Feudalism in the Middle Ages

We are loving this book in our home, right now.

I mean, like the kids are fighting over whose turn it is to read. What a beautiful way to learn about how serfs in a feudal village lived during the Middle Ages, perfect to supplement Classical Conversations Weeks 1 through 5! {Parents, you may want to read through the monologues first as there are some passages that need some explanation.} Enjoy!

Our family will be using these for the first time this year. Stay tuned and I'll be sure to let you know how they work for us!
