There’s just something about the Middles Ages – with its timeless tales of romance, war, and royal splendor – that will always captivate people, young and old. In Knights & Castles, for kids, they’ll explore the daily life of nobles and knights and learn all about life in castles. However, as kids reading Knights & Castles will discover, life in these imposing fortresses was probably not all it was cracked up to be. Castles were usually cold, damp, dark, and drafty places, and entertainment was sparse. There were no TVs, no Internet, and no video games, and the only real entertainment was the jesters who occasionally performed in the Great Hall.
The life of a knight, on the other hand, was anything but dull. Starting from age seven, young boys from wealthy families were apprenticed as pages to older knights and trained night and day for up to 15 years. When not protecting castles or rescuing damsels in distress, knights played in tournaments, trained hawks, and tried to live by a chivalrous code of conduct. Kids who are curious about the most famous knights in history, such as Sir Lancelot, and how knightly tales continue to show up in today’s movies and games, will get to explore that and more in Knights & Castles. For kids eager to keep learning about this fascinating era, a list of suggested books at the end just may inspire them to make a special trip to the library.
Great magazine! Loaded with activities and great information. Written at a level that many ages can comprehend.
I love this mag for my children. The articles and graphics are top notch. The overall quality from print to paper quality is excellent.
I ordered 20 copies of the Bones issue for my husband to put in his patient rooms. He has had very positive feedback from his patients about them.
The topics in the various magazines have sparked great conversational skills as well as working on language literacy with my students… GREAT TOPICS for a variety of students.
My girl reads it cover to cover the day we get them and I love having them on the shelf for reference ;) ... thanks for a great and fun learning adventure tool.
