Review by Michelle
My 7th grade daughter absolutely loved this book! She even finished it ahead of time!
This makes learning history and geography fun!
Review by Beth
My 7th grade daughter loves this book! The creator did a masterful job weaving culture and history in with geography. The addition of recipes, a variety of activities, and clearly written text make this curriculum enjoyable and educational.
An Engaging Geography Course
Review by Virginia
A Child’s Geography Volume 4: Explore Medieval Kingdoms is an engaging geography course. The included photos and diagrams are colorful and interesting. It is designed to be used 3 days a week, for 36 weeks, which is perfect for those who do classes outside the home. I appreciate the variety of activities - including word puzzles, mazes, and map activities. I'm looking forward to doing the projects and creating the recipes with my daughter.
Nicely done!
Review by deonva
This course has been revised, and the revision is so nice! The course is 3 days a week, for a full 6th-7th grade school year. This schedule is nice because it allows you to incorporate supplemental ideas on the off days. The course includes art, history, and cooking. The book is colorfully done making it nice to include and smaller kids. And no additional teacher's guide is needed. We are looking forward to doing the other geography courses in this series.
Beautiful geography study!
Review by Becky
This is a gem of a book! It has beautiful pictures that takes your student through Western Europe. The recommended ages are 6th or 7th grade, but this book can captivate children and adults of all ages. The course is the 4th volume in the “A Child’s Geography” series, but can certainly be used out of order. The only mention I found in the book about previous volumes was in the Introduction. The course is designed to be completed 3 days a week with the traditional Master Books schedule broken into semesters, quarters, and weeks.

Each lesson contains vocabulary, worksheets, map work, timelines, activities, crafts, recipes, and art projects. A wonderful master material list is available in the beginning of the book for all crafts/recipes. Map Trek and Timeline - Wonders of Old, both from Master Books, would be great to add to this course as well. My favorite part of this book, besides the beautiful pictures, is that this course is completely self contained, no additional teachers guide is needed (which means that parts of this book would be considered consumable).
A Child's Geography: Explore Medieval Kingdoms
Review by Santina
The revised “A Child’s Geography” series is a favorite in our home and “Explore Medieval Kingdoms” does not disappoint! We love to use it as a family read aloud and enjoy the vibrant, colorful pictures and recipes. The writing activities, timelines, and travel logs are great for family discussion and learning. I especially love the detailed maze and bridge building activities. I highly recommend this book for parents looking to engage their middle schooler while still including younger siblings.
Interesting, Educational, and Fun
Review by Dawn
I absolutely love this book! It is full of beautiful full color pictures and maps. The geography is written from a Christian worldview and in a very conversational living book style. There are fun activities, recipes, crafts, and short answer questions. There are even prayer prompts included. There is a materials list at the beginning that makes it super easy to make sure you have what you need for each chapter if you choose to do the hands-on activities. There is also a schedule that breaks the book down into three days a week, but it is easy to flex and do what fits your family’s schedule. I highly recommend this book.
This is a beautiful geography/history book.
Review by Kathleen
I love this book! The pictures are so vibrant. You feel like you are traveling to each of these countries.
This curriculum takes you on an adventure to Medieval times to visit the swiftly changing countries of Western Europe.
Using a mix of geography and history, you will learn about the medieval world, its kingdom, and its people.
Some of our favorite parts of this were the: travel logs (geography and history notes of each area we explored), the recipes (with supply lists), the mapping it-out pages, and the pictures. I cannot say enough about how amazing all of the photos in this book are. It is amazing to see photos of so much architecture that was built during medieval times and still stands today.
I recommend this curriculum to anyone who enjoys seeing how God worked through history.
A fun and interesting way to learn geography!
Review by Danielle
A Child’s Geography Volume 4: Explore Medieval Kingdoms is an exciting way to learn about several European countries as well as their histories. I ABSOLUTELY love the way this book is written. The style of writing definitely separates it from your typical textbook. The author makes me want to visit these countries! She writes as though the student is actually on a trip and traveling the world with her. I think it is interesting how you learn the history of each country while also seeing what it is like if you would visit today. The pictures are beautiful! Each region has a recipe to try that is specific to that area. I would recommend not skipping the recipes as it really adds to the whole experience. Students will have a variety of activities to complete for each section in the book: crossword puzzles, designing postcards, building bridges, making scrapbook pages, and building an aqueduct, just to name a few. Students will have the opportunity to develop their map skills as well by labeling the countries throughout the book. I found this course exceptional and a fun way to learn geography!
Fun Geography Course
Review by Lacee
We LOVE this revision. We have the original Child’s Geography: Medieval Times book and this revision is wonderful. We love the included Recipe options as my kids always like making new things. The material and grocery list broken out by chapter is super helpful. The pictures throughout are beautiful.

This course is completed in 3 days per week (you can modify to fit your homeschool needs). My son is currently studying World Story 3 and we use this alongside that, tying in wherever we can. The Adventure Challenges, activities, worksheets, maps, timelines, Loving Your Neighbor sections and Recipes all create fun ways to tie into the reading without being too overwhelming. I also appreciate the Travel Log summaries at the end of each chapter.

The chapter reviews at the end of the book can be used as either quizzes or as a basic review of concepts for your student. Each review is only 15 questions. There is also a comprehensive final exam. Overall this is a great, fun course for anyone needing a Geography course to go alongside learning about Medieval Times!
