As I mentioned in a previous post our entire year of history is devoted to the Middle Ages. The book we are using as our spine is Famous Men of the Middle Ages and the accompanying workbook. Last week it was recommended through the workbook to read Beowulf. I am ashamed to say that I have no recollection of ever reading this epic Anglo-Saxon poem. We chose a young adult retelling to read.
We enjoyed it but did find it to be quite gruesome. The illustrations were beautiful, well done, and suited the story well..
Today we watched an animated version on you tube to give Grace a different perspective.
