Children's Books for Middle Ages History

Middle Ages & the Renaissance Book List

 

Ancient World History Book List –
Part 5 (Middle Ages & the Renaissance)

Welcome back!
If you’ve been following this series, thanks!
This is the last section in the Ancient World History Curriculum.
The Middle Ages & the Renaissance have SO many amazing people and places and events that it is really difficult to narrow it all down… but I’ve done my best, and here are my favorite books for the Middle Ages & the Renaissance Unit.


Free Homeschool History Curriculum

If you’ve just joined in, you may like to check out the first post for these units
–> Free Ancient World History Curriculum  and the supplemental book lists for the previous sections as well.
These books are NOT required for the studies… they’re just my favorite resources (most I’ve personally used).  You will find the few required books for the curriculum included on each unit’s curriculum page.

*If you are continuing on to American History, I’ve got you covered with that too !  The next part in the series is the

*Spine Texts for the Ancient History Units-

I used 2 main history texts as the spine for the entire Free Ancient World History Curriculum series-
A Child’s History of the World” by Virgil Hillyer (you’ll see it in the lessons as -> CHOW), and “The Story of the World” series by Susan Wise Bauer (abbreviated in the lessons- SOTW).   HOWEVER, these (and all the other books I listed) are just a suggestion.  You can use one of them, all of them, another text you already have, or none of them at all!  Each daily lesson has TONS of online reading links, hands-on project suggestions, and  other options to fully explore the given topic.
