Through rich and exciting narrative, special History Hop! sections, and black and white illustrations, our History Quest: Middle Times chapter book takes you on a journey through the Middle Ages—a time of knights and ninjas, princesses and sultans, great explorations and technological advances, exciting cities, and fascinating figures. You’ll visit faraway places to meet and learn from the stories of everyday folks, famous world leaders, and characters in classic medieval literature.
Middle Times is appropriate as a read-aloud for younger elementary-age children and as an independent read for older students.Learn More

Pitch in to help a serf family build a wattle and daub house.
Explore the South China Sea with Admiral Zheng He [jung HUH] aboard the world-famous Treasure Fleet.
