Barefoot Book's promise of celebrating art and story is certainly delivered in Arthur of Albion. I was transfixed by the subtleties of the art. Utterly. As I read the text I began to read aloud - my sixteen year old son stopped what he was doing and listened intently. The phrasing and paragraph structure is so fine and respectful of the tale and the listener - a wonderful read aloud for all ages! This is a cross-curricular gem - history, art, folklore, geography and social traditions. 4 Picnic Basket Stars! -- Nan Hoekstra, Picnic Basket --Picnic Basket
his wonderful composite of stories will be an exciting collection for readers, especially in grades five and six, who are interested in reading and experiencing life in medieval times told through legends. The fifth graders at our school seem to enjoy the book talk and immediately went to look up Tintagel. The teachers felt that the descriptive language used in the text could extend to their creative writing assignments. -- Picnic Basket --Picnic Basket
