    1. Also published under the name Deborah M Prum Deborah Prum

    2. This book is a solid overview of the Renaissance for kids. They did a nice job of juxtaposing Ghiberti and Brunelleschi, the Medicis and Savonarola, and so on. Chapter 5 covers Renaissance women, which was fortuitous, as Posy was asking, "What were all the women doing?" in aggrieved tones. I was also pleased with the clarity with which the author demonstrated that Gutenberg paved the way for the Protestant Reformation. I will use this again with my youngest on our next history rotation.

    3. This a a really good way for someone to get an overview of the Renaissance and Reformation period of history. Although targeted at children, every age will learn and enjoy this book.

    4. I checked this book out because I have been reading the Core Knowledge series, and this book came highly recommended from the Core Knowledge Foundation. Having read it, I have to say that I highly recommend it too. It was fun, interesting, and fact-packed. I learned a lot, and was entertained in process. Two thumbs up!
