The following history series represent all that is vivid, exciting, and factual in history publishing today. Consider especially “First Facts: The Middle Ages” series. Merely glancing at their pages is practically impossible. A glance turns into studying a caption. That turns into reading a page, then the book. Poof! History is alive! With three to six sentences per page, large, clear fonts, and succinct descriptions, these books are ideal introductions. (“Series Made Simple,” School Library Journal)
