Today is the 15th- the fortnight of my post for the letter B for Historical Tapestry’s ABC Challenge. For this one I’ve chosen to blog about:
The Raucous Royals, by Carlyn Beccia
I loved reading about the gossip and truths in this wonderfully illustrated history book. I read it together with my youngest daughter, Sophia. She also helped write the review for it. You can read that here.
Beccia kept us entertained throughout by doing a fantastic job at retelling history in a unique and creative way. She also helped set a lot of the facts straight. This was the most enjoyable history –geared-to-children book I’ve ever read. The reason behind this is that The Raucous Royals is an interactive book that motivates the reader to keep on reading just to satisfy the curiosity. The gossip is simply irresistible- the images captivating and the history completely accurate. It’s become a family favourite.
