Books for Young Readers: The Middle Ages and Renaissance

The Linkspages at

I compiled this list for a webpage of suggestions for librarians who wished to feature books on the Middle Ages and Renaissance in conjunction with medieval events & activities. These would also be good choices for parents who want to provide their children with interesting books on medieval history. I've updated the list with a few newer titles, and added links to Amazon for the books that are still available in-print.

This list mixes non-fiction with historical fiction; read the descriptions on Amazon for details.

A list of children's books on life in the 18th century is available elsewhere on this site.

Ages 4-8
Ages 9-12
Young Adult
Activity Books (various reading levels)
