"My boys, aged 7 and 10, really liked the pictures and the facts about knights. It was a fun way to learn. Some of the words were a little advanced and they needed help, but they enjoyed reading about knights." said.

"Another day, another discovery of someone trying to make a profit off the intellectual property of others. My review for most of these books, when I find them, and when I bother, is mostly the same. Why? Because with the exception of the titles, and WHICH pictures and sentences they skimmed from the internet, the books are all exactly the same.

I discovered this "book" when it was listed, along with fifty other books by the same author (although some of the books list a different author on the inside) as a free resource for homeschooling. I am both a homeschooling mom and a former elementary school teacher with a Master's degree in Literacy, so I'm always interested to see what's out there.

This book (and all the other ones in the "series") is nothing more than a collection of pictures skimmed from the internet. Typing "knights" into Google images turns up most of the pictures in this book very quickly, coming from a large variety of websites. The vast majority of pictures in this book are probably being used illegally with no compensation for the owners of the images. (In any case, there are no statements in the book giving credit to the owners of the pictures used, or showing permissions for using them.)

Underneath each picture is a random fact about knights. They are not organized in any fashion, and most of them are unrelated to any other information in the book. They are also NOT at a reading level appropriate for early readers, despite the "FOR KIDS! LEARN TO READ!" advertisement on the cover.

I suspect these are copied and pasted from somewhere, but I didn't search to find out where. Someone else on a review of one of the books found most of the sentences on Wikipedia.

There is no table of contents or any other non-fiction feature you'd want in a children's research book. There is no listing of sources where the facts were obtained.

My guess is that these books were copied and pasted together quickly by someone hoping to make a quick dollar off of unsuspecting consumers. (While this book was free when I purchased it, there were MANY books built exactly the same way that had a price tag attached, and I'm sure this book will not always be free.)
" said.

"My little brother loves it the book is great for people that love knights I also say that it would be more likely for boys to get this book do you want this book" said.

"My kids love reading it and seeing the pictures. We talk about the picture and imagine ourselves dressed like that and how difficult it may have been to use or wear their clothing, swords, & other items. It's a fun book" said.
