    The Renaissance is a short (you could pretty much read it in one sitting) yet descriptive primer to the life of people during the time period.Each page is dedicated to a different aspect of renaissance life and covers the spectrum of peasants to the upper class. The information given is nice little paragraphs that cover govermnet,family life,sports and recreation,crafts,printing,literature,science, da Vinci and Michelangelo,etc. It also gives a two page summary on the reformation.

    Got this for my 12-year old grandson as a supplement to his history textbook. Great illustration, very engaging.

    Well laid out of pertinent information in describing the Renaissance era. Describes all aspects and brings it together in a way that middle schoolers can understand. Great pictures, too.

    The book covers a lot of topics; for example, family life, clothing, crafts, printing, science - but has only one small paragraph on music that gave no real information (the author notes that music was now played for entertainment and not just for religious purposes). I thought this was a big omission, and so did not give the book to the child I had ordered it for. Otherwise it was well written with nice illustrations.
