About the Author
Chana Stiefel is the author of more than 20 non-fiction books for kids about exploding volcanoes, stinky castles, and other fun stuff. DADDY DEPOT is her debut picture book. While she would never return her father--or her husband--to the daddy store (she likes their jokes too much), she worries that her kids will return her to the Mommy Market.
This series introduces reluctant readers to the trials and hardships of those who lived in the Middle Ages. Thorough coverage is provided, and students will come away with a good base of knowledge about medieval life. Although some concepts and practices are touted as '"yucky" by current standards, the authors are non-judgmental. The tone is light and conversational; chapters often start out addressing the reader as "you" to draw students into the narrative. Illustrations are comical in nature, but they also illuminate the concepts presented in the text. This series is sure to hold reluctant readers' attention, and they will come away with a better understanding of medieval times. Bibliography. Glossary Websites. Index.
