Reader Reviews

Living in England in the 1500's
This book helped me learn about how people in England lived in the 1500's. It also told me of how the Queen was dressed, acted and what she ate. But it was mostly about how Queen Elizabeth grew up. This book made me feel like I was living there at that time.
