Step into a world of royal beauty when kings and queens lived in grand luxury at the Palace of Versailles: France's Royal Jewel. Young readers will wander through the decorated rooms and extensive gardens of the Palace, originally built as a hunting lodge and now a national museum in France. Through the story of Versailles, students will meet the kings who ruled a nation, and the ordinary citizens who changed French history forever. Four-color photos, maps, timelines and compelling narratives guarantee to inform and entertain.
"Large color photos, maps, and diagrams enhance the text, written like a story. Little fact boxes on each page give readers even more information?This set of books would be checked out often for social studies units and the lower level of readability would make this an attractive series to multi-age levels. Recommended."
