Chaucer's Stories Simply Told
Chaucer's Stories Simply Told
Price: $14.95

We have searched high and low for an version of the Canterbury Tales that is both appropriate for and pleasing to children. When we discovered this book by Mary Seymour we knew we had finally found a treasure.

In this delightful collection of Canterbury Tales adaptations, children will be introduced to Chaucer and sixteen of his most delightful characters. With Old English sprinkled throughout, the flavor of Medieval storytelling shines through.

Each pilgrim on the way to Canterbury is asked to tell a story in order to win the prize of the best story. This volume includes tales from The Knight, the Man-of-Law, the Wife of Bath, the Friar, the Clerk, the Squire, Franklin, the Doctor, the Pardoner, the Prioress, the Monk, the Nun's Priest, the Canon's Yeoman, and the Manciple.

We commissioned this edition so that our families can finally enjoy reading Chaucer together with no worries about problematic content. Because it is new, this book is not included in the lesson plans yet. We highly recommend reading it in Volume 3, Unit 3 with upper Grammar and Logic level students. It is best when read aloud.

A biographical narrative of the life Chaucer is also included.

Illustrated. For grade 5-8.
