“The title really says it all – this is a delightful book of stories. Ms. Bauer’s writing style is engaging and easy to read, and she includes details that are intrinsically interesting to children. Some stories are fables from around the world and some are fictional stories that illustrate life in that time in history. The details of real battles, kingdoms, cultures, and customs weave together a story worth telling over and over.”– The Old Schoolhouse Magazine
