My son has been preparing a school presentation on Joan of Arc and this is one of the books we checked out from the library. I thought it gave a very good overview of who she was and the amazing things she accomplished in her very short life. It is a good read-aloud for any age but probably on a 4th grade and up independent reading level. She really is a very inspiring historical figure!

CGI illustrations, complicated historical text. Definitely for older readers middle grades research.
really weak, I thought
