Logan (age 6.5) loved this! Beautiful illustrations show how James, sent by his family to a manor house at 7 to become a page, spends 14 years going from being a page, to a squire, to a knight, learning horsemanship, serving, reading, music, archery, sword fighting, jousting, and all the other things that were required for a knight of the 15th century. It even quotes a book from the time, called "The Babees' Book," which taught manners. For example, "Whether you spit near or far, hold your hand before your mouth to hide it." Words to live by.
