Joan of Arc (DK Readers Level 4)
"Saint Joan of Arc was born in 1412 in a French village called Domremy. Joan was an ordinary peasant girl until she began to hear the voices of angels and saints. These heavenly advisors told Joan she was chosen to lead the French people in their war against English domination. In time, Joan leads armies against her country's enemies with faith and ferocity, succeeding against all odds. But she pays the ultimate price for her courage.
"The text features challenging vocabulary and sentence structure while tracing Joan of Arc's life. Additional information about everyday life in the Middle Ages is given in sidebar format... Photographs of medieval artifacts, fine art reproductions and original watercolor paintings by Mike Bell amply illustrate this biography. Ages 8 to 10." -- Children's Literature
