Queen Elizabeth rose to power when men had all the power, after King Henry VIII split the religious community in England, after the reign of Bloody Mary. She was able to unite the country and make it a stronger military power – all while doing it her way.
This one was a read aloud I did with my students. Even the boys seemed to enjoy it, and they don’t always remain interested in books that have a female lead character. What helped was that this series is short and to the point. It gives the students a good feeling for life at the time. Although I don’t think that many would choose to read this on their own.
