Book Overview

Hear Ye, Hear Ye Travel to the age of the Renaissance and learn why Henry VI is one of the most famous kings in English history.

Mainly remembered for his six marriages and his self-appointment as the Supreme Head of the Church of England, Henry VI was also attractive, educated, and athletic. When Henry Tudor ascended to the English thrown at the age of 17, his reign looked promising. But by the time of his death in 1547, King Henry VI was characterized as an extremely egotistical, harsh, and insecure king. Though Henry VI's legacy isn't free from scandal, his monarchy thrived due to the achievements of his daughter Queen Elizabeth I.

   Needs to be read with care
Although the book reads well and holds a child's interest, it contains misleading or inaccurate statements. On p. 30, the author claims that Parliament met only occasionally during Henry's time. This statement ignores the significance of the Reformation - Parliament and distorts it. The figure is in dispute and even during the height of power, Henry kept alive the form of trial by jury, a consequential legacy.
   This is one of my favorite WHOHQ book
I really love this book, but you could have mentioned more facts, like he pick Anne of Cleves because he likes the way she looks or Henry was about to arrest Cattherine Parr, but she forgives him.
   always an interesting read
My daughter got into Henry VIII and his 6 wives, so I turned to the Who Was Series for her to learn more. Definitely a great option to have. We learn something from everyone.
   Read and teach your kids some fun history!
I read this to my son while he made us dinner that night and it was so nice. You 'll have kids ask questions like why a bishop or a lord is so prepared with responses.
   Daughter loved! Interesting and educational at the same time!
This entire series of the books is fantastic! We bought this one about Henry VIII as well as the one about Elizabeth I for our six-year-old daughter before a trip to the UK. I was pleasantly surprised '' by how interested she was in these books and how much she remained. The book strikes an excellent balance between sharing fax and telling a story that a child can get interested in. We bought 6 or 8 other books on British history from London, and these were far and away the best. Highly recommended!
   Great read with your child
My 8 year old son and I love these books. I find it particularly interesting to Henry VIII. At bedtime, we read it straight and was able to finish it in 3 days. My son does not like to read. AT, like AT ALL. Your kid can go to school confident that some of the greats of the world were and that's enough for me.
