Middle Ages: 500's-1500's edit - delete
throughout the middle ages, children, compared to current standards, were not valued. Poor children spent most of their day working, therefore limited time was left in the day for literature / reading books. Books within this Era were extremely rare and precious. Children often only listened to Adult work from the likes of Beowolf's stories Son of Ronald, El Cid, Kind Arthur and Robin Hood. Children and adults enjoyed folk tales therefore the literature rich with fantasy and imagination. Myths were the way they made sense of the world during this time.
