The Medieval Baker's Daughter:
A BiLingual Adventure in Medieval Life with Costumes, Banners Music, Food, and a Mystery Play
Madeleine Cosman, Bard Hall Press, Tenafly, N.J., 1984. Paperback.

A fictional account, in English and Spanish, of a girl circa 1412 England who is learning to be a professional baker like her mother. The story is followed by short sections on ways one might bring to life the sights, tastes, textures, and sounds of her world, such as performing a medieval play, making clothes, following recipes for a medieval feast, and learning some songs from the period. Fun and authentic feel.
