Fantastic Resource Mar 19, 2005
As the other reviewer said, this is a dream come true. This book is specially designed for the Christian homeschooler. As such, it focuses heavily on the Bible as a supplemental history book, has a relevant scripture verse to memorize at the beginning of each of its fifteen chapters, and puts Christ as the beginning, center and end of history. The color illustrations are really cute and lively and the text is easy enough for emerging readers to follow along as it's read out loud and difficult enough to challenge independent readers. The book itself has quality graphics and is very sturdy for a paperback.
My first-grade son reads the sections of the chapters by himself and then we discuss it. Each chapter has a vocabulary list, a suggested art project, a suggested geography lesson (a good atlas or globe will be necessary though the book does have some very detailed and child-friendly maps, and a unit review. I strongly recommend getting the inexpensive coordinating coloring book and teacher's manual from the publisher as well - the whole set will cost you under twenty bucks, making it an excellent value for a self-contained K-1 history curriculum. I am very impressed with this publisher (Christian Liberty Press) in general, so much so that we've since bought other materials from them, but this particular title is fun AND well-rounded.
I would recommend it without hesitation to anyone seeking a Biblical, in-depth, child-friendly introduction to history.
