An Excellent World History Primer Sep 21, 2007
There is no doubt that this series is well written. My son read each of the four books in the span of less than a week. They really piqued his interest. These books will let you know what really turns on your child, but you'll need to go on for further, more in-depth review.
Can't recommend this series enough for the pre-teen set!
Engaging and Informative! Aug 27, 2007
This is our second purchase of the Story of the World series. All three of my school age kids (6,8,10 yrs.) just love to listen to these tapes. It is giving all of us (mom included) a much more comprehensive picture of all the parts of history we have learned with other books. We highly recommend this product for your family as a history program or just for listening to in the car for fun. The acitvity book is also full of great ideas for making this as involved or as simple as you would like it to be.
Superb service Mar 27, 2007
I got what I wanted, at a fair price, exactly as described. Perfect.
Wonderful Product Nov 4, 2006
The history is in a story format that kids can relate to and understand. I homeschool 3 children and absolutely love this curriculum. The story pages to color help my youngest follow along as the older ones read. We have the activity book and there are supplementary books that we get from the library. The quizes also help alot!
Everyone liked this but me... Aug 15, 2006
I think I kinda jumped the gun, I bought this for a first grader and I think it is for older kids.. it seems um, like a nice book. I'm used to KONOS and well, this didn't seem to make any history information fun... so, it depends on your teaching style.
