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!
History for children Sep 4, 2007
This was a good review for elementary children. It is not an in-depth study of any point in particular but it is an excellent overview of historical events. It is easy reading and gives information that makes history come alive. However, it is not a history book, which is why it is such good reading and a wonderful overview. If you want a lot of information about a particular event or time, then you need an additional text.
Great Book Mar 31, 2007
This history book is amazing. It has rich words, very well written and it make history fun and exciting.Don't listen to those people who gave a small amount of stars, this book is great and I srongly recomend it.
My son loves this series Dec 12, 2006
My son started with Book 1 of this series on audio and eagerly listened to the CDs over and over. He honestly knows way more about history and geography than anyone I know (including adults). His greatest loves are maps, geography, history, and military battles and equipment due to The Story of the World. This series has prompted a 9 year old boy to read scholarly tomes from the library and bookstore on those topics and now he eagerly watches the military and history channels. He is already planning on going to Annapolis and has commited to becomming an Eagle Scout to help him get into the naval academy. We never actually used the activity books, but I bought them (at his insistence) and he has used them independently. At this time he is begging me for the new Book 4 activity guide because it has tons of maps! Another great resource is Geography Songs.
best history I have used Mar 24, 2006
If you are teaching more than one age group I couldn't recomend a better history curriculum. I have 5 kids from 6yrs to 16. We all use the same book for history. I read aloud to the kids who can't read yet or who would rather listen. If you want to use this you will also need to buy the Activity Book. It includes lots of things to do for each subject including a list of books to read for older kids. I realy like the receipes for each time period.
