Item description for Wonders of Old: A Blank Timeline Book of World History by Terri Johnson...
History comes alive when your student records significant historical events in his own hand. He will make connections between historical events by recording entries across academic subjects... Kingdoms, empires, rulers, scientists, literature, great writers, musicians, and so much more!
It is a proven fact that completing timelines help cement historical facts for students and adults alike. A timeline can become the compilation of a student's learning. Seeing the progression of time in the form of a timeline will allow your student to gain a better understanding of the flow of history.
The truth is... many students may study the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks, the end of Hundred Years' War between France and Britain, and the printing of the first book, the Gutenberg Bible, never realizing that these three events all happened within the same year - 1453AD. These events are seemingly unrelated and yet the use of a timeline can unlock the mystery as to why all of these events occurred within the same year. A timeline will give your student a unique perspective of time. By seeing the events of history recorded in linear progression, your students will make connections between those events in history that they might not otherwise make.
Wonders of Old is divided into four historical time periods: ancient, medieval, new world and modern. Significant dates are listed at the conclusion of each section as a helpful reference. This hardcover book measures 9x12 and is printed on extra thick 70# paper for durability.

Reviews - What do customers think about Wonders of Old: A Blank Timeline Book of World History?
Good Value and Good Quality Sep 5, 2008
I looked at many timeline books and binders on the internet and at education fairs and by far this was the best choice we made. It's hardcover which is nice and it's bound so you don't have to worry about loose pages getting damaged. It has ample space to write many entries so you should never need anything more. If you are looking for something to keep it simple and clean you will enjoy this book for many years to come.
Wonders of Old is a 'wonderful' book! Jul 15, 2008
Wonders of Old by Terri Johnson is an amazing book. If you are home educating your children or you are just an ardent history buff, this is the book for you. It not only functions well for its intended purpose, it is a GORGEOUS book. I mean, face it, there are lots of timeline products out there. I have tried lots in my 20 years homeschooling. Nothing, NOTHING, compares to this book in its feel, presentation, heck, the pages even smell good! Printed on gorgeous 70# paper and bound in a beautiful oversize smooth hard cover, this is a book that you will be keeping on your bookshelf after your children have finished their education. When finished, or being worked through, it is actually a book that you will be proud to show and it becomes a scrapbook of sorts for your educational journey. Trust me, you will not be disappointed with this book. I am buying a second for my youngest child, and a third, for ME:) Love it, a lot! I really like the way it is divided into the four time periods as well, ancient, medieval, new world and modern. So if you are studying from a classical, Charlotte Mason, traditional, or unschooling approach, you can use this book with great success. You will find a few pages of important dates after each section and also pages at the back for notes. Go ahead, use it,fill it up. You might want to hold it for a while first like I did, but using it is even more fun:) H. Shaw Canada
large and sturdy Jul 15, 2008
This is a large, sturdy hardback book. Nicely bound. Something my children will be proud to add dates to. We use the stickers with pictures and dates on them. With this book I don't need to worry about not enough wall space, or pages falling out of our three-ring binder.
Great Timeline Book Jul 15, 2008
This is a sturdy, hardcover timeline book with nice quality paper pages. The book is divided into 4 timeline sections: Ancient, Medievel, New World and Modern. After each of the four sections there is a page or two of Significant dates for that time period. It also has several pages in the back of the book for notes. Our family used to use a wall timeline but switched to this book instead. Each of my 5 children have their own timeline book, they put a picture of the person or event and then can write a few lines to help them remember.
Recommended for use with Sonlight Curriculum Feb 15, 2007
I bought this book instead of the one that Sonlight offers because of the hard cover and I wanted something that looked like a "real book". I'm glad I did. I've never seen Sonlight's in person, but I was under the inpression that it had a "workbook" look to it. This doesn't.
