      Our family has only read the main textbook. We did not use the workbooks, so we don't have an opinion about them. The textbook was fun and engaging. I read it aloud to my 2nd grader, and she couldn't get enough. This book tells history in a fun way. The down side to this book for Christians who believe in Creation Science is that this book is Evolution based. There are several places in the book that mention Earth being around for millions of years for example. This book is great as a read aloud for parents to use as a teaching point for young children, or for an older child that is knowledgeable about the beliefs of other religions and scientists who are not believers.

      If you are a bible believing Christian, please do not purchase this set! There is too many "errors" in this book that do not line up with biblical perspective. I believe you can use errors for "teaching moments" to show your children what is not correct, but when you need the child to do their work by themselves--those teaching moments are lost. I have multiple children whom I homeschool.

      Although we have not used this yet my Husband did read the main textbook and asked if he could actually teach the children this subject. He loves History and said this was a very good textbook. Can't wait to do the activities with the kiddos. Looks wonderful!

      I am a homeschool mom, a christian, evangelical, homeschool mom. I am also a christian that does not agree with the straight six 24 hour day teaching of creation. Why is it that I should hang my head in shame for having the scientific and theological sense to say God is GOD and our sense of time is clearly limited to our time on this earth!? I am excited to see a text that embraces the "long, long, long" ago that is so hard to find in Christian texts. I hope this is a continuing trend, as many evangelical physicists will tell you to just read up on the Theory of Relativity and challenge God on time. :) Thanks, CBD.

      very disappointing!

      I'm surprised to see books like this listed in a Christian bookstore!

      I don't know what is worse, the book itself with all the evolution mixed up with Christianity (wolf in sheep's clothing?) or the " Andreola Review", which reads:"As was generally accepted when the main body of the book was written, Old Testament characters such as Abraham, Moses, and Joseph have a place in history and are referred to as real people. One entire chapter gives a story of Christ—as a significant person involved in significant events."

      As a Christian and a homeschool mom, I would never use these books to teach my children, and I do not recommend them to anyone that considers himself a Christian!

      Very disappointing!
