This is a good overview for kids of all ages. I think this is way better than what I have seen in public school printings. They are full of color and graphics and that liberal history that does everything it can to avoid or malign the Bible, God and Christ.
I've just started but have looked through, it has more suggestions on projects and work than I care for! But that's a good thing. And its format is easy enough that I can even make my own tests or use hers.
Great for integrating Biblical and secular history

This is very easy to understand and is almost written in conversational style. The information is presented clearly and systematically. There seems to be some extensive prep work for the parents in the early stages. The author writes an extensive preface about how to best utilize the book and its exercises. The material isn't stiff and boring like some history books are. We are enjoying it and plan to continue with the other volumes.
We will be using this curriculum next school year, but as I flipped through it, I got really excited! I love the extra activities to help make history come alive. We'll also be using a timeline and some additional material from the publisher. This looks like it will be easy to do for all three of my boys (grades 5, 3, and 1).
I felt like this book was much more Bible History than anything else. I knew it would have a Christian perspective, but I guess I just wasn't familiar with how the book would lay everything out. I thought the Bible characters would be woven in with the World History Lessons, but they were separate lessons. Which isn't in itself bad, but I expected it to have world History with Bible facts interjected. This would be great for a Bible class addition.
