    I bought all 4 volumes of Story of the World, with the plan to cover it all over 4 years. I debated whether to get this activity book, and I am so glad I did! This makes planning each lesson so easy, and I know our study will be so much more complete because of the suggested reading, maps, questions, and projects. Also, since I'm using this book with 3 students (1st, 2nd, 4th grades) I love that the book offers a range of options, so I can tailor their activities to their different levels. I am not a unit studies person, but by using this book it's really easy to bring art, reading, and writing into your history lessons. In fact, I am using history as our art time this year. As far as the value, I feel that the number of student reproducible pages, which I'm copying for 3, makes this an excellent value. The pages are perforated for easy copying. I am very happy with this book and already plan to purchase the blue activity book for next year.

    I was extremely disappointed in this book. While it seemed to begin well, I found several inaccuracies/assumptions throughout the text.

    While discussing Abram, the book said that he thought about talking to the moon god and that his father consulted the moon god prior to moving to Ur. I double checked Scripture, and it is no where to be found. Abram's god was the God Almighty. No questions.

    While talking about Jesus, the book tells of him being born in a cave instead of a stable. It depicts the Roman way of life as peaceful and happy (pax romana), which totally negates the slavery, cruelty, and harsh conditions the Jews lived in during that time.

    This book seems to be much fiction mixed with some history. I couldn't recommend it as even a side reference book.

    This product is great when used with the Story of the world books. Great review questions and coloring pages and maps to really help your child see what the Story of the World is talking about. It also gives suggestions on other activities that you can do. Makes lesson planning really easy!!!

    ~ Our Experience ~

    Organized: Nicely organized for me to use as well as our children to pick & choose activities. They chose both writing & hands-on activities. Easy & practical for me to pick up quickly as reference & a "to do" book. (See reviews below of how the book itself is organized.)

    Adapts Well: Our children keep a "PEP" {People, Events, Places} Notebook in which they keep yearly studies of past & present. The activity sheets work well in their PEP notebooks as well as records of their projects. Its then all easily set for the evaluator at the end of our school year.

    Fun: My kids enjoy and were actually excited to use this activity book for their PEP Notebooks. They begged me to make sure we buy the activity books for this up-coming year!

    Individualized: We read the "spine" together, but the activity book encourages them reinforce learning on their own and in their own way! We used it for an eight year old and twelve year old this past year.

    Plan: For the up-coming year we plan to use the same set-up with a new time period.

    Simply said - we all were pleased in which it made for a great year of study.

    Easy reading in which I was totally surprised at what my youngest daughter (8 yo) remembers! I read aloud while referring as needed to the pronunciation key.

    This was a great core History book for our past year of Ancient History focus. I liked the introduction to various civilizations of the same time period and then how the author later brings in the "Do you remember when . .. . or about . .. " a previous passage -> A built in review.
