I love how this book is written. It is informative yet an "easy read". My fourth grader has enjoyed my reading it to her and I add details to the reading that I have studied, which is not necessary but fun. She enjoys the parts of the book that are written as a story in the time frame for that chapter. We are only through the 4th chapter but we are enjoying it so far.
I have found this book to be well-written and easy to use. In conjunction with the workbook, your child will have a complete history curriculum. My only "wish" would be for some colored pictures or text.
I just read the entire chapter of seven again and did not see anything about Abraham at all in the chapter. It is about Hammurabi and the Babylonians. I have read from the Revised Edition that was printed in 2006. Not sure if she read the original and there were errors like that?
I own Mystery of History Vol 1 and I like both of these books. I'm not sure which one I like better. Couldn't go wrong with either author. Both invested a lot of time in them.
