Centered on "living books," this creative approach to history integrates elements of both Charlotte Mason and Classical methods.
Short, very informal introductions are written directly to the student and open up each topic with a distinctly Christian perspective. Suggestions for activities or writing exercises are often included as well. The booklists follow, with selected annotations on what pages or sections to read and appropriate grade levels for each entry. Incredibly flexible in nature, families can proceed at the pace that's best for their students as they select "spines," biographies, in-print books, and out-of-print classics from the extensive lists.
Proceeding chronologically, entries include lists for Charles Darwin, Native American Indians, Middle America, Transcendentalists, Picasso, Grant Wood, World War II, Korean War, The Cold War, The Civil Rights Movement, and other relevant unit-study topics.
Grades 5-12; may be adapted for younger siblings. 269 pages, softcover, spiral-bound. Full resource list is included at the back of the book.

MariaNZAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5August 8, 2013MariaNZAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4We have been using TruthQuest History for a few years now, usually in conjunction with other "spine books" and have found it helped transformed our love of history and opened up our thinking as we pondered the ways of man, particularly in relation to God, rather then just learning facts. My only criticism is that these later books have been very American focused and coming from NZ it would have been fantastic if there was a little more Southern Hemisphere information - especially given that we , along with Australia, were part of the New World at the time.
