Homeschool Specialists' Spotlights

Straightforward stories that introduce children to the grand sweep of history! This multilevel one-year curriculum for grades 1 to 4 covers ancient to modern times—from the dawn of civilization to the downfall of the Soviet Union—within the four volumes. Parents can read the text aloud to younger children or older children can read independently.

The corresponding activity books (sold separately) feature lots of projects, comprehensive questions, mapping, timelines, games, and crafts. Also included is a helpful reading list of fiction and nonfiction titles to enrich your child’s understanding of the time period.

Tests are sold separately, too, for parents who want to see how students are retaining the material.

My kids and I loved reading together and doing the projects. With so many great stories and activities to enjoy, there is something for everyone. This program can be used by the whole family to learn together! Approx. 350 pages each, softcovers.

    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.

    Not your typical History textbook!!!!!

    This isn't a "typical" History textbook, the title describes it exactly....its a story. It brings the dry data to life and enables the reader to put it into context which translates to improved retention. The reader learns about unique cultural practices, agriculture, geography, biographical data, etc. My kids (ages 4-8) can't wait to hear/read what happens next and look forward to History everyday! Thank you!
