    The Story of the World provides a nice overview of world history in a sensible and easy to follow chronological order. It has provided a nice framework for our 2nd/3rd grade homeschool history lessons. We are moving slowly through the book and supplementing each chapter with many other, more detailed, activities. What I especially appreciate about this series is the inclusion of cultures and civilizations outside of Europe - this is truly a WORLD history book. As a child in public school I was only vaguely aware of the history and achievements of civilizations outside of Europe and America. I hope to give my child a broader perspective and I think this series will helpful in that regard.

    My daughter just finished kindergarten and LOVES these books. However, I feel that the amount of mythology and gory content would be better suited for 5th grade and up. Also, for those of us who are Christian, it would be nice if there was more emphasis on the difference between mythology (not true) and stories from the bible (true). Since they are presented in the same format, it would be easy for kids to assume they are all true or all make-believe. My daughter enjoyed a few of the activities from the workbook but got bored w/ all the coloring pages, 1/2 or more I wouldn't give her because they were too scary/gory.

    I had heard many positive reviews about this series (for homeschooling the elementary set) ... I eagerly anticipated getting my copy so we could get started on our history studies. Upon arrival and the perusal of the material, my heart sank. I do not think that the study of gods and pagan rituals is a good thing for any Christian home to be focusing on and that is exactly the focus this series has ... I believe there is a place for mentioning that they worshipped other gods (the Bible says as much), but it doesn't need to be glorified or studied to the point/extent that the author goes into. I also noticed the Bible stories themselves were far from accurate. This book is going straight back and we will find a new history book that is better suited for our home.
