Great book. Needed something to cover the basics, and this was it, and it's actually interesting. The big ideas are there, just what we were looking for. I bought with the teacher's manual and test packet, for a great price.
How do you make this mistake? At the top of page 42 of this book it states when referring to Charles 1 of England: "The king's wife, who was Marie Antoinette, was a French Catholic." King Charles was in fact married to Henrietta Maria, who was French. However, she was not Marie Antoinette. This makes me wonder how many other mistakes there are in this book.
