    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.

      We love these series. They are very well written and easy for children to understand. We used to accompany what we were doing in our CC community each week and also use the activity guide and cd. They are worth every penny!

      My 9 year old is homeschooled and was asked to read this as part of her history coop class. We both really felt it was a bit much for her and she struggled with understanding it! I really don't see the excitement in it at all. Neither of us are history buffs, so maybe that's why, but we will look for something a little less overwhelming and easier to learn for history.

      I bought the entire set but my kids, ages 7 and 9, have only started reading this one. My kids are not home schooled and I bought this set as an enrichment activity after reading an article about home schooling in the paper. Susan has a way of writing that really capture's my children's attention. My kids are also learning about history as well as geography because we reference maps as we are reading. Highly recommend this series!

      This book is a great addition to our family library. It gives a brief historical overview of the regions of the world during the specific time period of the Middle Ages. Has pictures, stories, and trivia to add to each section. She asks questions in each chapter that are thought provoking and engage you as a reader. Although my children go to public school I was looking for something to add to their historical knowledge to help fill in the gaps they are not getting at school. This book makes history interesting and also great to read as an adult. I have read it aloud to my 5 and 9 year old and they get it and love it. Looking forward to reading the other volumes.
