Ashley5 Stars Out Of 5I absolutely love these books!February 5, 2021AshleyI will start by saying these books are straightforward with their approach to history which I appreciate because my kids do not have long attention spans. I personally would not deduct stars for this not being creation history. For a child growing up in a Christian home I don't find it necessary, they are learning that already. I do not find it pagan or anti Christian in any way, it's just history in a very direct, yet unique way. If you're looking for an easy to deliver history lesson then this is for you. You read a chapter, the child takes a test (test book sold separately, highly recommend.) My daughter who struggles greatly with paying attention or retaining things is doing wonderful with this approach. She has even asked me to look up more info on certain things when our lesson is done. We take our history lesson to the park and read it under the trees while we eat lunch. It's size makes it very manageable to take along. I really think this series is wonderful and should be given more credit.
Britt1 Stars Out Of 5Not ChristainDecember 2, 2020BrittQuality: 5Value: 3Meets Expectations: 1I ordered this and then returned it. It is not written from a christian perspective. I thought it was from reviewing the titles of the chapters it covers abraham and joseph in Egypt but these are strictly from a historical standpoint. The first chapter covers the earliest nomads from an evolutionary stabdpoint.

khs25 Stars Out Of 5So glad we are using this curriculum!September 25, 2019khs2Quality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Such a great book! I am using it with my 1st grader but I think older kids would be able to learn a lot too. He enjoys what he learns and student book has great activities for him to do that go along with what he learned.
1stcorinth4 Stars Out Of 5What I expected !December 14, 20181stcorinthQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 5My 10 year old sons (twins!) and I enjoyed this history book, we both learned lots together! I am a mother of two and actively homeschool my children, and they loved the interactive story perspective. This book is a good purchase for any Christian family teaching history. It includes information of Pagan religions and ancient mythological beliefs, which I think is preferable for any Christian student because they get the opportunity to learn more about the past. For me, this is the ideal text for my children, they had a great time learning history and several characteristics of ancient religions. Upon reading the reviews, I had feared that it might not be friendly for their young minds, but there was no need for such fear. These books broadened their knowledge and appreciation for other religions and their culture. It taught them things that otherwise they would not know, all the while not pushing any inaccurate religious ideals onto them. I think they have grown more of an understanding of our peoples past, and have strengthened their faith in the Lord with understanding! The timelines line up with the story of Adam and Eve, but is not inclusive and gave my sons a perspective from the middle ground which helped them learn. I am so excited to get the next one in the series, as our my sons!
