    I cannot say enough lovely things about this curriculum. I appreciated the introduction and the care taken in explaining the importance of studying ancient history. Not all students have an appreciation for this and Angela O'Dell did a fantastic job laying a foundation for the lessons.

    We loved that the Bible is the ultimate guide in using this curriculum, leading students back to God continually. We're incredibly excited that we are given a full, accurate account of the world's beginning and a better understanding of God's plan for His people.

    We're quite pleased with the amount, and diversity, of activities included in the curriculum. The World's Story far exceeds anything we could have anticipated. Families can expect to explore art studies, artifacts study, map work, copy work, narration, sketching, hands-on activities, timelines, "Dig Deeper" selections which include additional research prompts, and so much more!

    And the best part? Everything is included in the set. No more buying of additional quiz/test books or answer keys. This set is all we needed to start our adventure in history.

    My review may be a little non-traditional, because I am going to review The World's Story I for middle school and High School. I've been searching for a history curriculum where my children would connect to the material. Most material geared towards the upper grades becomes simply dates, faces, and facts and my ninth grader began dreading the hours of reading and associated writing activities that accompanied his history program. While he was doing well comprehending, it was clear that my once history loving kid was burned out from a heavy reading and writing load. On a whim, I came to Master Books looking for supplemental material and stumbled on this beautiful text. After looking at the samples, I immediately asked to be a reviewer so I could look over the entire book, and from the moment I opened the book I could not stop reading. I'm going to separate my review into two parts: The Student Text and the Teacher Manual.

    Student Text:

    - Beautiful pictures and artwork throughout that draw you into the material

    - Easy, conversational style text

    - Pauses for narration

    - Connect areas in purple that help the student make connections to bigger ideas

    - Apologetics in Archaeology quickly became my favorite part of the text

    - Maps throughout with analyze questions for further thought

    The student text, in some ways, is a traditional textbook style and will feel familiar to those of us that grew up in a traditional school setting. What isn't traditional is how deeply rooted the material is in the Bible and its teachings, the rich language, and the feel that the student text is a launching pad for further study. I truly felt at the end of each short chapter that I wanted to find out more either about the artwork, pictures, or information itself. As a "spine" it is thorough without being dry. My high school son read through the text and asked if there was an archaeology program to accompany it, and there is! A history book that encourages a student to dig deeper on their own receives the highest praise from this mom! I bought each student their own text because when it came in they were fighting over who would get to look at it first.

    Teacher Manual:

    - Each day is laid out into manageable chunks

    - Suggested grading rubric for writings

    - Projects and crafts for extension activities that are not just busy work

    - Digging Deeper/Further readings that can easily be expanded for older grades

    -Traditional worksheet style work for review and chapter analysis to include vocabulary and narration spaces

    - Can be used with students of all ages, abilities, and learning styles

    I bought a teacher manual for each of my children, because it can easily be used as a student record for each them as well as the traditional workbook that accompanies many Charlotte Mason style programs. The teacher manual really gives the parent the opportunity to customize the program for each student and to meet their educational needs. This means I can use this with all 3 of my children at the same time, which saves me time, money, and my sanity. I found that buying each student a teacher manual would be mor economical than printing the pages and placing them in a separate binder or getting the text bound.

    In short, while I was allowed to review for Master Books, I chose to buy these books because I wanted to have them in my hands! I am so glad that I did, because they are exactly what I was looking for.
