I am actually going through this a second time with my younger son. We use this as our history for our homeschool. I've learned more going through all 4 parts of this series than I ever did before in all my years of history. It starts at the beginning. It's not based on the theory of evolution. She also recommends several supplemental books to use with each chapter to get additional material. Not to mention other books to read, maps, and activities to reinforce what's taught! It's a fantastic series for any homeschool!!

I now have the entire series for my 9 year old son and he has "devoured" each and every one. I started off reading a chapter a day but he wanted far more and begged to read on his own. A wonderful way to learn history and my friends are excited to find these books an informative, historical and interesting/educational source also.

I've been reading "The Story of the World" to my 6-year-old for the past several weeks. While the book is comprehensive in its' overall time line, we've been picking and choosing stories based on what interests us on a given day. Last night we chose three stories summarizing the life and exploits of Alexander the Great. Last week we read about the adventures of Odysseus. Before that, it was the Remus and Romulus myth surrounding the beginnings of Rome. And don't forget the appropriately detailed overview of the lives of gladiators. I think next up will be Early America civilizations... Each chapter is short and focused, and written well for K-3rd grade. The chapters are written as stories or narratives which make the learning perfectly consumable by the target age ranges. Not only have I found my son making real world connections and references to items we've read in the book, but I've also learned a few new things myself. This is highly recommended.

This book is well done, the sections are short and very interesting. My kids, 9 and 7, like the stories and listen intently. Makes learning history more fun!

We've been reading from this text nightly. The chapters are short, the verbiage is geared towards younger children, etc. We are enjoying the book and my 5 yr old really gets it, asking questions, and even using sentences like 'that's like the euphrates river we read about.'.

It presents history as a story. It contains 42 chapter of less than 7 pages. it can be read independently by a 4th grader or used as a read aloud history book for 1st through 3rd grade. we will definately be getting the activity guide when it becomes available
