    Highly Recommend - History taught classicaly

    The format of The Story of the World is timeline. An easy progression based on events happening sequentially. Very engaging format. Appropriate for grades 2-8. Even I am learning as I go through the book and lessons (the workbook is awesome, too!) with my children. Nice alternative to the 'hunt and peck' social studies and history courses offered in most schools and in many other curriculum.

    Highly Recommended

    My 9 year old son loves this series. It's an excellent overview of history and easy to understand for his age. Sometimes history can be overwhelming, but learning through reading this series has made it exciting, interesting and fun!

    A homeschool kid's opinion

    This book is very good both for young and older audiences. It would probably make a good read-aloud, but I've never tried that. I must admit that the previous two books in the series were better.
