I enjoyed this book so much. It's written towards children. I listened to it on audio. A few times in the car my kids listened with me and really liked it. It's gives an account of human history, not only with facts but story. I learned things. I especially liked how the Bible was treated, as a historical narrative for the Jewish people through Abraham, and later on Jesus Christ. I loved the narrative of Roman history the most.

The only thing I did to like is the use of the term BCE/CE over the

(Review from Mom): My son is a 4YO who is interested in ancient history (and currently addicted to Percy Jackson books), so this review may not apply to you. He comes from a family of educators so his favorite game is "school", and older children might enjoy directed hands-on projects more.

He LOVES the main SOTW book! He loves taking the tests from the test book. This rating for the activity book is his choice and I agree with it. For his personality.

If your child is a hands-on learner who is in

öncelikli olarak kitabın sunuluş şekli "herkes için tarih" olmakla birlikte, amacına fazlasıyla hizmet ediyor. daha öncesinde aynı yazarın antik dünya tarihi hakkında kitabına başlamıştım ancak ağır geldiğinden, sıkıldığımdan dolayı yarıda bırakmıştım. daha sonrasında bu seriyi almadan önce çok düşündüm, yine aynı şekilde mi yazılmıştır acaba diye ancak yapılan yorumları görünce bir şans vermek istedim. iyi ki de vermişim o şansı..

bol bol boş zamanınız varsa 1 günde bile bitirilebilecek bir kit

11/09/09: Note to my Catholic buddies. The author is Protestant. In my opinion, she does an excellent job presenting a balanced, respectful look at history. I do not think she purposefully ignores or slants Catholic contributions to history, but we are not exactly on her radar either. For example, you'll learn about Attila attacking the Romans and the emperor's goofy sister, Honoria's "proposal" to Attila. You'll learn about Attila's providential, fatal nosebleed. You will NOT see mention of Pop ...more

This activity guide goes with the textbook that accompanies it. It is tops for the activities and supplemental literature suggestions. The textbook is a valuable accompaniment for this activity guide because it is difficult to find literature for many of the ancient civilizations, let alone for children!

If your children enjoy hands-on activities, this guide is a must! It is designed as a year-long curriculum although it took us longer because we inserted some other works into the middle of it.

A great resource complete with book lists, narration helps, crafts, projects and maps, and many, many more supplements. This book is used with the Story of the World Volume 1 book which contains stories and histories of ancient civilizations.

probably more valuable than the text. It really does have great activity ideas, along with questions and coloring pages, etc.
