Timberdoodle's Review
World History Detective
World History Detective rises above the simple read-and-regurgitate workbook questions by asking your student to discern which statements in a set of four are fact and which are opinion; or which of these phrases can be inferred from the lesson, and which sentences best support that theory. World History Detective is written for the young teen student who is looking for a no-frills, independent approach to learning ancient and medieval history. No mess, no preparation, and no stress, just open the book and suss out the varied reasons why an event happened as it did. With today’s raging episodes of fake news, World History Detective’s types of questions will help your child to grasp that those telling the story always interpret history.

Note: World History Detective includes occasional evolutionary assumptions, particularly in the few lessons pertaining to prehistory. Families will likely appreciate the non-dogmatic attitude in which these statements are presented, but as always, will want to be prepared to dialogue with their students about these issues.

Love how each section is not to long. My daughter is able to do this independently.

Great book!

This is an amazing and easy to use book! We had tried a handful of history curriculums before finding this one and they weren't working for son. He loves this book and no longer fights me on it!

History and reading comprehension

I really like this book. I like the format. I really wish they had this book for American history for middle schoolers.

World History Detective

My kiddos loves this book and the other detective books that Timberdoddle providers in their grade curriculum. Its a quick read and engages the student in history with fun critical thinking.

Great supplement to Story of the World

I am reading aloud Story of the World ancient times to my youngest, and we use this for my older son to dive deeper into the content he hears from SOTW. They correlate nicely.
