    Our kids have done every one of these so far and they both have loved them! Their favorite part is getting to make the timeline. It teaches them about history in a way that makes them love it!

    Mystery of History, Volume 3

    I love this book so much. I love the way it is written and how easily it is understood. I like looking at the paintings and illustrations of all the people in the book and just how fancy everything was back then. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

    It's incredibly flexible.

    You can use it as a springboard for older students, as is. I've used it for help with writing and studying skills--picking out important facts, writing a summary as well as imprinting an overall history timeline with my kids. It works with all types of learners as well with their variety of tasks to complete

    I would recommend to all homeschool families!!

    The Mystery of History series has made teaching history in our homeschool very simple. The material including quizzes, exercises and semester tests is all in one book (NOTE: This is true in Volumes 1 and 2, Volume 3 is divided into two books, the Reader and the Activity). There are great activities for younger, middle and older students. I can pick which ones fit my child's needs and interests at the time. The bibliography includes films as well as books. This makes it easy for me to go to the library to find the movies mentioned. Christ is the focus of the text and many events in Christian history are covered but other cultures who did not have Christianity at the time are covered also. I would recommend all volumes of Mystery of History to all homeschool families.
