Bede's History of ME
Bede's History of Me
Before your kindergartner can begin to study history, she needs to know what it is. Bede's History of Me was written to lay the foundation towards a better understanding of timelines, geography, family, church, holiday history, and more. Designed to be used only once a week, Bede's History of Me makes an ideal exploratory introduction to history.
Bede is a timeline...who strongly resembles a ball of yarn. This lovable character introduces young children to the basics of timelines and history in a fun way. A few of the topics discussed include Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, the history of toys, the history of sports, and more. Bede’s History of Me is just the thing for teaching first-time historians the importance of timelines and how God works in time.

After reading the description of this book I was SO excited to order it but it hasn’t lived up to my expectations. The lessons feel discombobulated and don’t flow from one to another. The pictures aren’t very enticing for young children. My 4 and 5 year old always groan when I say it’s time to do our lesson from this book.
We are really enjoying all this book has to offer but we have been jumping around out of order to cover certain topics in-conjunction with holidays and what not. We love everything about the book from how it explains a topic to how it engages our little one. It has helped us explain some very complex topics in simply to understand ways.
I like how easy this is to grab and use with little prep! It also keeps my daughters attention & it’s been great so far for our K year!
Bedes History of Me is fun and simple. It takes us only fifteen minutes a week, and it's just a bit of reading with a fun activity. We have lots of other school, so I like that this is not too time consuming right now. I also have Bedes History of us, which I plan to do next year.
This book started out great. It did an excellent job explaining what history is and involved cute activities. However, my son quickly became bored with many of the topics.
