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.

Brittany, Thank you for your review! We appreciate your insight on how portions of this book could be delicate for families not formed traditionally. As a Timberdoodle, daughter, I, along with my four siblings, grew up in a traditional household. But I recently adopted twin 5-year-old boys as a single mom, and so I too am walking this complicated road. This year the boys are in Kindergarten, and we are working our way through Bede too! One thing we like in particular about this book is that although it does cover family trees and timelines, it does not do so extensively. For my boys, on the page where their parent's names are to be written, we wrote both their first parents and myself, utilizing this page as a springboard to talk about them and their past/history. The family tree page we have skipped for right now until I can find out if I can dig up that information or decide to use only my/their adoptive tree, or talk about what we do and don't know. So again, as a springboard, which I am reading, is vital for kids from this background that they know it is safe to talk about all this because we parents make the opportunities to bring it up ourselves. I know every family and what they or their kids may know or not know is different. So I also appreciate that there are only a couple pages related to this, which can easily be skipped if it is too triggering of a topic for now. I hope this helps! I am glad to be on this journey with all of you fellow out of the ordinary parents! -- Hope for the Timberdoodle Team
My Least Favorite Book From Timberdoodle
Elizabeth, Thank you for your thorough and specific review! We are sure that other families will appreciate hearing of your experience and perspective. Ultimately, I think it boils down to a difference in worldview. While we would wholeheartedly agree that Jesus is love, we also do not shy from the truth that He is a righteous God who shows wrath against the corruption of this world and that this world is a world wrought by sin and brokenness. That said, it does not bother me that the historically accurate representation of Jesus' arrest is characterized by drawing a sword. Or a whip depicted to symbolize the story, 'The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple, he found those who were selling oxen and sheep and pigeons, and the money-changers sitting there. And making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen. And he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables.' - John 2. I will say that Boniface's story could have been expounded on, but as is typical with dealing with this young age, some details had to be cut to allow for short attention spans and young listeners. We would encourage families to use these concepts in this and other books as a springboard for a discussion with their children and to go more into depth where time and circumstances allow; this is the beauty of homeschooling! :) Thank you again! I hope it helps to hear a bit about where we are coming from in this product selection. --Hope for the Timberdoodle team
