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.

This book had some good topics and activities, but also had some pages that were just not very interesting or engaging on their own. We had to supplement it by looking up pictures or videos or music clips online to make it more engaging. I also had trouble with the disjointed way the topics were arranged. Overall, the flow of the book just didn't make much sense.
This really wasn't something we were too interested in.
We have not gotten very far in this book yet, but so far my kids have really enjoyed learning about timelines and doing the activities in the book. We look forward to getting to the holiday, etc.
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.
