About The Story of the World series:
Easy-to-Implement, Captivating Chronological History
This captivating read-aloud series will introduce your children to the marvelous history of the world presented chronologically from the beginning of time. Each volume of The Story of the World includes the details of battles, kingdoms, cultures, and customs from every continent and major people group woven together into a story that children will find mesmerizing. With short chapters, many less than seven pages, The Story of the World presents history in small, easily-digestible chunks. Of particular appeal to children will be the occasional story about a hypothetical child in the culture of that time and fictional stories that were popular during that time.
The Best History Books Available for 1st-6th Grade!
The Story of the World is intended to be a read-aloud program for first through sixth grade, but it can work equally well as independent reading by an older child. Don't restrict your scope of history to just American history. These are what we consider the best world history books for this age group. If you have ever found history to be dull and humdrum, these books might just change that opinion!
Combine with the Hands-On Student Activity Book for a Full Curriculum
The Curriculum/Activity Guide offers parents and teachers a complete history curriculum for use with The Story of the World. In addition to extensive reading lists and cross-references to the most common illustrated encyclopedias, the Activity Book contains comprehension questions, sample narrations, maps, coloring pages, and activities for each chapter in The Story of the World. Children and parent-teachers love the activities, which range from coloring pages and games to mummifying a chicken!
Attempts to Include All Significant Historical and Cultural Accounts
Note: Please do not consider this series a Providential view of history which recognizes God's hand in history. It is first and foremost a history text that attempts to include all significant historical and cultural accounts. If you are a conservative Christian, you may want to opt out of a couple of activities. And where you find details with Biblical references that are inaccurate because of sparseness, use this opportunity to interject more of His story. Bible history is best taught with a Bible so we encourage your family to read through the Bible every year. These are very minor issues that are easily addressed and shouldn't keep you from this overall excellent program.

My son enjoys listening to the audiobook but doesn’t enjoy the activities.
Love this book and can't wait to get the next one in the series. I love all the project options so that we can really dive in but on weeks that we don't have the time we can just do the questions and map work. I also like that the teacher book and student book are in 1 book.
This is a super fun step by step activity book to go hand and hand with your history lesson!
This curriculum was the perfect for our family. We enjoy learning history through stories. My sons love the activity book maps. It helps them visualize the area better and what was going on at the time. I love that it is written as an easy to read story, it also has optional ready books and a hands on activity to do relating to the story.
This workbook is what really brings the story book to life. I love that they have other reading resources listed, comprehension questions, as well as activities, crafts, and worksheets to go along with each story. Such an amazing resource and so versatile for many different age ranges.
