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.

I really like that it has the reading, questions and hands on activities to ensure they absorb the content.
We use this activity book every day that we study history. I like the review questions and the additional book recommendations, and my girls love the coloring pages and the craft projects. Their current favorite is the Theodora paper dolls!
The map work is wonderful! Consistently gets my daughter engaged that the events are actually taking place somewhere.
The activities in this book that go along with the other one are so fun. We love that there are hands on projects and even recipes to make history that much more fun!
I wish I had found this curriculum earlier! History isn't my strongest subject, I always hated it in school because it was dry, learning timelines and names... So having to teach it to my own kids was like pulling teeth!
This curriculum however, makes it so intriguing, the activity book makes it FUN! I actually enjoy learning history along with my kids in this one!
