About the Story of the World Series:
This captivating read-aloud series will introduce your children to the world's great history 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. It is woven together into stories 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 popular fictional stories.
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 dull and humdrum, these books might just change that opinion!
The Activity Book 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, ranging from coloring pages and games to mummifying a chicken!
Note: Please do not consider this series a Providential view of history that recognizes God's hand in history. It is 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. These minor issues are easily addressed and shouldn't keep you from this excellent program.
Completing 3 chapters every 2 weeks is a realistic pace that will get you through the book in just under 36 weeks.
