focuses on God as the center of history.
Utilizing living books, this creative approach to history integrates elements of both Charlotte Mason and Classical methods.
Short and very informal introductions are written directly to the student and open up each topic with a distinctly Christian perspective. Your students will see that they are next in the chain of God's work on earth! Some of the great questions of life are probed such as why God allowed suffering to occur. Suggestions for activities or writing exercises are often included as well. The booklists follow, with selected annotations on what pages or sections to read and appropriate grade levels for each entry. Incredibly flexible in nature, families can proceed at the pace that's best for their students as they select spines, biographies, in-print books, and out-of-print classics from the extensive lists.
What fun! An incredibly rich smorgasbord of books has been written for children on the topic of American history! And youngsters are so anxious to meet Pocahontas and the Pilgrims, cowboys and Indians, George Washington and Daniel Boone! Yet, children of this age seek the meaning of American history too.
Usually, they are just presented with a few famous people and events, but TruthQuest History includes commentary which subtly presents the thread of God's hand in American history in a much deeper and broader exploration of out past.
Proceeding chronologically, entries include lists for The First Settlement, Sir Walter Raleigh, King Philip's War, French & Indian War, War of Independence, American Art, George Washington, Patrick Henry, Benjamin Rush, and other relevant unit-study topics.
