Back Cover Copy

“The title really says it all – this is a delightful book of stories. Ms. Bauer’s writing style is engaging and easy to read, and she includes details that are intrinsically interesting to children. Some stories are fables from around the world and some are fictional stories that illustrate life in that time in history. The details of real battles, kingdoms, cultures, and customs weave together a story worth telling over and over.”– The Old Schoolhouse Magazine

It is a great curriculum to reinforce classical history. It may be used as a stand-alone curriculum or we used it in conjuction with our Classical Conversations history.

I have actually used this program for 4 years, using vol 1-4 with my children starting in 1st grade. I have used it at the same time with another child for 2 years in grades 1-2. I only could choose one grade level and one learning style. I feel it offers enough ways to engage learners of all types. It includes plenty of hands on activities for my kinesthetic learner, as well as coloring sheets to keep her hands active while she listens to the stories. It includes book lists for my visual learner. She reads tons of extra books on her own to continue her learning of the topic. And I read it aloud which covers auditory learners. By using multiples modalities it strengthens their weakest areas by providing practice, while engaging them using their strongest modalities.

I like that it provides a comprehensive, chronological study of history which can be used for a variety of ages. There are plenty of suggestions for ways to engage all different kinds of learners in the activity book. And there are very quick, easy projects as well as some which require more time and effort. I love that I seem to be learning so much right along with my children as well.

The readability of the history text is wonderful. Each section in the chapters was the right amount of time for my first grader's attention span. My daughter loved the fictional characters that existed to describe daily life tasks in each chapter. The supplements of hands-on activity suggestions, big projects, and field trips was extensive. We are looking forward to using all of Susan Wise Bauer's units.
