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

This is a wonderful introduction into the history of the world. I am currently using this with my third child and all three kids consider history to be one of their favorite subjects.

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.

Utilizing your local library with this curriculum makes it a fantastic program. You have to work fairly quickly through the material to finish the book, so feel free to drop some of the chapters so you can move at a comfortable pace for your child.

I really like that this curriculum goes in chronological order. I also like how the stories are written so it is interesting to children.
