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 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.

I used Story of the World as an asset to Classical Conversations (CC) and it was an amazing 'meat' to the pegs memorized with CC. As I would read aloud to my daughter she was able to connect the dots in history to the timeline, history and geography she was memorizing. Very well written and engaging for the child.
