Review

“This may well be the best multi-age read aloud narrative of world history yet to have been written.”

“This works wonderfully as a family read-aloud... There's plenty of dialogue and enough detail to keep adults interested.”

Format: Audio CD
This is a marvelous series that is engaging and informative. As most public school systems teach very little history these can give a child or an adult a wonderful overview of the world. By using engaging stories about individual characters the tone is never pendantic and keeps the listener wanting more. My children listen to these repeatedly and I am thrilled with the series.

Susan Wise Bauer did an excellent job of telling the history of the world. The book is divided into short chapters (usually around 5 pages) that flow well and engage the reader. The language is very accessible for kids, making it easy for them to get interested in the story. As a teacher and parent, I definitely recommend this book to other teachers, homeschoolers, parents, and anyone who would enjoy learning more about the world. I plan on buying the other three books along with the workbooks.

We are using this for homeschool. I find that it, in combination with the activity book, makes for a wonderfully engaging ancient history course. Even I look forward to it every week -- history not being my strong point, I am learning from it too. It's a fun and accessible way for kids to learn about history. I would recommend it for those just wanting to cover the topic with their kids outside of school as well.

We are about 1/3 of the way through this book (my gr2 homeschooler and myself) and while I really very much enjoy the way the material is presented as well as the author's prose, I am having some issues with the way the biblical portions are presented. Maybe I'm cynical but I read it as being introduced differently than "ancient greek mythology" or "legends" and instead it's presented as ...well, truth. And I think I'm trying not to read into that too much but I'm pretty sure that was intentional. ANYWAY I have read ahead in chapters and introduced the biblical sections in my own way instead and we're okay. I also have the activity book which has been lots of fun.

Unbelievably fabulous series of books -- so fun to read with my kids. Lots of interesting side trips to You Tube to reinforce the various lessons . The kids don't learn world history at their elementary school, so this really fills in the gaps. I started on book one when my kids were 8 and 10. We read probably 5 minuted a day, 3 times a week. At this pace, it takes a year to finish a book. We're just finishing up book 2.
