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.

My grade 1 daughter and I bought this book as a suggestion from a friend. We homeschool and wanted to add a bit of history to our curriculum. This book turned out to be one of our best purchases all year! My daughter loved every chapter and begged for me to read "just one more chapter" every time. We followed up each chapter with a craft, activity, or coloring page from the accompanying workbook. This book is so full of information that I was learning a lot too. My husband and mother have both asked if they can borrow the book to read as they both found it interesting too! All the information is written as a big long storyline to connect the different parts of history and it is written with enough detail to keep all readers engaged, and written with simple enough language that everyone understands,too! I can not give this book any less than 5 stars. It is worth its weight in gold. Not only will we be re-reading this book, but we will be ordering the next in the series. This is the best history book I've ever read.

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.

Rats. I purchased this book because I want to read it to my kids. Unfortunately, it was very difficult to read and did not really introduce what was going on in the world at the time of the story setting. I found myself having to stop reading all the time and go back and explain a bunch of stuff just to be able to continue with the chapter. I put this book aside in favour of some different material to teach world history.

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.

Very good book. We bough the audio CDs as well and my kids, 3 and 9, both love listening to the book. We then use the hard copy to help us do the activities in the activity book. There is something for both the kids to do and I would recommend this series. I am using it as part of my homeschooling curriculum and it has made our Social Studies more educational and fun, as well as broadening the subject to cover the world, instead of just Canada.
