    About The Story of the World series:

    Easy-to-Implement, Captivating Chronological History
    This captivating read-aloud series will introduce your children to the marvelous history of the world presented chronologically from the beginning of time. Each volume of The Story of the World includes the details of battles, kingdoms, cultures, and customs from every continent and major people group woven together into a story that children will find mesmerizing. With short chapters, many less than seven pages, The Story of the World presents history in small, easily-digestible chunks. Of particular appeal to children will be the occasional story about a hypothetical child in the culture of that time and fictional stories that were popular during that time.

    The Best History Books Available for 1st-6th Grade!
    The Story of the World is intended to be a read-aloud program for first through sixth grade, but it can work equally well as independent reading by an older child. Don't restrict your scope of history to just American history. These are what we consider the best world history books for this age group. If you have ever found history to be dull and humdrum, these books might just change that opinion!

    Combine with the Hands-On Student Activity Book for a Full Curriculum
    The Curriculum/Activity Guide offers parents and teachers a complete history curriculum for use with The Story of the World. In addition to extensive reading lists and cross-references to the most common illustrated encyclopedias, the Activity Book contains comprehension questions, sample narrations, maps, coloring pages, and activities for each chapter in The Story of the World. Children and parent-teachers love the activities, which range from coloring pages and games to mummifying a chicken!

    Attempts to Include All Significant Historical and Cultural Accounts
    Note: Please do not consider this series a Providential view of history which recognizes God's hand in history. It is first and foremost a history text that attempts to include all significant historical and cultural accounts. If you are a conservative Christian, you may want to opt out of a couple of activities. And where you find details with Biblical references that are inaccurate because of sparseness, use this opportunity to interject more of His story. Bible history is best taught with a Bible so we encourage your family to read through the Bible every year. These are very minor issues that are easily addressed and shouldn't keep you from this overall excellent program.

    So fun and thorough. July 20, 2014
    Reviewer: Kelly W.  
    I just spend the afternoon looking through this book. I purchased it a few years ago and it sat on the shelf until this year. I can't believe how fun this book is. It has all kinds of activities that correlate to the Story of the World novel. Half of the book is instructional and half of the book is made up of materials that you can copy to use with your children including maps, word searches, games, etc. It will really bring history alive to your children. I can't wait to use this with my kids. I know that they are going to love it.

    a good variety of activities April 25, 2014
    Reviewer: Elizabeth S.  
    I was impressed with the number and variety of activities in this book. All activities are relevant to the text, and can help a child remember/use what they have heard/read. Activities range from coloring pages to mummifying a chicken (yes, really) so there is a great variety to choose from to fit your needs for each lesson. The only down side is that you must either copy many of the consumable pages or attempt to use them out of a book that doesn't lie flat. (Consumable pages can also be purchased loose-leaf from the publisher for a moderate fee.)

    So Fun!!! April 22, 2014
    Reviewer: Johanna S.  
    Homeschooling can be daunting especially when you're new at it! Finding amazing curriculum that guides you step by step is the way to go! The Story of the World Volume 1 Activity Book shows you exactly what to do from the easiest activities to the more involved activities. The best part is you can choose how involved you want to be with each activity. Even if you choose the easiest one the student is still learning a lot! I love this book and so do my kids!!!! Thanks Timberdoodle for yet another fun book to teach to my kids!!!
