    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.

    Our favorite household subject September 12, 2016
    Reviewer: Katy S from Great Plains  
    Hands down this has become our family's favorite thing to learn together. I feel like a different person having finally been able to put stories to the names of the ancients, like Hammurabi, Sargon, Confucious, Julius Caesar--the list goes on. My kids are captivated. The stories are so well told and the activity book reinforces the lessons. True, a few of the activities are silly for people with no artistic skill (I laughed out loud when it told us to simply mold paper mache into the shape of famous figures) but who cares? Pick those that are best for your family (there are always multiple options).  Thanks for including this in your 1st grade curriculum!

    The Story of the World Activity Book September 12, 2016
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from WA United States  
    Such a great resource! I tore out all the pages and put them in two binders, one for my student and one for me. I even added sheet protectors and added the Famous Figures at the right chapter so there was no guess work! This was my student's favorite subject for first grade!

    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.
