Timberdoodle's review Learn more
Do you have a child who hates reading, especially reading about history? If so, your solution may be to read the books out loud to your children - a wonderful answer, though a bit taxing on you as the parent. What teaching parent is looking for more work?

Here is an even better solution that will free you from reading aloud while still giving your children access to Henty's excellent literature. Each lively, professionally-recorded, and unabridged edition includes a single MP3-format CD for up to 13 HOURS of listening time PER BOOK. These books are professionally read by Jim Hodges. Now you can have your children listen and learn while you tackle your never-ending “to-do” list.

More about Henty's historical novels…

If you also are looking for history books for your older children, books that will be historically accurate and will stretch their minds, but will not compromise your family's standard of decency, you will be very pleased to learn about the works of G.A. Henty (1832-1902).

Known as "The Boy's Own Historian," his historical epics are profoundly factual stories that highlight some of the greatest people and moments in history. Written to satisfy young men's insatiable hunger for adventure, Henty's stories can be equally riveting for your daughters.

Each story revolves around a fictional boy hero who is diligent, courageous, and intelligent. Where needed, these boys fought wars, sailed seas, prospected for gold, and aided in the overthrow of evil empires. Through Henty's heroes, your child will meet historically strategic leaders and acquire an awareness of the cultures of various European and pagan civilizations.

Note: in accordance with the period in which they were written, there are a couple of books where an occasional derogatory term is used.

good intro to ancient Egypt May 31, 2012
Reviewer: blessed4xover  
This was our first "in depth" study of ancient Egypt, as well as our first Henty to listen to together as a family. My kids were late elementary/ jr. high age at the time. So many resource to study ancient Egypt present the idolatry and worship of false gods as a positive or, at best, neutral thing. Being written from a western, Judeo-Christian perspective, this book does not say it is "wrong", because Henty is true to the historical setting, and an ancient Egyptian would not have come to that conclusion. However, the whole storyline deals with the sad results of worshiping things which do not deserve worship (namely, a cat, in this story). Henty cleverly weaves the character of Moses into the story, which gives him an opportunity to present a monotheistic perspective, and provides more information on the process of embalming than you ever thought you wanted to know. (Feel free to skip that chapter. My son loved it, though. I found it interesting in a "shivery" sort of way. Kind of yucky.) And, true to himself, Henty's hero has to say, "That will do capitally!" at least once!
