Timberdoodle's review
Holes in Your History?
What is the first thing many parents say after reading a few chapters of The Story of the World? "Help! I don't know this stuff." Don't panic. First of all, you are in good company; most of us have an abysmal history education. Second, just learning along with your child is absolutely acceptable. But if you or your older child find yourselves bothered by significant holes in your understanding of history, then consider the latest title from the author of The Story of the World.

A Masterful Retelling of Ancient History
Written in a friendly and highly readable manner, The History of the Ancient World is at once engaging and enlightening. Maps and timelines help you grasp the whens and wheres of history, while the stories cement who, what, and why. Not only will you walk away with a big picture of history, but you will also develop a feel for the people of each culture.

Note to our more conservative customers: This book, though authored by a Christian, is written from a history scholar's perspective, not that of a theologian. In other words she gives the Bible a fair hearing, but places it alongside any other historical document, without distinction. Read The History of the Ancient World with that in mind and you will find that there is a wealth of information in this volume about the peoples, nations, cultures, and wars of the Bible.

I read it after the school day is over! January 14, 2013
Reviewer: Ang  
I started reading this to see if it would be a good fit for a friend's daughter and ended up reading it for myself. It is well-written and extremely enjoyable. I had to call my husband and tell him that my history book actually referenced the Borg! It takes a subject that can be dry and relates it to life as we know it. I learned an immense amount and have referenced it with my elementary children on many occasions.
