    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.

    Really Like the Maps July 27, 2016
    Reviewer: Alison from Show Low, AZ United States  
    The maps were extremely helpful to solidify what was being read but the coloring pages and other activities were not for us at all. The example narratives proved useful for when we were reviewing what we had read the previous week. I really did not like how all of the activity and parent pages were in the same book in front of the student pages.

    Perfect for youngsters! May 31, 2012
    Reviewer: Christine  
    I bought 3 Volumes of Story the World. The lessons are the perfect length for young kids. Ours started these at age 6 and she is now 8. You can pick and choose from the activities, there are plenty of different kinds to choose from. From baking with recipes to making clay and many more in each lesson. You really get a rounded education for your younger kids. Love them all!

    I was very impressed by how much we all learned July 23, 2009
    Reviewer: Heather C. from Williams Bay, WI  
    The year that we used Story of the World 1 and the corresponding Activity Guide was our best out of our ten years of homeschooling (so far!).  The children learned more about world history than I had learned in all of my own public school years, and, due to the activities and resources in the Activity Guide, found it to be great fun.  Four years later, my upper elementary and middle school children want to go back and do the maps, coloring sheets, and projects from SOTW 1 again, as they'd enjoyed it so much the first time.  I was very impressed by how much we all learned from SOTW1 and by what a pleasure it was to teach.  However, using SOTW 1 takes more work on the part of the teacher than workbook based or pre-packaged curricula.  The Activity Guide makes recommendations of resource books to be purchased or checked out from the library and art projects to be done.  Planning ahead to acquire the supplemental books and project materials is necessary for success with this program.  Interacting with the students in narration and discussion is also necessary, so this is not a good program for a hands-off parent/teacher.  This program should work well for a family of any size. Older students can read about related topics in more depth from other resources while the younger ones read the SOTW text, then the whole family can enjoy the hands-on activities together.  The Activity Guide gives resource ideas for a variety of levels and abilities, which makes this easier.  I'd gladly use this program again!

    Helpful for children on the autism spectrum!! July 23, 2009
    Reviewer: Carol S. from Dallas, TX  
    I want to let families with children on the autism spectrum know that this has been a helpful history curriculum for us. We have a 15-year old who has Aspegers and severe learning differences. The STORY aspect of the program (plus something to color while he listens) has been very helpful to him. We use the audio CDs with every lesson. Even though the grade level is below his reading comprehension level, we find that he RETAINS more of what he learns with this program because it is told in story form. That is more important than using boring higher level materials.

    loved it July 23, 2009
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Brewster, WA United States  
    We used this with a kindergartener and a second grader.  We loved the stories and we used the activity book too.  The mapwork really helped them to see where things were happening.  We checked out a lot of the suggested books from the library, especially if they were interested in a topic.  The pages to color helped them to listen to the story.  We added in making a big timeline and we posted the pages they colored on the timeline.  My only frustration with it was that it did not include biblical events enough and tie them in, so we added this in ourselves, inserting Bible readings between chapters where appropriate.  We have used volumes 1 and 2 and will use volumes 3 and 4 in the next few years.
