Our Review

This book has been a favorite of my kids for years! The book contains crisp, colorful pages. I purchased the hard cover version and despite almost daily use, the book remains in excellent shape. I fully expect it to last through all of my kids. For school, we mostly used the book in conjunction with The Story of the World, Volume 1: Ancient Times, but you could easily use this book by itself to create your own free/low cost history curriculum.

*Sonlight also uses this book for their level 6 and 7 programs.

NOTICE: This book does include evolution and does cover some religions.
