This one's the third of the four volume series, subtitled "History for the Classical Child". It covers world history from around 1600 to the year 1850. Like its predecessors, Ancient Times and The Middle Ages, it presents history as if telling a story. It also bothers to inform the reader what was happening outside of European lands during those years. Check it out.--J.

The format of The Story of the World is timeline. An easy progression based on events happening sequentially. Very engaging format. Appropriate for grades 2-8. Even I am learning as I go through the book and lessons (the workbook is awesome, too!) with my children. Nice alternative to the 'hunt and peck' social studies and history courses offered in most schools and in many other curriculum.

My 9 year old son loves this series. It's an excellent overview of history and easy to understand for his age. Sometimes history can be overwhelming, but learning through reading this series has made it exciting, interesting and fun!

This book is very good both for young and older audiences. It would probably make a good read-aloud, but I've never tried that. I must admit that the previous two books in the series were better.
