     Full of colorful artwork and photos as well as black & white illustrations, vocabulary tidbits, maps, and biographical sketches, it is skillfully formatted into an appealing and engaging text. Each of the 28 chapters (i.e. weekly lessons) have text interspersed with Narration Breaks (place to stop and recount orally the information that has been covered) and questions: "Ready to Explore".Each chapter ends with a two-page photo montage (a feature I love) that pertains to the chapter's focus. For instance, there is a collection of Native American dwellings each with short informational captions inAmerica's Story.

    Although Columbus is famous for it, he was not the first person to discover America. The Americas have been "discovered" again and again throughout history. This story takes you through the history of the Americas from pre-history through the 16th century when Europeans were here to stay. ~ Stephanie

    A reprint of the original 1917 edition by H.E. Marshall, this hefty book offers 99 exciting stories from American history, starting with the expeditions of the Vikings and Columbus, and ending with the presidency of Woodrow Wilson. The stories are grouped into seven parts; "Stories of Explorers and Pioneers," "Stories of Virginia," "Stories of New England," "Stories of the Middle and Southern Colonies," "Stories of the French in America," "Stories of the Struggle for Liberty" and "Stories of the United States Under the Constitution." The book is unique in that the first 400 pages or so focus on exploration and the Colonial period, while only the last 200 pages cover the history of the U.S. as its own country. Although there is a lot of content here, the chapters are only several pages in length which make for great supplementary reading or read-alouds. Occasional black-and-white full-page illustrations are included in some chapters. 616 pgs, pb. – Jess

       The Teacher Guide is a combination book. It is part teacher book, with some course instructional information, detailed daily lesson plans, an overview of the activities built into the student worksheets, teaching tips for struggling learners, supply lists, suggestions for special projects, and answers for student worksheets. Information for the teacher (about 10% of the book) includes a section on the importance of narration and words of encouragement from the publisher. The remainder of the book is student worksheets (which are reproducible for your own homeschooling family). These worksheets provide the heart of a student’s journal to accompany the course. Very nicely designed and well-illustrated, there are daily front-and-back worksheets. These are similar but appropriately different for each age level between the two series. The whole TG is three-hole punched, and for the record, there are no tests in either series.

      America’s Story worksheets include Draw-Write pages (journaling lines, space for sketching, copywork), Mini-Project pages (cut & glue projects), Written Narration pages, Timeline pages (cards for each chapter with space for students to create their own timeline), a Special Prayer Book (a cut apart book for writing a weekly prayer for his/her country), and Artist Study (quick introduction to an artist with a variety of related art activities). Mapwork and vocabulary study are also a featured part of these pages.

Some of the authors included are: Benjamin Franklin, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, Mark Twain, Jack London, T.S. Eliot, Langston Hughes, James Baldwin, Alice Walker, and Louise Erdrich (to name just a few). There are a few black-and-white illustrations and some color plates as well.
