    This volume covers the history of the world, from the beginning through modern times (into the 21st century). While not an in-depth view, it covers all time periods and shows readers what was happening in all regions of the world. All events of note are included with brief write-ups and lots of photographs, paintings, and pictures. The text is very readable, and every page is eye-catching with full color examples of tools, weapons, historical sites, and more. Timelines are included showing events from around the world happening at concurrent times. Republished by My Father's World (with permission of DK), the first two chapters, Introduction to Human History (570MYA-40,000) and Early People (40,000-5000BC), have been removed to make it more Christian-friendly. Following chapters cover the First Civilizations (5000-1200BC), Traders and Warriors (1200-500BC), Growth of Empires (500BC-AD1), Decline of the Ancient World (1-400), Religious Worlds (400-800), New Nations (800-1000), Monks and Invaders (1000-1200), Conquest and Plague (1200-1400), Expansion of Knowledge (1400-1500), Great Rulers (1500-1600), Commerce and Colonies (1600-1700), Age of Inquiry (1700-1750), Age of Revolution (1750-1800), Independence and Industry (1800-1850), Rise of Nationalism (1850-1900), World Goes to War (1900-1919), Peace and War (1919-1946), and One World (1946-2000s). Christianity is introduced with major events like the Exodus, Christ's crucifixion and such being discussed (although usually introduced as stories with no historical evidence). Overall, this is a good look at the entire world as it has grown and changed from ancient times until today, full of fascinating facts waiting to be discovered. ~ Megan

    V.M. Hillyer, the first headmaster of Calvert School, spent many of his school years studying only American history. Believing that studying world history would broaden children's horizons and give them a better understanding of the world and history in general, he set about to write an understandable and comprehensive world history children could enjoy. A Child's History of the World functions to familiarize young children with some of the countless historical events and people of significance while reading like a good story. While many of the topics touched upon may not be the most important in overall world history, they are the most important that can be understood by a child. The subjects are covered in chronological order, from the beginning of the world (presented from a vague but secular viewpoint) through the end of the Cold War. This gives the child a linear view of world history that allows for the details to be filled in later. A Child's History of the World is a basal (basic, fundamental) reader and is not intended to be used as a supplementary reader. Recently revised, copyright 1997. 440 pgs, hc. 7.25" x 9.5". ~ Enh

    Have you ever stopped to realize that a comprehensive understanding of the earth, its structure, and its inhabitants are a necessary foundation for interacting meaningfully with our increasingly global-minded world? Taking an overview approach, the North Star Geography course covers geography skills (reading maps, using geographic tools, cartography, surveying, and navigation), physical geography (geology, meteorology, oceanography, ecology, hydrology, and astronomy), and human geography (sociology, culture, religion, transportation, agriculture, government, and economics). Bright Ideas Press and world geography – what a great idea! Student Reader plus Companion Guide CD-ROM (activities: maps, hands-on, research options, quizzes/tests) – what a great idea! Quality content, Biblical worldview, and user-friendliness all rolled up into one package – what a great idea!

    Obviously, the Student Reader is the heart of the course. Each of the sixteen lessons provides 15-20 pages of reading text, full-color illustrations, photos, sidebar articles, and maps. Lessons are divided into teaching segments which are both highly readable and interesting. The organization lends itself to flexibility, and the course could be done over one year (two weeks per lesson), two years (four weeks per lesson), or even one semester (one week per lesson – a bare bones approach). Vocabulary words are in bold with definitions provided in the glossary at the end of the text. The Reader concludes with a reference list that provides options for further study.

    The accompanying Companion Guide CD-ROM (pdf files) provides both basic and "extra" activities in addition to all content from the Reader. It's these pdf files that will allow you to tailor the course for high school, for junior high, or for a combination of ages. Families may make photocopies or print pages as needed, but classrooms and co-ops should contact the publisher for a multiple-use license. Depending on the course time-frame you choose, you will probably have to do some selection of activities, as there is a wealth provided.

    • • Hands-On Activities – there is lots of variety here – some short and simple, some more involved. Materials lists are provided when necessary (and tend to be easy-to-get items).
    • • Build Your Own Atlas – there's a segment for each lesson that includes labeling outline maps, completing fact files, and creating a set of political, physical, and thematic maps. Outline maps are provided but a good atlas as a reference is helpful (i.e. Wondermaps or Atlas of World Geography).
    • • Note-Taking Pages – each lesson has a set of 10 questions taken from the text that serve as lesson review and a study guide for the quizzes.
    • • Memorization Lists – a list of 198 countries, 70 regions and physical features to learn – roughly 16 items per lesson.
    • • Research Questions – a set of questions for each continent which encourage the student to conduct his own research (answers included).
    • • Quizzes and Tests – quizzes for each lesson (based on note-taking questions and map work). A final exam includes questions taken from all 16 of the lessons (answer keys and grading rubrics included).
    • • Graphic Organizers - can be used for all types of studies – world/continent, country, culture, regional geography, and government fact files.

    Homeschool geography courses have tended to be research frameworks that can be used by multi-age students and over several years. While having lots of advantages for families they require planning, preparation, and, often, outside resources. North Star takes a different approach providing a very solid base of textual information but giving lots of options for additional activities and research. It provides all necessary forms and pages, requiring only a good world atlas to accompany the course. ~ Janice

    This set from Alpha Omega includes individual LIFEPAC workbooks from the History and Geography series. Different grade levels and units that cover the topics needed for a Geography course were individually selected to assemble this set. The five History and Geography LIFEPACs included are: Grade 7, Unit 2; Grade 7, Unit 3; Grade 9, Unit 6; Grade 9, Unit 7; and Grade 9, Unit 9. The LIFEPACs are the same ones included in the normal History and Geography LIFEPACs for various grade levels, but they are compiled in this set to focus on Geography. A teacher's guide is included with the five workbooks, which includes an answer key for each LIFEPAC, as well as an alternative test, which assesses more specifically if students are learning certain Geography information. The teacher's guide states that completing this set earns junior high or high school students a half credit in Geography.

    Dinah Zike's series keeps growing. This book covers the highlights of world history from ancient times to the current day, but with an emphasis from 1700 onwards. Along with the historical highlights of each geographical area, a whole page of suggested activities using foldables is listed: research, cause and effect, reading, compare and contrast, listing, explaining, investigating, locating, and more. The book begins with a general introduction to foldables, which are used in the same way as in item #003016, above. The same basic folding instructions and fold types are detailed, but with a few new ones included. See the above item or other "Big Book of…" items elsewhere in the catalog for more details on foldables. This book also includes a section of reproducible world history graphics, timelines, and maps. ~ Zach

    From 500 A.D. to 1530 A.D., this literature approach to history takes students through the medieval period via some of the best classic and historic literature available. Students read works by classic authors such as Shakespeare, Chaucer, and Sir Walter Scott. They learn about heroic figures of the time like Wycliffe, Tyndale, Joan of Arc, Luther, Saladin and more. This one-year course has been revised and the publishers have broken the study into two guides; one for intermediate/junior high grades, and one for high school. The guides are now full-color. The Intermediate/Junior High guide features 35 weekly lessons with reading assignments, mapping activities, research and discussion topics, hands-on and craft suggestions, vocabulary lists and more.

    Resources for each guide are listed below; if a resource is used in both levels, it is marked with an (*).'

    Used as a resource for the upper levels of the History Odyssey program, this book from a secular publisher presents a truly global and comprehensive world history tracing the development of different civilizations through the ages from what is known as "pre-history" through the entrance into the twenty-first century. And all in a mere 1225 pages (hb)! Highly readable, interspersed with historical maps, this newly revised work provides a great narrative of the human species. ~ Janice

    So, why are we offering another map outline book? Well, this one is different from the others, and we just couldn't decide which was "better", because they both would serve a slightly different user. The book begins with a Mercator Projection map of the world, followed by 45 different maps of individual countries or small clusters of countries (too many to list here). Unlike Maps, there is only one, unlabeled, map for each title, and waterways are clearly shown. An inset map of the region is included, with map's location darkened for easy reference. Also included on each page is the area covered by the map in square miles. The U.S. map is marked with state boundaries and waterways. Maps for each of the 50 states appear alphabetically, again with waterways and square miles shown. A U.S. map is inset on each page, clearly showing the location of that state in the U.S. by shading. Basically, there are significantly more country-specific maps in this book, helpful if you need more detailed maps of smaller regions. For example, Germany is its own map in this book whereas it's lumped in a "Northern Europe" map in Maps. In fact, Northern Europe is broken into about four different maps in Blank Map Outlines. None of the maps are labeled, however, so you'll need to refer to an atlas for labeling. The other major difference is the inclusion of waterways (rivers and lakes) in this outline book.

    This is the combined, hardcover volume of the Children's Picture World History series, covering the first civilizations to 1914 A.D. Given to her as a gift, this volume was eagerly devoured from cover to cover by our then 5th grade daughter, who scarcely put it down and opened every sentence with "Did you know...?". Previously showing very little interest in history as a school subject, we were impressed at the ability of this book to hold her interest. The text is highly readable and the illustrations captivating. If you are force-feeding history to your upper-elementary or junior high student, this may be the answer. Please note that this is a secular publication. You may want to edit or omit some of this volume, particularly the earliest part. Depending on the age of your children, you may let them "edit" themselves - or use the discrepancies between the secular and Christian worldview as the basis for discussion.

    Author Kazuo Ishiguro, author of Remains of the Day, writes about fictional artist Masuji Ono as old man looking back on his life. He had been a well-known artist before WWII and worked in the service of the imperialist movement leading up to Japan's involvement in the war. A fascinating read about Japan at the end of the war and the impact on this person's life. You meet his family – daughters and grandson, who grew up in an amazing house that was acquired in a most interesting manner. The "floating world" refers to Japan's nightlife of bars, restaurants and entertainment. The artist escaped to this world after the war. The writing is just beautiful. I could hear a Japanese person's voice as I read it in his perfect English. It is a subtle story, quite elegant really, giving the reader insight to the Japanese character, their cultural values, pre- and post-WWII life. If you are looking for a story to read for a high school world literature course, this is a wonderful option. 207 pp, pb. ~ Sara

    Many great people and many great times throughout the history of the world have been remembered through speeches. It's easy to think of some of these in the modern times – Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream," Richard Nixon's speech to astronauts on the moon, John F. Kennedy's inaugural address, and Winston Churchill's "Their Finest Hour," for example. Perhaps not so easy to name are some of those speeches that have held their place in time throughout the centuries – such speeches as Julius Caesar's "On the Treatment of the Conspirators," Socrates on his condemnation and death, Danton's "To Dare Again, Ever to Dare!" and Martin Luther before the Diet of Worms. Divided into seven parts, the 292 speeches in this book are drawn from: Earlier Times (Ancient Greece and Rome, Great Britain and Ireland, the early United States, Canada, South America, South Africa, India, and China), Recent Times (US domestic affairs, world affairs and WWII, and US affairs and WWII), Modern Times (US government, international affairs, and the United Nations), Informal Speeches (of the last two centuries), Important Speeches of the Sixties, Speeches by Black Americans, and Speeches from the period 1974 – 1997. From Pericles and Isocrates to Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Ronald Reagan, and the Earl of Spencer, these speeches are a great resource for history, inspiration, quotations, and much more. Speeches are indexed by topic, by nationality, and by speaker for ease of reference. ~ Zach
