    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 found yourself wishing that the information found in Story of the World was available for an older student, or maybe for yourself? Well, now it is! Corresponding to the time period covered by SOTW, Vol. 1 and written by Susan Wise Bauer in her highly readable style, this is a "grown-up" version suitable for older students and parents. Accompanying the text are maps and timelines, even a few photos. This book just begs to be read. I started reading the section on Spartacus and soon found myself enthralled with the details of the Gladiator Wars. ~ Janice

    If anyone can show us the history of the world, it is National Geographic. From the earliest times through 2005, the history of the world is described, outlined, and shown in full color. The book begins with a discussion of "prehistory" as an alternative to creation a section that spends about 30 pages guessing and assuming an alternative theory of early history. Actual recorded history is divided into 7 time periods: First Empires (ca. 7000 B.C.-200A.D), Ancient World (2500 B.C.-900 A.D.), Middle Ages (5th-15th Century), Early Modern Period (16th-18th Century), Modern Era (1789-1914), World Wars and Interwar Period (1914-1945), and the Contemporary World (1945-2005). Each of these sections is packed with information-rich text, photos, paintings, illustrations, maps, and short bios. There are two types of timelines in the book: a running timeline along the bottom of each page, which details the date of events and important people through history, and 4 fold-out timelines one of the Roman Empire, one for the Reformation, one chronicling the French Revolution, and one covering WWII. Point to note: there are photos and paintings that show nudity and dead bodies. 636 pgs, hc.

    As the mom of a budding zoologist, I quickly found that most of the books we read covered the same information…oh, there may have been variations in content or images, but the animal species were nearly identical. I felt like we were always studying the same things. If you ever felt the same way with your little zoologist, I think you will be pleased with this excellent resource. From a Christian perspective, this book introduces children to some of God's unusual animal and plant creations found within nature.

    Written and photographed by a father and son missionary team, the chapters are beautifully photographed and well-written. As a visual learner, I really appreciate how each of the topical chapters is color-coded, meaning that individual life forms studied are presented on uniquely colored pages. The information is presented in a story format and ranges from 3-7 pages per specimen. You and your children will be captivated reading about the Northern Potoo, Jabiru storks, black howler monkeys, monkey-faced orchids (yes - there really is such a flower), the poison dart frog, the Indian piper, the cacao tree, weasel and much more. Scripture references, observations about the marvelous design of our God and scientific names offer a refreshing look our Father's world. Magnificently illustrated with full color photographs, the entire family will be eager to learn more about God's creation. HC. 149 pgs. ~Deanne

    Tired of exposing your children to evolutionary "facts" while studying the countries of our world? Well, no more! Master Books, in partnership with My Father's World, provides this quality resource designed to enhance our study of the world from a Christian perspective.

    Each of the seven continents is represented with highlights of more well-know nations. Information typically found in a quality atlas is included like landmarks, rivers, countries/capitals, flags, peoples, distinctive animals, biomes and the physical characteristic of the land. Unique to this atlas is the information on Christian history, people of faith and Christian traditions around the globe. For example, in the section on Saudia Arabia we read, "One of the first church buildings ever constructed has been found here by archaeologists. Built around the 4th century, it has come to be called the Jubail Church. Many congregations of Christians once thrived here until they were killed or driven out by the growth of Islam at the end of the first millennium…" The other distinctive feature you will appreciate is the lack of evolutionary timeline dating. Additional resources found in the back of the book include a glossary, definitions of government systems, holidays around the world, and detailed index. Vividly illustrated with photographs and full color maps, children will be eager to learn more about God's world. Oversized HC. 96 ps. ~Deanne

    "Fabulous" is a word I rarely use but in this case it's entirely appropriate. These ARE good activities – creative, supportive, and very do-able. These hands-on activities are versatile enough to use with any history or social studies curriculum. Starting with a nice topic matrix that shows you what activities support what social studies skill areas, the book provides clear instruction with good illustrations, a materials list, step-by-step directions, tips to make things a little easier and just a bit of textual content called Content Connection. In this collection you'll see some expected projects – collages and dioramas, for instance. At the same time, other activities suggest the most creative use of paper bags and hangers that I've seen in a very long time. Topics covered include geography, map skills, places, time, history, people, citizenship, environment, government, economics, and, celebrations. Grade levels are listed as 2nd to 3rd grade but could easily be adapted for higher grades. All patterns are included and reproducible for classroom use. 64 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    Fifty events beginning with September 28, 480 B.C. and concluding with September 11, 2001, were chosen for their impact on world history. The author's choice of these important dates and events comes from a secular view of history. He includes the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ on Good Friday 30 A.D. as the start of the Christian era. Other events include: the death of Muhammad, the coronation of Charlemagne, the founding of Jamestown, VA, the fall of the Bastille, Alexander Graham Bell discovers the telephone, the Boxer rebellion, Operation Barbarossa, the bombing of Hiroshima and the release from prison of Nelson Mandela. He explains what may have happened in the world if these events had gone differently. I think it would be interesting for students to read this book and then create their own list of events that they feel changed the world. ~ Sara

    Need project ideas for a unit study? Do you want your kids to do some hands-on activities with an Ancient Cultures lesson? This resource is here to help. This book contains twenty ideas covering all seven ancient wonders: Great Pyramid, Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Statue of Zeus at Olympia, Colossus of Rhodes, Temple of Artemis, Mausoleum of Helicarnassus, and the Pharos of Alexandria. There are informational factoids, as well as travel tips. (For example, if you visit a McDonald's in Egypt, you can order a McFalafel!). The project ideas vary, but all have good directions and how-to illustrations. As an example, when learning about pyramids, you can re-create the sledges used to move the giant stones using pencils and a heavy book. Kids are given the dimensions of the Great Pyramid, then challenged to calculate how long it would take to walk around the base. To solve, mark off twenty feet, time how long it takes to walk the distance, then do the math. Older kids could easily follow directions in here without parent help and share their finished product with you, but younger kids will need some guidance. If you don't have the time to find project ideas elsewhere, this is a great little book of ideas! ~ Sara

    This is a book from a well-known author of educational activity books – Dinah Zike. Based around the idea of foldables – 3-D interactive graphic organizers - she has outlined all kinds of ways to incorporate hands-on activities into your social studies program. In case you aren't yet familiar with foldables, the first section of this three-part book is an introduction to what foldables are and the why and how to use them. The second part teaches how to make foldables, with instructions for one, two, three, and four-part folds, as well as foldables with any number of parts and foldable projects. Section three has 77 ideas for different foldable activities in three categories: General Social Studies, United States History Topics, and World History Topics. The book is well illustrated, with lots of diagrams of the right folds and cuts to make. At the end of the folding instructions section are several pages of visuals and graphics to be copied and used with the foldables. These hands-on projects would work equally well in a homeschool or classroom setting. 136 pgs, pb. ~ Zach
