    This masterpiece of classical literature was written by Herodotus in Greek and translated into English by Aubrey De Selincourt. It offers a Greek view of the world in the fifth century BC and includes information about many outside countries and people. The background story of the book is about a small group of Greek city-states uniting to defeat the Persian empire, but there are many digressions in the book that share about monuments, religious beliefs, customs, and natural wonders of Greece and other countries. The author, being Greek, highlights the fact that the Greek way of life is superior, but his avid description of other peoples and their cultures shows that he respected them as well. Herodotus includes facts about battles, wars, and soldiers, but also describes the Nile, praises Egyptian monuments, shares legends from other countries, describes inventions of the day, details geographical features, and so much more. Its a great blend of information and, though long, it is interesting to read. Notes are included to define people and terms that the average reader would be unfamiliar with. This edition also includes an introduction about the author and the text, a chronology, and a glossary. 716 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Although there is some debate as to whether Herodotus should be known as The Father of History or The Father of Lies, his collection of Histories is considered to be the first piece of Western historical writing and offers wonderful insights into the Ancient World. His writings may very well be regarded as unhistorical by todays standards, but at a time when the modern concept of history had not yet been defined, Herodotus aim was to preserve the memory of the past by recording the remarkable achievements of the Greeks & other peoples. This accounts for Herodotus wide range of writing interests as opposed to more traditional historical topics of diplomacy, war, politics, and economics. Divided into nine books, the first five provide the background for the longstanding Greco-Persian animosity while the primary focus on books six through nine is the Greco-Persian Wars beginning with Darius defeat at Marathon and ending with Xerxes invasion of Greece. Translated by George Rawlinson. A Wordsworth Classic. 734 pgs, pb. ~ Enh

    This book offers a clever method of introducing young children to important events in world history. Filled with over 100 stickers featuring objects, people, and scenes representing these happenings, your child will travel the world and briefly learn about such events as the construction of the Great Pyramids of Egypt, the landing of the Pilgrims at Plymouth, and the fall of the Berlin Wall. The stickers are numbered, allowing for your child to easily locate the correct map to which they belong. Maps are divided into the following regions: Africa, Asia, North and Central America, South America, The Middle East, Australasia, Europe (Western), and Europe (Eastern). Although this book is not designed to provide an overly detailed account of the history of the world, it does serve to familiarize young learners to some of the more notable historical events. Please note: one of the events highlighted does pertain to Charles Darwin and his contribution to the idea of evolution. 24 pgs, pb. ~ Enh

    A wonderful way to incorporate geography into your world studies! Besides teaching basic map concepts like longitude and latitude, they help teach the facts and ideas of history; each map becoming a do-it-yourself visual aid. There are 35 map activities in all - each with a research and instruction sheet and a map to be completed, that span history from Ancient Near East to Africa: The New Nations. Some maps are examples of historic concepts and terms. The map of Africa in 1914, for example, is a vivid portrayal of the concept of imperialism. Some activities are self-contained, some require reference to a text, others require some research in an atlas or encyclopedia. These sheets are not keyed to a particular text, but should work well with whatever text or course you choose - or use by itself as a survey course. A key is provided for each of the exercises, but there is no key for the map work. Sheets are reproducible (for within your home).

    If youre a Christian homeschooler, youve probably struggled at one time or another with presenting a biblical sequence of history to your children. Its often easy to just skip over the evolutionary content that prefaces most world history books, but its not so easy to estimate biblical dates for early historical events to make them fit into a biblically-based history. Fortunately for us, Ruth Beechick has also struggled with this issue, and this book is the result of her extensive studies. It is intended to provide what she sees as the best and most biblical view of world history in a brief course for teens, adults, and even young students. Five chapters cover early times, the kingdom of Israel, Gentile kingdoms, the kingdom of Christ (present day), and dating systems. For the most part, the emphasis is on ancient history, and so we begin in Genesis working our way from Creation through the Flood and beyond. The chapters rely heavily on excerpts from the Bible as the primary text, although the chapter on Gentile kingdoms has brief summaries of each civilization. Coverage is not deep here; rather the intention is to provide students a framework into which they can fit the rest of their world history studies. The author recommends taking time out from a current history program to do this study, as students (and teacher!) will have a much better frame of reference once they have completed it. Although the book could be used with a single student, it would also work well with students at different levels or as a whole family study. The reading level is fairly low, and the assignments are open-ended enough that young and old students can do them to the best of their own ability. Ruth Beechick provides plenty of helpful information for the teacher too, including how to best work through each chapter with students. The book is fairly short (only 121 pages) and is divided into 42 sub-sections; if one section is completed daily, the book will only take two or three months to finish. Each subsection includes directions, questions for discussion (which could be posed before or after the reading), text and/or Bible verses, and notebook assignments. The notebook assignments typically consist of writing brief statements about the lesson or short writing assignments based on the lesson. These are then compiled into a notebook during the study. At the end of the book youll find sample answers, an annotated bibliography, and an index. What a great study to start off your year, especially if you will be using some secular history resources! pb. Jess

    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, Christs 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

    If a picture is worth a thousand words, these are worth a million! Profusely illustrated with lively, but sparse, text, this volume would appeal greatly to a visual learner. The cutaway diagrams, maps and timeline features are very helpful. Like the first edition Kingfisher Illustrated History of the World, most pages incorporate a timeline of events during the period covered on the page-spread. A bottom of the page timeline shows in shaded color the period covered. Medieval World goes from 500 AD to 1500, beginning with the destruction of the Roman Empire and ending with the birth of the Renaissance. Very attractive overviews that your children will read for fun (and pick up a lot of history along the way).

    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

    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 childrens 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 Childs 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 Childs 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

    Reading about history is one thing; seeing pictures of historical artifacts, people, and places is another thing altogether. Each appeals in a different way. How fantastic is a resource that melds the two together, so you can see where things were taking place around the globe, and how people and places changed through the ages. By tying world history to maps, we get a colorful text that depicts history visually across the globe and through time. There are more than 60 hand-illustrated maps, all in full color, which are accompanied by authoritative text (in bite-sized paragraphs), timelines, and photos of people, places, and artifacts. The book looks as far back as 10,000 BC (which is not as far back as many secular history texts) and then divides history into four time periods: Ancient World, Medieval World, Exploration and Empire, and the Modern World (since 1800). 192 pages in hardcover, this book is durable enough to be enjoyed by the entire family.

    This is the combined, hardcover volume of the Childrens 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.

    Fans of Susan Wise Bauers Story of the Worldare thankful shes writing a series for young (and not-so-young) adults. History of the Renaissance World is third in this series and tells the story of a world in transition. From the end of the First Crusade through the beginnings of our modern world, Ms. Bauer details the declining influence of the Popes even as the Inquisition seeks to assert their control; ordinary people seizing power even as kings and emperors cling to their divine rights; and world-changing catastrophes (ie. Little Ice Age, Great Famine, and Black Death); even as adventurous exploration opens up new worlds. Plentiful maps and illustrations accompany the distinctively readable text. ~ Janice
