    The Student Review Pack is considered optional. It includes a Student Review book with review questions on each lesson and essay questions on the literature, a Quiz and Exam Book with unit quizzes and exams, and a separate answer key. Discussions for the projects are not provided but would be helpful in some instances (some general information is provided in a brief parent guide included in the Curriculum Package). Questions, Quizzes, and Exams all tend toward reiterating textual information, while the projects tend toward analytical and evaluative activities.  Please note there are some corrections and updates for the Student Review Pack available on the Notgrass website.

    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.

    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 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

    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. – Zach

    A fantastic companion to any study of history, or even just engaging reading for any history buff, this timeline is a very accessible "look-up" resource for historical events. History is divided into 20 eras, which each include a 32-inch fold out timeline and three additional pages that highlight specific figures and events from the period. The timeline pages begin with fairly large time spans and become narrower as the book progresses into modern times. There are four eras from the beginning of history to the BC/AD change, ten from AD1 – 1900, and six eras from 1900 to today (2010). There is also a 4-page, non-fold-out timeline covering American history specifically. I should also note that the first timeline covers "prehistory" from 6 million to 3000 BC. It includes "information" on the evolution and migration of "early humans." This is a secular text, though it does reference the lives of numerous religious figures throughout history. The timeline pages are packed with chronological dates accompanied by capsule summaries and plenty of photos and illustrations. 131 page, hc. – Zach

    Fitting all of human history into a 384-page book is a Herculean task, but one you might expect the folks at National Geographic to tackle. To bring the task down to size, topics include events in a particular area of the world over a specific time span. Each topic is presented in 2-to-6 page sections, in more or less chronological order. In addition to the very readable text, these sections include colorful photographs, maps, and period artwork. Inset in the text are quotes from famous people, related side stories of interest, and key dates and events of the era. The last 50 pages are devoted to the "At a Glance" section, a highlights section describing in one paragraph: Major Wars; Major Religions; Periods and Movements; Human Accomplishments; Leaders; Scientists, Inventors & Philosophers; Explorers; and, Artists. To keep things in perspective, an appendix lists dynasties, time periods, rulers, presidents and prime ministers of the major empires and nations. All in all, a good overview book from a trusted publisher. ~ Bob

     Divided into seven chronological sections with dates arranged in columns according to geographic location, this vibrantly illustrated book helps children (and parents!) “connect the dots,” putting worldwide events into their historical period. For example, did you know that Homer composed the Iliad and Odyssey in Europe during 800 BC, while the Hindu religion spread into Southern India that same year? Or that during the American Civil War (1860-1865 AD), the World’s first underground railway was built in London (1863), and Italy was unified? There is so much to learn in this fascinating book! Timeline begins in 10,000 BC and ends 1996. Beautifully illustrated. 128 pgs, hc. ~ Deanne

    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.

    Five hundred pages of art history in a 5x6.5" book? What? Yes, it's true and I love it! Imagine a big beautiful coffee table style book, full of beautiful color photos arranged chronologically, that you can easily pick up and read. It is a comprehensive reference book with a helpful index in the back, perfect for adding to any art curriculum or even your world history program. Periods include pre- and early history (40,000-500 BCE); antiquity; late antiquity & the middle ages; renaissance; baroque; 18th century; 19th century; 20th century before 1945; and art after 1945. For families concerned about nudity, there are several statues and paintings depicting both males and females in various states of undress. I counted about 50 among the 900 images in the book. The variety of artists is outstanding. The text is interesting and very readable, and the information is factual and solid. For a student interested in art, this book is a must have. 512pp, pb (1.5" thick). ~ Sara

    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

    From the pyramids to cathedrals to skyscrapers--if you have a student interested in building structures, then having a good resource book can only encourage them to build new things! This small format book has 600 color photos to accompany the text. I loved the chronology moving from pre-history and early history (10,000-1500 BCE) to antiquity & early Christianity, Romanesque, gothic, renaissance, baroque, neoclassicism, 19th century, 20th century before 1945, and then architecture after 1945. The text is readable and interesting. This would make a great addition to any history curriculum, unit study on architecture, or just a resource to have around the house to spark a child's curiosity (or your own)! Stonehenge, the Temple of Horus, the Acropolis, the Roman monastery in Cluny, Mont St. Michel, Palazzo Grimani, the Chateau de Blois, St. Domingo in Oaxaca, the Louvre, Einstein Tower, skyscrapers, Yamanashi Press & Radio Center, Reichstag Dome, and the Seattle Public Library are among the amazing structures features in this compact resource. 510pp, 5x6.5" (1.5" thick) pb. ~ Sara

    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 you're a Christian homeschooler, you've probably struggled at one time or another with presenting a biblical sequence of history to your children. It's often easy to just skip over the evolutionary content that prefaces most world history books, but it's 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 you'll 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
