    Subtitled “From Elizabeth the First to the Forty-Niners,” this volume of Story of the World takes another good-sized bite out of world history. The forty-two chapters are told in a similar style to the first two volumes, with each chapter divided up into shorter readings of a couple pages each, just enough to grab most children’s attention and keep it until they begin to tire of history, and their minds begin to wander. And Susan Wise Bauer’s exciting and engaging way of putting the “story” back into history, chances are they may even be begging for more! Like the other volumes, she also does a terrific job of taking the typical “European” slant out of her telling of world history, while incorporating events and people from all over the world in her chronological presentation, giving children a much more “complete” picture than they would likely otherwise get. As with the other volumes, this book is not meant to cover everything in the time period, but to hit the high points and serve as a springboard to explore people, events, and eras more thoroughly as desired. Topics covered in Volume 3 include Japanese warlords, colonies in the “New World”, spread of slavery, the “Sun King” of France, English in India, imperialist China, revolutionary war, Captain Cook’s explorations, age of industrialism in Europe, Napoleon, French Revolution, Lewis & Clark, Mexican independence, Africa and colonialism, the Opium Wars, the Gold Rush, and much, much more.

    The text is available in a paperback or spiral-bound version. The activity book is a bound paperback.- Jess

    A masterful account of this most amazing American. "A biography of Franklin written with a sweep and verve worthy of its subject and brilliantly illustrated." — The New Yorker. This superb biography of the printer, statesman, author, reformer, inventor and ambassador reveals a Benjamin Franklin who in his time lived more lives than many men together. The brilliance and inexhaustible ingenuity of mind that fascinated his contemporaries continues to charm us now in Daugherty's work of perhaps America's most distinguished citizen and most interesting human being. Here is an understanding of the Poor Richard that underlay all Franklin's life, through honors and distinctions, foreign and domestic, saying with shrewd Yankee economy: "Well done is better than well said." As with all of Daugherty's books, his illustrations of two- and three-color compliment the meaty text for the enjoyment of all. (description by Beautiful Feet)

    Although people have always regarded Benjamin Franklin as one of the most famous inventors in American history, few people realize that his genius was, in fact, a mouse. Yes, that's right - a mouse named Amos, who found his way to Benjamin Franklin's home one cold night. As one of those closest to Ben, Amos found it necessary to write this (amusing) portrayal of Benjamin Franklin to counter all of the stories written by those who had never even met Ben and certainly never knew that Amos was responsible for a great many of the much esteemed inventions. This classic has been amusing young readers for more than sixty years. 114 pgs. - Melissa

    This unique book tells the story of the American Revolution from both the British and American side, specifically focusing on George Washington and King George III. The book shares how similar the two men were and how events escalated to cause the war. It changes between sharing historical events from the British point of view to sharing them from the colonist point of view. Captivating text shares about how the different governments worked, the Boston Tea Party, the Battle of Bunker Hill, fighting strategies of both sides, the Declaration of Independence, different battles, the founding of America, and what happened to both Georges after the war. While highlighting the important parts of the war, the book shows what drove each George to make the decisions he did. Full-color, detailed paintings illustrate each page, exemplifying the story and drawing readers in. The illustrations include characters with speech balloons sharing quotes from real people of the time period. This book tells the basic causes, events, and ending of the Revolutionary War while showing that there are two sides to every story.

    Known for his recklessness, Benedict Arnold just didn't know when to quit. Even as a young boy he was already pulling crazy stunts like climbing up on a burning roof and picking a fight with the town constable. As an adult, this same reckless determination drove him to obsession with becoming a leader and a hero in every battle. His efforts were rewarded in 1777 when George Washington pronounced him "the bravest of the brave." Arnold might have gone down in history as one of the bravest war heroes of all time, but in the years following, his greed led him down a tragic path of treachery. ~ Rachel P.
