    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

    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

    The dawn of the nineteenth century was wrought with hope in our rapidly changing world of communication, transportation and technology, but dark days loom as human rights and liberties are being trampled across the ocean. With the strong belief that "history is drama" Genevieve Foster invites you to join her in the exciting tale of history in the early 1800s. Part one introduces us to Richard Trevithick and Robert Fulton as they develop steam for a mode of transportation. The second part exposes us to leaders of nations, exploration and music: Napoleon Bonaparte, Thomas Jefferson, Touissant L' Overture, Lewis and Clark, and Beethoven. In part three we return to the progress made by Trevithick and Fulton, meet James Madison and learn of the downfall of Napoleon Bonaparte. Black and white illustrations and engaging text, this book is classic Genevieve Foster. Reprinted by Beautiful Feet Books. SC. 96 pgs. ~ Deanne

    Some of the best stories are the ones that come from real people in history. One such story starts with a boy who was raised a Quaker in the Pennsylvania region before the founding of the United States. Benjamin West enjoyed painting so much he did what most would never think of doing: He made paint from clay, plants, and dirt, and fashioned paintbrushes from the tail of his cat, Grimalkin! Follow the great American writer Marguerite Henry as she traces the early years of this young man and his cat in this exciting tale. 147 pgs, pb. John

    Full of colorful artwork and photos as well as black & white illustrations, vocabulary tidbits, maps, and biographical sketches, it is skillfully formatted into an appealing and engaging text. Each of the 28 chapters (i.e. weekly lessons) have text interspersed with Narration Breaks (place to stop and recount orally the information that has been covered) and questions: "Ready to Explore". Each chapter ends with a two-page photo montage (a feature I love) that pertains to the chapter's focus. For instance, there is a collection of Native American dwellings each with short informational captions in America's Story.

    Discover what it was like to live in America during the 16th and 17th century with this history project book. A timeline of key dates of colonial America and a brief overview of the thirteen colonies at the front puts the events and years into perspective, while the first chapter completes the foundation by providing a fascinating account of how colonial America came to exist and how life there began. The remaining seven chapters each focus on one aspect of life in colonial America, such as life in a colonial home, colonial clothes, work, communication, or the kids of the colonial days. Each of these chapters provides interesting passages on the respective part of life surrounded by features such as colonial words to know, spotlight on famous colonists, and hands-on projects that bring what you read to real life. Construct your own miniature wattle and daub house as you learn about colonial homes, sip your own homemade apple cider while reading about colonial farms and gardens, and make your own yarn, cloth, and dye just as the colonists did while dressed as a colonist with the help of other projects in the colonial clothes chapter. Fort-four projects in all provide plenty of original activities to recreate life in colonial America. Steph
