    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

    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

    When reading the Bible, sometimes it is hard for kids (and adults) to see the "big picture." This big (and I mean BIG) Bible time line will help you see when the Bible events happened in relation to each other and how those events fit together to tell one BIG story! This reproducible book contains 68 11" x 8 1/2" pages. Each page highlights two major events, including a scripture reference, estimated time in history, and a black-and-white cartoon illustration that can be colored. When all the pages are hung side-by-side in chronological order it creates a 60' long time line. This timeline begins with Adam and Eve in the garden, and finishes with John being exiled on Patmos writing Revelation. Some fun activities are outlined in the introduction that will help you make the most of this great teaching tool. No matter how you put this time line to use, your children will appreciate the simple way it communicates the big picture of what the Bible is all about. Pb, 78 pgs. – elise

    It sure is! It's about time someone made an inexpensive, spiral-bound timeline affordable enough to use for specific studies or for one-year use. Even the most frugal homeschool mom can justify the cost of this history aid for each student. Timelines are a wonderful tool for putting events and people into context as they are studied during the year - if you can get your children into the "timeline habit". Reading about Isaac Newton and the "discovery" of gravity in science? Chart it! Using the Phythagorean theorem in math? Put in on! Reading Beowulf in literature? Add it, too! You get the idea. By the end of the year, they should have a great visual overview of the year to reflect back on. Another great feature of this timeline is its flexibility. You customize the pages to fit your needs. Each divided column can be a year, decade, century, or whatever you decide. Focus in or get the big picture - it adapts to your needs. The shaded row along the center can be used to record the time periods for that page. The shaded row at the top can contain a page title, or period designation. Divided lines that separate the ruled columns can also be used to categorize entries by topic or subject area. Blank form pages and a sample page gives ideas on customizing timeline.

    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

    Around here, we like things that just work and get the job done, and are easy-to-use. I guess that's why we liked this product. It takes the time, frustration, and work out of creating endless paper timelines, or even using a blank one by letting you create it all on a computer, and than make as many copies as you need. Easy Timeline Creator gives the user a host of options and flexibility to create any sort of timeline. Basically, the program leads the user through a series of windows, through which they determine the title of their timeline, choose a starting and ending date, select the frequency and distance between the tick marks (years, decades, centuries, etc.). Once the basics have been settled, the user can check categories to be represented on the timeline, including literature, science, space, or different time periods or civilizations such as Greece, Rome, or the Middle Ages. Selecting these will place an item in the timeline with a special icon in front of it to clearly designate it as a development or event in that category. Then you're ready to add events. To add an event, just type it in, add a date, or starting and ending dates, and the category you've chosen that it belongs in, and you're set. You can also change the font type or color to really separate events and make them stand out if you want. Once you've added your events, you can see your timeline on the screen with your events placed on it with their small colored icons. At this point you can add clipart, either from the 100 images included on the CD-ROM, or any of your own choosing. You can click and drag or resize images and place them wherever you'd like, or delete it again if you want. There are also a number of options for printing, including the paper orientation and a fit to page option. As soon as you're happy, print it out, and voila - you have a custom timeline to fit whatever you're studying. With such an easy-to-use interface, and simple steps, this will cut timeline-making time in half - and likely inspire you to use it often! Students can even make their own timelines. I just love it when someone develops a product that's timesaving, easy-to-use, and does just what it should. It's about time for a product like this!

    Enthusiastic users of Susan Wise Bauer’s Story of the World will be excited to rediscover the modern era, “From Victoria’s Empire to the End of the USSR.” Formatted similarly to the previous volumes in the series, the Modern Age text contains 42 chapters highlighting some of the major people, places and events in world history, from 1850 to 2000. Some highlights include: the Crimean war, the American Civil War, the Second Reich, the Japan’s Meiji restoration, the Suez canal, the Boers, Western expansion in the U.S., the Boxer Rebellion in China, the Mexican Revolution, the rise of Joseph Stalin, Hitler’s rise to power, the Holocaust, the Atom bomb, the partitioning of Palestine, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, Chernobyl, the end of Communism, and much more. As usual, students will get a “balanced” view of world history, with events from nearly every country in the world - not just Europe and the U.S. Each “story” from history is told in an exciting, readable way, which is sure to hold students’ attention - especially as they cover history in the not-too-distant past! The activity book is once again substantial and invaluable, containing both teacher and student portions. The parent’s pages feature review questions with answers, guidelines for an outlining exercise for the student, suggested further reading and literature tie-ins, map activities, and hands-on projects related to the topics covered in the text. As usual, the projects are very creative and I can definitely see kids getting excited about doing them - one of the activities for Chapter One definitely caught my eye! In this activity, kids will get to time themselves and compare “loading” two different “rifles” with cardboard tubes, homemade “cartridges,” and a few other kitchen materials! The parent’s portion for each chapter also features cross-references on the same topic to other resources, including the Kingfisher History Encyclopedia, the Kingfisher Illustrated History of the World, the Usborne Book of World History, the Usborne History of the 20th Century, and the Usborne Internet-Linked Encyclopedia. The student’s portion of the activity guide includes partial outlines for each chapter for them to finish, outline maps for map activities, worksheet activities, and timeline figures including world flags from each country’s independence or establishment. The tests and answers for this volume are bound into a paperback, 3-hole punched volume, and include tests and answers for each chapter. Once again, Susan Wise Bauer has put together a very exciting and multi-faceted history study that everyone will love!

    The text is now available in either paperback, hardcover, or spiral binding, for your convenience. The Activity Book is a bound paperback. - Jess

    This 12 ¼" x 9" binder provides you with a handy place to record the chronology of history from 5000 B.C. to today. Beginning in 5000 B.C. each sturdy page holds a bold horizontal line across the middle of the page representing 1000 years. The span of time on each page quickly decreases to only 50 years by 650 B.C. and then slowly fluctuates from between 100-5 years on each page from 0 A.D. to the present, varying to allow all major events and figures to be marked. At least one year is marked on every page below the timeline in order to provide you with markers, and quotes from people throughout history adorn the top or bottom of every couple pages. Following the 112 timeline pages are 17 blank maps of ancient times and the world today. This book is nicely packaged in a 3-ring binder, allowing you to easily flip through the pages and view specific dates. You may easily use this record for writing or drawing in events and people yourself as you study, or see above for accompanying timeline packets. ~ Steph

    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

    This National Geographic biography features the story of Alexander the Great. The book is a excellent resource as it shares information from Alexander's life in four sections. The first shares about his childhood, including information on his parents and his favorite pastimes. The second informs us about his young adult life, becoming king, and his wives and family. The third section tells about his military conquests and gives details on all the areas he conquered, as well as his tactics and strategies. The final section depicts Alexander's final days, what happened to his body, and the legacy he left behind. Throughout the book, color pictures show relics from the time of Alexander, including art, statues, and ruins. A timeline runs through the entire book at the bottom of each page, highlighting important events. Famous quotes from Alexander or things said about him are sporadically accented. The story-telling tone of the book makes it easy to read and, coupled with the great illustrations, makes the historical information come alive. A short glossary and index are included. Hardback, 64 pages. ~ Rachel S.

    Author Kazuo Ishiguro, author of Remains of the Day, writes about fictional artist Masuji Ono as old man looking back on his life. He had been a well-known artist before WWII and worked in the service of the imperialist movement leading up to Japan's involvement in the war. A fascinating read about Japan at the end of the war and the impact on this person's life. You meet his family – daughters and grandson, who grew up in an amazing house that was acquired in a most interesting manner. The "floating world" refers to Japan's nightlife of bars, restaurants and entertainment. The artist escaped to this world after the war. The writing is just beautiful. I could hear a Japanese person's voice as I read it in his perfect English. It is a subtle story, quite elegant really, giving the reader insight to the Japanese character, their cultural values, pre- and post-WWII life. If you are looking for a story to read for a high school world literature course, this is a wonderful option. 207 pp, pb. ~ Sara
