    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

    Most books that tell about Columbus and other explorers coming to the New World describe an advanced civilization coming to a savage and uncivilized land. Not so with this fascinating book, which gives a world-wide look at the time period and shows how the Age of Exploration spread aspects of various cultures around the world. While the text is easy enough for younger students to read and great illustrations are liberally included, even adults will find the information intriguing. In short sections, the book tells about various explorers like Columbus, Balboa, John Cabot, Jacques Cartier, Sir Francis Drake, Ferdinand Magellan, Zheng He, and more. Interspersed with their stories are those of notable rulers and people who they met on their adventures like Atahualpa, Malinche, Montezuma, and Pachakuti. Focusing on the Inca and Aztec empires (but including general information about the continent as a whole), the book shows that America was actually fairly civilized before anyone else arrived. The book goes on to show how different cultures began to share things and while many books only tell of the "advancements" brought to the New World, this book also shares cultural aspects that spread worldwide from America. It really is a fascinating look at how the meeting of two previously separated lands created the world we know today. Art reproductions, beautiful maps, photographs, and other illustrations with detailed captions fill up much of the pages. Informative timelines also highlight important events in different areas of the world. If youre looking for a well-rounded, intriguing introduction to the Age of Exploration and how it changed the world, this books for you. 64 pgs, hc. ~ Rachel

    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).

    (Description by publisher - stay tuned for our own!) The First World War conjures up images of barbed wire, muddy trenches, blasted tree trunks and shell-pocked battlefields, and destroyed 21 million lives. This book asks what caused it, what it was like to fight, and why it is still remembered with horror a hundred years after it began.

    Wow. If there was ever a perfect overview of the Second World War written for children, this would come pretty close. Not only does it tell the story about the major battles and people involved, but it also weaves in just about every aspect you could think of: the ideas at war, roles of women and children on both sides, strategies and tactics employed, and much more. It's clear that this book was written with the intention of helping children not only know about the war, but more deeply understand it all while keeping it on a comprehensible level. Drawings and historical photos grace the pages, along with plenty of interesting asides with quotations, statistics, and mini-bios. 91 pgs. Chad

    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
