    (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. Its 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

    Samuel B. Harding tells the story of the Middle Ages which he says is when Europe became Europe. It was a time of transition. The power of Rome was gone, and people groups were once again gaining their own identities and building their own states and civilizations. In a direct and engaging style, Harding tells about the Ancient Germans and the people of the Roman Frontier; he details the end of the Western Empire and the growth of the Church; he looks at the rise of the Franks and their struggles with the Mohammedans and Charlemagne; and he discusses the growth of feudalism, the deeds of the Northmen, the crusades, life in the Middle Ages, the papacy, and the Hundred Years War. This reprinted, 100-year old text is 217 pgs in pb and includes black and white illustrations throughout.

    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, Christs 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

    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 childrens 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 Childs 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 Childs 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

    (description by publisher) Perfect for car time, quiet time, or anytime! Enjoy Jim Weiss' trademark style as he reads The Story of Ethelred. Why did one of the last Anglo-Saxon kings of England leave his throne when Sweyn Forkbeard and the Vikings invaded? In less than forty years, England changed hands forever. How did the life of the boy-king Ethelred alter English history? Connie Clark's biography of the king who paved the way for the Viking invasion answers these questions, while Jed Mickle's ingenious and energetic illustrations give us a fresh look at Ethelred and the colorful men and women who surrounded him during his reign. The Story of Ethelred correlates to Chapter 15 of The Story of the World, Volume 2 and allows even the youngest scholars to explore outside reading as a way to gain historical knowledge.

    Fans of Susan Wise Bauers Story of the Worldare thankful shes writing a series for young (and not-so-young) adults. History of the Renaissance World is third in this series and tells the story of a world in transition. From the end of the First Crusade through the beginnings of our modern world, Ms. Bauer details the declining influence of the Popes even as the Inquisition seeks to assert their control; ordinary people seizing power even as kings and emperors cling to their divine rights; and world-changing catastrophes (ie. Little Ice Age, Great Famine, and Black Death); even as adventurous exploration opens up new worlds. Plentiful maps and illustrations accompany the distinctively readable text. ~ Janice

All of these tales and more in this 169-page book. ~ Mark
