    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

    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!

Accompanying the text are maps and timelines, even a few photos. This book just begs to be read.

    Although not a new idea today, interplanetary travel was an original idea at the time H.G. Wells wrote this title. Horrifying readers in its day, The War of the Worlds is an imaginative account of hostile creatures from Mars invading Earth. Moving about in metal contraptions, they leave behind a trail of destruction as they plow down buildings and anything else in their path with deadly heat rays, making humans desperate to simply survive. Their sudden appearance and seemingly indestructible bodies leave humans utterly bewildered, with little hope of ridding themselves of these terrifying creatures from Mars.

    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

    If anyone can show us the history of the world, it is National Geographic. From the earliest times through 2005, the history of the world is described, outlined, and shown in full color. The book begins with a discussion of "prehistory" as an alternative to creation a section that spends about 30 pages guessing and assuming an alternative theory of early history. Actual recorded history is divided into 7 time periods: First Empires (ca. 7000 B.C.-200A.D), Ancient World (2500 B.C.-900 A.D.), Middle Ages (5th-15th Century), Early Modern Period (16th-18th Century), Modern Era (1789-1914), World Wars and Interwar Period (1914-1945), and the Contemporary World (1945-2005). Each of these sections is packed with information-rich text, photos, paintings, illustrations, maps, and short bios. There are two types of timelines in the book: a running timeline along the bottom of each page, which details the date of events and important people through history, and 4 fold-out timelines one of the Roman Empire, one for the Reformation, one chronicling the French Revolution, and one covering WWII. Point to note: there are photos and paintings that show nudity and dead bodies. 636 pgs, hc.

    Need project ideas for a unit study? Do you want your kids to do some hands-on activities with an Ancient Cultures lesson? This resource is here to help. This book contains twenty ideas covering all seven ancient wonders: Great Pyramid, Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Statue of Zeus at Olympia, Colossus of Rhodes, Temple of Artemis, Mausoleum of Helicarnassus, and the Pharos of Alexandria. There are informational factoids, as well as travel tips. (For example, if you visit a McDonald's in Egypt, you can order a McFalafel!). The project ideas vary, but all have good directions and how-to illustrations. As an example, when learning about pyramids, you can re-create the sledges used to move the giant stones using pencils and a heavy book. Kids are given the dimensions of the Great Pyramid, then challenged to calculate how long it would take to walk around the base. To solve, mark off twenty feet, time how long it takes to walk the distance, then do the math. Older kids could easily follow directions in here without parent help and share their finished product with you, but younger kids will need some guidance. If you don't have the time to find project ideas elsewhere, this is a great little book of ideas! ~ Sara

    Hugely complex, devastatingly global, and dramatically changing the face of the 20th Century, WWII is not an easy thing to capture between the covers of a book. However, DK pulls together an amazing array of original photographs, detailed battle maps, historical artwork, period timelines, and descriptive text into this volume that chronicles the history of the war – from 1919 to 1949. The rise of extremism and coming to power of the key players, as well as the underpinning causes that contributed to the war open the book. Chapters then look at the major operations, campaigns, and events that shaped the direction of the war. Other aspects of the war, such as home fronts, the Holocaust, entertaining the troops, and key figure bios are interspersed throughout. A comprehensive study aid that makes a great companion for any history course on WWII, this coffee-table-like book is also fascinating to simply browse through (though keep an eye on the clock if you have limited time – it is very easy to just keep turning pages!). 335 pgs, pb. – Zach
