This combined volume of all four Time Traveler books focuses on everyday life in various periods in history. Like the Book of World History it contains interesting text and captivating illustrations (in typical Usborne style!).
So, how is it different? The World History book goes through history, looking at different civilizations during each period. The Omnibus focuses in on specific time periods in history and examines in detail the lives of fictional characters who could have lived during that time. My (then) 12 year old daughter recommended reading through the World History volume first, then the Time Traveler's Omnibus to "zoom in" on certain historical periods. She says this book will "give you a better understanding and appreciation of how it was to live during that time - it's the next best thing to being there."

As a child, the travel map we used had a picture atlas on the exterior. I spent so much time pouring over that cover that I still remember, as a result, which states produce oil. Hereâ€™s an opportunity to provide that experience for your elementary children. The actual atlas is in the first 24 pages. The remaining pages are filled with over 350 stickers to place in the appropriate atlas location. Children can easily find the correct location by finding the â€œshadowedâ€ picture of the sticker. But itâ€™s not just pictures here! Each map has information and details regarding animals, culture and geographical locations in small, clear print. Maps include one of the world; Western and Eastern Europe; North and South Africa; Western and Eastern Asia; North and Central America; South America; Australasia and Oceania; the Antarctic and Antarctica. End the book with a brief world quiz to test your new knowledge. Once done, youâ€™ll have a picture atlas to continually use! Just wonderful! 9 3/8â€ x 12â€, 34 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

This inventive, colorful book is divided in two sections: story writing and instruction on writing fiction (cleverly called the Story Writing Toolkit). The writer is guided to write 20 different stories on the well-designed pages. Story-specific directions, tips, and such things as interesting vocabulary are cleverly included in the margins. Story types vary, too; write a comic strip, a story about time travel or a tale about animal adventures - or finish one the book has started for you. The Tool Kit (15 pages at the back) includes tips and instructions on plot and character development, as well as creating engaging titles, settings and descriptions. The book could serve as a portfolio of your childâ€™s creative writing, maybe even a great keepsake. A great way to get your studentâ€™s creative juices flowing. Spiral bound, but exterior binding covers this for added durability. 8â€ x 9.75â€, 95 pp, hc. ~ Ruth
