This is a wonderful book I majored in history at college and I've referred to this book again and again over the years I even designed a world history unit study for my children using this as a resource which they enjoyed more than traditional textbooks It works for K-8 and as a supplement for high school The contents are in chronological order (very helpful for history) and it is easy to find information on the major civilizations

I need this book for History Odyssey Level 2 Ancients. It is cheaper from here than from Amazon!
Melody C on Aug 21, 2017
I am creating our own World History course for the next few years, and this will serve as a reference/timeline point. I chose this over the Usborne because it has a running timeline across the top of every page and spends more time on each subject with less visual busyness. NOTE: Google Books has previews of this and other books to help you decide what to buy.

I chose this to be a supplement to our history lessons. We use Story of the World curriculum and this was recommended in that book.

Heather L on Aug 17, 2016
Love this book. I sold my older copy thinking we would use other book sources, and here I am re-purchasing because nothing provides a better background look than Kingfisher. Plus, the objects they choose to display make my kids wonder and ask more questions. Curiosity is a great tool for attention!

This encyclopedia has been on our family's wish list, and when we saw a bargain copy we couldn't pass it up.
Heather R on Apr 4, 2016
The Story of the World history curriculum uses this book as an additional resource and lists exact pages that correspond to each lesson. Our library didn't have it and I figured it was worth the money to add it to our personal library.

Kristie G on Aug 10, 2017
Can you please tell me what year this was revised?
Kari E on May 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I bought mine in August, doesn't use the word revised. It says "this updated edition published in 2012". Hope that helps!
Is this a hardcover book?
A shopper on Feb 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is hardcover. My daughters (ages 4 and 8) refer to it often. We have used it in addition to The Story of the World.
  • Description

    Product Description

  • It's all in one book (491 pgs) making it a handy reference for studies of any and all time periods.
  • The paper is nice and thick, designed to tolerate years of "wear and tear".
  • Chronologically-arranged and cross- referenced articles.
  • Over 2000 colorful illustrations, including photographs and charts as well as annotated maps.
  • A handy reference section at the back of the book that has lists of national leaders throughout history; wars; and explorations/discoveries.
  • The comprehensive indexing makes it easy to quickly find the information or related articles you need.
  • This book replaced the old Kingfisher Illustrated History of the World a number of years ago. Although similar, there are some differences in this new book. Curriculums that refer to the original book may not correspond exactly to the replacement version. We think this will be a volume you will use again and again, not just for world history studies, but for unit studies of all kinds.
