Are you looking for an exciting and God-centered approach to HiStory? No that is not a typo Michelle Miller has written just such a book Her premise is that history is His (God's) Story How we approach HiStory is critical in order to understand it We must ask the Big 2 Questions as we study: Who is God? and Who then is mankind? Michelle makes this easy with her commentary and endless list of books Don't settle for dry sketchy textbooks when you can offer a smorgasboard of living books to engage your children's appetite for more Mrs Miller has divided her books into main topics with lists of fiction biographies videos and activity books for the hands-on learner Each main topic includes her commentary before diving into a "yummy" diet of literature You will not find twaddle here either Each book has been carefully chosen and will sometimes have a description We were able to find many of the books at our public library thus saving expense there For those we could not find we used one of the suggested "spines" listed Often notebook pages were done with a picture and narration of an event or person and added to our History notebook We also included maps and pictures of crafts or field trips The author also includes six Think Write activities interspersed throughout the guide They help the student to think then write Biblical answers to issues of a historical time period Sample answers are included in the appendix You as the parent are in control of how quickly you cover the topics and how in depth you decide to go not the curriculum Skip over the topics you have spent longer amounts of time on in previous studies and dig in to those that capture your children's enthusiasm for HiStory We have enjoyed the rich selection of literature in our own family making history exciting and memorable

We used all three of the American History for Young Students books this past year We are schooling children between the ages of 5 and 12 and every one of them enjoyed the reading and were able to understand the material Teacher preparation included reading ahead getting project materials ready and finding books to read together You pretty much have to have the Light and Glory for children series to use this program We used the program with auditory visual and tactile learners because of the reading discussion art projects we did and other hands on projects It is necessary to have access to lots of books to supplement with and to have plenty of reading time I loved the Christian worldview of this program and the candid clear way it explains history I have already ordered the other TruthQuest books to continue on our journey through history However I plan to use Diana Waring's What in the World's going on Here CD's in combination with this program I would recommend it for any family who likes living books and spending time sharing stories and ideas with each other

The other reviews have pretty much said it all I just wanted to add that this history curriculum is the one that my son and I look back on with the fondest memories We both LOVED it! I bought a different curriculum this year (the grass is always greener) but can't wait to switch back to Truthquest next year This is one purchase you WON'T regret!

This is a new curriculum for me to use. I like the Christian worldview, exhaustive content, and reasonable price. I will use it to purchase books to supplement or round out the next years study of American History.
