History on CD
I would recommend this for the busy mom. I know it is better to read aloud, but I am currently folding clothes while we listen to the stories of the world.

I did not discover Story of the World until my children were in 4th and 7th grade We had always used unit studies and so I felt that they knew a lot of history but did not have a grasp of events in chronological order We have been hooked on these audio books since that year We listen to a chapter and then we use our Kingfisher Encyclopedia of History and other books from our personal library and the public library to dig a little deeper I always tell homeschoolers that SOTW is great as a stand alone if you have children in younger grades and it is also great as a "jumping off place" if your children are older It provides an outline that keeps auditory learners focused If you have visual learners I would recommend the book rather than the audiobook Kinesthetic learners will benefit from the short chapters and the activity books Since my children were older and were accustomed to unit studies I did not use the activity books The activity books are truly for younger students as is recommended We also use a timeline to help us remember important people You may want to purchase plastic CD cases at an office supply store ($7) so that you can easily use the CDs

I have purchased one of these each year for my husband for Christmas. He listens to them on his commute to work. Then we use them for our home school when appropriate.

This gives a great overview of history. Jim Weiss does an excellent job reading. He is enjoyable to listen to!
AnnMarie T on Oct 11, 2017
We like to listen to the books when we have long car drives. It lets us take school on the road.

My eight year old daughter listens to the Vol. 2 Audiobooks most nights while she goes to sleep. She loves listening to her history over and over.

My son loved listening to SOTW Vol 1 & Vol 2 audiobooks!
Patricia on Apr 24, 2017
We read the Story of the World books aloud, but it is always fun to supplement with a different person reading. Often we will listen through the entire volume all at once. Then it may be a few months until we get back to studying that chapter, but we already have an idea of the content.
Kara W on Mar 28, 2017
My whole family enjoys this series.

great for the car. the kids stop what they're doing and listen. he has a soothing, interesting voice.
Michele C on Jul 6, 2016
More convenient to listen to the stories on CD.
Lisa T on Jun 23, 2016
Sometimes we read the books aloud and sometimes we listen to them at home or in the car. I love having this option.
Nancy T on Jun 21, 2016
This is a wonderful resource! It allows us to listen to our history lessons as we're driving or the kids can color their corresponding map while listening to the lesson. It's freed me up as a mom!
Heidi B on Jun 2, 2016
It's the spine for Build Your Library Grade 3.
Wendy H on May 25, 2016
So we could continue our history lesson while traveling in the car.
Joshua D on Apr 26, 2016
Great way to teach history. I keep these CD's in the van to listen to when ever the kids & are are driving. Kids can retain information very easily. Been using these Cd's for 6 years. Highly recommend.

Requested by family for Christmas
Kayla A P on Dec 5, 2015
The kids love to listen while they do legos.
Karyn S on Nov 27, 2015
The best program for engaging multiple aged children in history. Detailed enough to have a grasp of the events yet concise enough for lessons to remain short to foster a habit of attention.
Carrie M on Nov 16, 2015
