Engaging text for middle school history
I used this text for a group of 10-14 year-olds. It was well written, it kept my students engaged, and I really appreciated the effort to add 'human interest' stories to make history seem more real. Bauer doesn't just say that Shakespeare was a great writer, she retells the tale of Macbeth. The Activity Book was probably geared at a younger audience, however the Test Book was just right for my students. We are definitely going to use the other books in this series.

There are so many good reviews of this program already It's hard not to sound repetitive What I like most are the results my daughter (8yr) wants to keep reading and wants to find out more about the persons or the events She is understanding!Bravo for this book!Highly recommended!

This book is a great addition to our family library It gives a brief historical overview of the regions of the world during the specific time period of the Middle Ages Has pictures stories and trivia to add to each section She asks questions in each chapter that are thought provoking and engage you as a reader Although my children go to public school I was looking for something to add to their historical knowledge to help fill in the gaps they are not getting at school This book makes history interesting and also great to read as an adult I have read it aloud to my 5 and 9 year old and they get it and love it Looking forward to reading the other volumes

My kids love the stories to go along with each lesson, and I love that it has a little bit of map work for each lessons. They like it so much they ask if it's time for Story of the World yet!

I absolutely love the easy reading provided in these Story of the World Volumes 1-4. It was either, read these books or put up a time line in our homeschool space. We've read them before but this time, we will keep them! Great addition to any library.

As background material for our Veritas Press Middle Ages course, which focuses more on the European history. I wanted to also have information on the events in Asian, African, and South American areas of the world for a more complete knowledge.

I purchased this for the same reasons I purchased the Activity Book that goes with it. It was recommended by the Well-Trained Mind curriculum, and I liked the first volume of the series.

I love that this series covers history in chronological order, and in a way that is extremely easy for children to absorb. We were very happy with the 1st book and are looking forward to continuing with this one.

Book was recommended by my homeschool group. I really like the way it reads. It is informational but not like a boring textbook.
Dawn B on Sep 8, 2016
My daughter read Vol 3 in 4th grade last year and is now reading Vol 4 in 5th grade. I thought it would be good to have the whole series as she did not study Ancient or Middle Ages in early elementary.
