Interesting reading but definitely a book for older teens.

I'm returning to homeschooling after years away, but my oldest learned elementary history using Bauer's 'Story of the World' books and supplemental materials. The first three of those were quite palatable, even for a kid who didn't particularly love reading. And my favorite was the first, Story of the Ancient World.

So now, of course, I turn to Bauer again. And conveniently for me, she has created higher level versions of her original series. I'm happy to give them a try.

I love ALL THINGS Susan Wise Bauer and since we're studying ancient history in Classical Conversations this year, this will be the perfect supplemental book!

To supplement my daughter's world history curriculum.

My 9th grader will be using History of the Ancient World as the spine for her history study as recommended in The Well Trained Mind.
Lillian S on May 24, 2018
We are interested in adopting a new curriculum for 9th - 12th grade history. We are hoping that Susan Wise Bauer will complete the scope and sequence with a Modern World History text.
Terry C on May 16, 2018
It was recommended by one of your specialists for my 9th grader who has a special interest in Ancient History. I am looking forward to reading it as well :)

Think history is boring and dry? You haven't read any of Susan Wise Bauer's books! Although I will use this for my high schooler, the truth is I bought this book for myself. It's one I will read and keep on the shelf as a reference.

We've used the SOTW series and found Susan Wise Bauer's writing to be an enjoyable walk through history so we decided to continue on.

Love anything by Susan Wise Bauer. It will be my high schooler's freshman history text.
Carle B on May 7, 2016
We really enjoyed the style of Story of the World, and this is written the same way but for an older audience.
Aaron D on Apr 24, 2016
It is important that everyone know, and understand world history, but it doesn't have to be dry and lifeless as most history books read. Younger children have experienced history in chronological order with fun and excitement through reading Story of the World, and while it certainly has been beneficial for young adults, it lacked the deeper substance to captivate young ( and old ) adults. The author has filled that void with this series. SOTW just grew up!!!

Are there any sexual connotations?
User on Jun 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There has been at least one instance that has been brought to our attention. Accordingly, we have added a caution about "mature content" to our description.
Is this book written from a religious standpoint?

History of the Medieval World: From the Conversion of Constantine to the First Crusade
BEST ANSWER: While the author has a background in religious studies, (according to her website she holds "a Master of Divinity from Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia"), the book itself is not religious in tone. She does explore the influence of various religions on the shaping of history, rather than avoiding the topic, but does so in an unbiased, factual manner.
