Product Description:

Publisher Description:

This well-illustrated reader exposes children to a wide variety of wholesome stories based upon famous historical events and personalities. Students sharpen their reading skills while they learn about Alexander the Great, King David, and many others.

This new third edition has been reformatted, updated, and expanded. It has been enhanced with poetry, extension activities, and full-color images.

Wholesome stories about various historical figures and events in the Bible, U.S. and world history are offered in this 265-page reader. Print is large for still-developing eyes. The book now features vocabulary words with definitions, comprehension questions and extension activities after each story. Answers to comprehension questions and instructions for extension activities are found in the Teacher's Manual. Student Exercises packet includes activities like completing sentences, comprehension, research, coloring and more. Test packet includes six multiple-choice tests on vocabulary and comprehension.




Teach reading skills using this God-honoring program filled with enriching and interesting reading material. Throughout this series, students read children- and history-oriented stories. Grade K emphasizes phonics instruction (2 books of single-syllable, short vowel, words; 2 books use multi-syllable words, long-vowel sounds). Grade 1 reinforces and applies these phonics skills. Grade 2 assumes students have a good grasp of phonics, so the series then shifts to progressively more challenging vocabulary and reading and emphasizes reading comprehension. Grade 3 stories span a broad history, including ancient and Bible. Grades 4-5 emphasize American history readings. Grade 6 highlights abridged and revised selections from classic authors. Some levels require Teachers' Manuals, student activities, and tests.

We loved the Christian Liberty Press readers! The Nature Reader helped my then reluctant 2nd grade reader start to *love* reading! Can't wait to check out this history reader as part of our Charlotte Masons style history.

Seems interesting like an interesting concept to teach history to elementary kids. Purchased the student workbook, to reinforce the stories instead of having the kids just write about them. We will see if it works for history class if not, we will add to our bedtime stories collection.

I'm tired of boring history curriculum in our homeschool. When I found this it was just what we were looking for. Interesting stories instead of dry facts and dates.

I feel that my children could have a History lesson as a read aloud.

I used this book for my now 5th grader when he was in 1st grade. It is a great biblical history book that captures their attention, Looking forward to using it again with my daughter.
