Publisher Description:

Bring The Mystery of History Volume I Second Edition to life! Through a CD Audio Book set (or downloadable MP3 files), you can listen to the professionally recorded stories through the voice of the author, Linda Lacour Hobar.

Category Description for Mystery of History:

This four-volume world history series provides students with a biblically-based and engaging overview of leading events and personalities from creation to the early 21st century. The series is chronological in structure while employing a number of classical education methods. Volume 1 examines Ancient History, Volume 2 the Middle Ages, Volume 3 the Renaissance, Reformation & Growth of Nations, while Volume 4 studies Revolutions to Rising Times (1708 - 2010). Each volume has from 28 to 36 weekly lessons. The essential resources at each level are the Student Text (Reader) and separate Companion Guide that includes research and writing exercises, map and timeline work, quarterly worksheets, tests and quizzes, and a wide variety of hands-on activities. The Guides (pdf files) are available, depending on the volume, in print form, as a CD, and/or in digital download format. Optional resources include audio versions of each text, as well as "super supplemental" CD's in PDF format that feature coloring pages, notebooking sheets and extra challenge/enrichment plans that can be printed at will.

Learning ancient history from a Bible-centered perspective is still the focus of the 3rd edition of Mystery of History, Vol. 1 However, with the 3rd edition, the format has been updated to be similar to Vol. IV. The biggest change is that it is changing from a paperback book to a hardcover with full color illustrations.  Short, interesting readings show how history fits together. What famous Bible figure lived when the Trojan Horse was built? Who lived in North America around the time that Jeremiah wrote Lamentations? Historically accurate with better chronological detail based on the work of James Ussher, the book tells you who walked the earth when and helps put each life in perspective around important events that happened worldwide. Mapping exercises with answers and simplified timeline directions are included along with suggestions for fun activities. Quarterly reviews and semester tests are provided. All student materials is reproducible for family use. Although this is intended for 4-8 graders, it is easily adapted to both older and younger students for an all-in-one history book. Assignments are included for all grade levels.

Access to the Companion Guide is provided with a digital download code. This guide includes PDF files of all of the reproducible material from the text including pre-tests, quizzes, exercises, worksheets, activity instructions, tests, outline maps, resource lists, appendix pages and more. A print version will be released in early 2020 as a separate item for those that prefer the print format.

I help teach my children's history class, and find the cd's very helpful to have for me to keep caught up with their lessons throughout their school year. The kids also enjoy listening to their lessons from time to time.
Jennifer L on Jul 12, 2019
My husband doesn't have time to read history with our son and me, so we listen in the car. That way, it reinforces what we're learning as a family and keeps my husband in the loop.

Heard from friends that these were good, and we're ready for something besides Story of the World.
Heather T on May 27, 2018
We just love how this intertwines the Bible (and in later volumes, church history) with historical events! This will be my second time teaching through this set and I was not disappointed with any of the curriculum. The CD's have been a wonderful addition as I can tidy or wash dishes while the kiddos listen. :) It is also easy to tailor this curriculum to different age groups so we can all be learning the same thing! I will have 2 elementary, 1 MS and 2 HS going through this together.
Rebekah O on Mar 21, 2018
We love this curriculum, but need to help reinforce through audio. Having this along in the car or playing while the kids read along will be a huge help!

I plan to play the audio CD in the car as we go places.

My son still has a few reading issues and while I LOVE to read from the Mystery of History, this will save us some time. It also helps for our son to be seeing the words while hearing them as well.
Dennis W on Jul 18, 2017
My child needs the audio input alongside the text for a more balanced method of learning tailored for him

The audio cd's are a simple and efficient way to expose my children to history from a Christian perspective which they have enjoyed.
Sarah R on Jan 14, 2017
For History class.
Monica B on Oct 11, 2016
Making my life a less busy during the day the audio CD set for volume 1 of Mystery of History fits the bill. I can pop it in and the kids can listen to the day's lesson either while working on the corresponding activity or just enjoying listening to the lesson. Rainbow Resource had the set much cheaper then any where else (who doesn't love saving a few extra bucks).
Heather Y on Oct 10, 2016
Audio seems like a great way to further solidify information for children who don't always learn their best using the traditional seat work approach. Maybe hearing the narration as she is reading along will help it sink in a bit better than reading alone.
Andrew S on Sep 1, 2016
Hoping to listen to this while driving or doing something else so we're not always reading. We need the balance of activity!
Robin H on Aug 29, 2016
To help my child retain more of what he reads.

ESTELLA G. on Jan 11, 2016
I love the way this series is set up, teaching about things going on at the same time in different parts of the world. The Christian perspective was important as well.
Bonnie M on Dec 21, 2015
I wanted a history curriculum that was Bible centered and God centered. I wanted to be able to create timelines and give my kids a good frame of reference as to how God has been working all throughout the times in history.
Greta H on Dec 18, 2015
I have an auditory learner and I've heard wonderful things about this history series.

Jacquiline S on Nov 13, 2015
I wanted a history curriculum that truly focuses on God's word. The other main one SOTW, just doesn't include enough Bible, it's like it's sprinkled in. This one truly incorporates it in the learning process. Plus, you can do history when your driving on the road, the kids just hear it - and get it. A+ program!

I have heard great things about the Mystery of History series. My son benefits by having the audio with the book.

Rebekah H on Sep 14, 2019
Can this audio edition be used with the 1st edition textbook?
User on Mar 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't know because I only purchased the audio edition to compliment my own history compilation. Over the years, I have purchased three different history audios: Mystery of History, Diana Waring's What in the World, and Story of the World. I recommend getting all three as each offers a well rounded history that my children have loved.
Can this be used with the first edition textbook?
A shopper on Mar 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I believe it can.
is this unabridged? Do I need the book as well or can we just listen to the cds?
A shopper on Jan 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: THe Audio CD for Mystery of History is word for word the author reading the lesson from the text. But, it does not include the activity suggestions at the end of each lesson, the pre tests,the post tests, or the maps, so if you want to do the complete curriculum and not just listen to the stories, you would need the text.

Very nice and very helpful for those who are audio learners
My son has difficulty with reading comprehension. The audio CD's are just what he needs to help him absorb the material. The audio is very well done.

Wonderfully written story, a bit too soothing voice
We listen to dozens of audio books a year. I was excited to add this to our library. I do love the material and find it to be well written. My only complaint would be, her voice is very soothing and does tend to relax our kids instead of drawing them in and catching their attention. Perhaps a different voice and I would give this 5 stars. The material is excellent. But it isn't our favorite to listen to. I'm forcing the kids to sit regardless, since we spent $40 on the set!

This is my all time favorite World History 1 course From the beginning of my homeschooling career I searched for the "perfect" history course that integrated Biblical history with the general world history that should be covered in a history course In my opinion no one does this better than Linda Hobar Well written with plenty of "extras" for adding to the daily lessons this course will help you put HIStory together in the most Biblical way All learning styles and multiple ages will benefit from this course if you take advantage to tailor it specifically for your child(ren) Teacher prep can be what you make of it You can really take this course to a higher level with lots of planning or you can slim it down to fit your learning needs With extra planning this can be used for middle and high school grades as well Great value for the money I recommend this course for everyone!
