My 7 year old will listen.
My 7 year old son prefers listening to this than listening to me read aloud. We listen to one chapter each school day. The chapters are 5-10 minutes in length. We also use the narration questions in the study guide, my son is really retaining the information! Its short and effective. Its not his favorite thing but not much complaining.

Wonderful history curriculum on audiobook
The Story of the World is a wonderful history curriculum and I love the audio book option. I actually use it in conjunction with Layers of Learning. It gives me a break and the kids can listen to it while they color or do other arts and crafts. We also listen to it in the car on longer drives. They really enjoy it.

Great AudioBook!
Great overview of history and well written for kids! We spend a lot of time driving in the car and having this as an audiobook has been a lifesaver. My kids love listening to it and I feel good knowing we have still done some history even on busy days!

Listening Over and Over
Every time we are in the van, my children practically demand to list to these CDs! They have learned more about history from these CDs than I expected. They are fun to listen to, and I have learned things too! Wonderfully, they aren't annoying to listen to over and over and over and over...

Jim Weiss, the reader, is easy to listen to. My children are attentive to these stories. We listen to the audiobook in the car and follow up with the information with the activity book.

great for dyslexics
love this set with the quizzes. Wish we had never gotten the text too because it is so good to be able to replay and listen.

First offare there any busy homeschooling moms out there? This is the product for you I had heard about The Story of the World from other moms and thought it sounded really neat I started out with the print version and soon became overwhelmed with life and found that we were not getting around to it as much as I would have liked even though I loved the idea of it With five little ones in this house it is hard to get around to getting dressed most of the time so when I discovered that they had an audio version of this product I pounced It was the best thing I ever did! Now the kids can listen to a chapter or two while doing the coloring sheets or the maps while I feed the baby or quickly do the dishes They are loving it and I love listening while I get something accomplished at the same time! What a great concept! Then we can all come together afterwards and discuss what we learned do a project or two and I love to supplement by finding videos or snippets on youtube to give them a visual of what they just heard It is great fun! I love learning it too What a treat instead of a chore And what is great too is that all of the names of the people cities and such are properly pronounced on the cd instead of me trying to muddle through the pronunciation I highly recommend this product to busy homeschooling families Listen to it at home or on the run in the car In this format it is something that you can get around to amidst your busy schedule!

I originally bought the Story of the World Ancient Times (Volume 1) audiobook to play in the car while on vacation It quickly became my seven-year-old daughter's favorite audiobook She plays it all day sometimes turning it on before she even eats breakfast With all this repetition the resulting learning has been phenomenal both with concepts and details When we went to the library to get a book out on Alexander the Great she pointed to a picture of Alexander's horse and said its name much to the amusement of the librarian If I have a history question I ask her first -- she knows more than I doI used the audiobook without the printed book or activity book so there was no work involved for me I did purchase the Usborne Internet-Linked Encyclopedia of the Ancient World so that she could browse it and see pictures and text related to what she was hearing She has taken a big interest in the book due to having already heard related storiesIf your child is an auditory learner this audiobook is a way you can extend the learning time while finding valuable time to do chores etc It is definitely worth the money for both learning value and time-saving valueMy experience with the Story of the world Ancient Times audiobook has been so good that I'm getting ready to purchase the Middle Ages (volume 2) And I plan to use the other two volumes in the series too

we have the books but I've heard children enjoy listening to the CD's
User on May 24, 2018
We have all the books, but sometimes I just need a break from reading aloud. So, these make that a nice change. I can allow some of my kids to listen while I work individually with others.

After reading the first two volumes myself aloud to my students, I decided to use the audio books with the 3rd and 4th volumes and found it incredibly helpful. Now that we're going through them again, I'm excited to use the audiobook all the way through.

We love SotW but need the CD for traveling
Lindsey M on Jun 22, 2017
I have borrowed this from the Library and like it so much I am purchasing it. Tells of ancient history in a story-like style, covering all of the early civilizations with good but simple descriptions that do not overburden child with too much detail.

Love Story of the World! The narrator's voice is perfect for the material and we really enjoy listening to it so I can listen and focus too without trying to stumble through pronunciation of those difficult names of people and places.
