My kids LOVE learning about history from SOTW. We have listened to the entire series as an audiobook in the car and the kids want to go back and read it at home.
Theresa S on Oct 20, 2017
Our past curricula always seems to stop around the civil war. I’m getting this to complete this year’s Memoria Press’s Story of the 13 Colonies and the Great Republic which also doesn’t cover the modern stuff.
Kelly J on Oct 5, 2017
We have used Vol. 1, 2 and 3 and love them, so decided to use Vol. 4 as well, can't leave a review on it because we haven't used it yet, but I'm sure it will be just as good.

Amy K on Jan 16, 2016
Great series and my daughter loves reading world history chronologically. I would recommend beginning these in third grade and read one each year through sixth grade. We use the test book as a workbook to be completed each week as the chapters are read.

Children need to understand where we came from and the history of the world tells an amazing story.
Kristina S on Jan 15, 2016
Susan Wise Bauer does a fantastic job of teaching thorough history through story telling. My children have loved listening to me read from her first volume as history comes to life through the pages of her book.

Theresa S on Oct 20, 2017
Does it give students a list of living books to read along with the guide or to supplement?
A shopper on Mar 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi! The Story of the World texts are sort of living books in themselves. They do not include a booklist.

I own both the SOTW texts and their activity guides, which I bought seperately. The guides have books to find to go along with each chapter of the text. I used those during our first pass through the SOTW series.

We are now on our second trip through the series, and I'm using the book lists contained in another book by Susan Wise Bauer, The Well-Trained Mind. The chapter on history includes a very extensive booklist for each period in history.

I hope that helps!
