    • Wonderful as a read aloud too

      They are very helpful to me too.! Information is given in a more story like fashion encouraging listening and increasing enjoyability. Maps accompany many of the the "stories" enabling younger students to better comprehend the time and events.

    • Excellent volume for history

      This book is extremely easy to read, but packed with information. I bought them for my 10 year old, but my 6 year old even enjoys them (I read them at storytime to her). I've bought all four volumes and they are all excellent.
