    Where was the Crystal Palace? Who was the Sick Man of Europe? And how did cow fat start a revolution?

    Now more than ever, other countries and customs affect our everyday lives—and our children need to learn about the people who live all around the world. Susan Wise Bauer has provided a captivating guide to the history of modern nations all around the world. Written in an engaging, straightforward manner, the final volume of the popular Story of the World series weaves world history into a storybook format, covering major historical events in the years 1850-2000. From the Middle East and China to Africa and the Americas—find out what happened all around the world in the last century and a half. Designed as a read-aloud project for parents and children to share together, The Story of the World includes the stories of each continent and people group.

    Each Story of the World volume provides a full year of history study when combined with the Activity Book, Audiobook, and Tests—each available separately to accompany each volume of The Story of the World Text Book. Volume 4 Grade Recommendation: Grades 3-8.

    • Excellent History Curriculum

      I used Story of the World two years ago for my 5 and 7 year old for our homeschooling. This past year I tried a different curriculum and it was just not suited for us. We will go back to using Story of the World in 2010-2011 and are looking forward to it. Well rounded and thorough with the workbook activities.
