Review by Raquel
Great history books. Very engaging my students are learning so much
Review by Lindsey
I love how this walked through the entire history of the world, including from a Biblical time line and what is happening through out the world in early World history.

We love this series and the author's podcast. It's a history from a biblical perspective and it's not a boring textbook. Win-win!

Great Charlotte Mason History Textbook
Review by Kristy
If you're looking for a textbook that's Charlotte Mason inspired, this is a great choice. We finished up the ancient history curriculum this year and my boys enjoyed it. The text is interesting and well-written, and the photos are plenteous and make the book engaging.
Review by Angela
My son really enjoys the readings in this book. He finds it engaging and interesting.
Great Ancient History Resource
Review by Margaret
My kids are enjoying Ancient history this year. I am excited about having a great, easy to use resource to cover this time period this time around. The first time we did Ancient History, I had to piece what we did as I did not like the resources available. Love the pictures and the narrative style. We add tons of other independent reading along with this as well, but we love having a solid resource to center our studies with. I love that it is from a Biblical perspective. My kids love the writing style.
Review by Kat
My oldest loves History. We can't wait to dive into World's Story together! This is our 2nd year homeschooling with Master Books. I tell every HSing parent I meet about how wonderful the books are. My children are learning, improving, and growing in their Faith.
