Excellent world history following a Biblical timeline
Review by Yolonda
We loved World’s Story 1. Wonderfully written and goes through history following the Bible. My kids retained a lot due to the writing style. It gives as much information as any typical text book but in a more interesting format.

Our Daughter Loves This Series
Review by Heather
Our middle daughter loves the World History Series. She's asked to continue with Master Books because she loves the story format. It's easy to read and the pictures are fantastic.
Great history curriculum
Review by Shanna
My daughter and I greatly enjoyed this curriculum. It really brings history to life and I love that it has you read scripture out of the bible in some areas to really clarify and show what is being taught, and how it all ties to God. I highly recommend this to families that want an interesting, as well as biblical, view of world history.
Review by Laura
We are liking this history curriculum. We finished the America's Story 1-3 prior years then moved to this one for 6-8th. Master Books history is one of the best.
Grabs student attention

Thought I was going to have to struggle with history as the student dislikes the subject. But the way the history narrative is presented as well as the pictures really grabs his attention.
