We love it!
Review by Mary
We absolutely love Angela O'dell's history curriculum! It's from a biblical perspective and it's not a boring textbook.
Review by Donna
Our favorite series
Loved this book that puts together world history with a Biblical focus
Review by Kala
We used this book for 6th grade level history and it was fantastic! The teacher guide had excellent activity pages to reinforce the reading content from the student book.
Very thorough
Review by Monica
As with the other books in the series, I loved reading along with my son. There is so much included in this series that I was not taught growing up. One of our favorite sections is the part where it tells you what is going on in the United States at the same time as what is happening elsewhere in the world. It really helps to put the whole picture together.
Review by Kam
Each level of The World's Story is absolutely beautiful...beautifully written and pictured. We love anything by Angel O'dell and could not be happier with MB history.
Review by JennyMac
This is an excellent history curriculum. The chapters are visually appealing, and rich in information. This could certainly be used just as a history read-aloud book, but when followed up with the work in the teacher's guide, it is a firm history foundation. I didn't do parts 1 and 2 with my kids, but Angela tries to catch us up by referencing/recalling certain things that were covered in those texts. Mrs. O'Dell does such a great job with history and making it engaging for the students.
Great Series, Found Mistake
Review by Sandi
We are nearing the end of this entire series. Our daughter has really enjoyed it. I asked her to write about her favorite story from this last book, and she chose to write about Corrie Ten Boom. My husband is Dutch, and as a family we were able to visit The Netherlands three years ago. We, of course, visited the Corrie Ten Boom house. The book states that Corrie’s house was/is in Amsterdam, but it’s actually located in Haarlem. We also noticed Corrie Ten Boom’s name is written with a small “t” when the Dutch capitalize it. Of course, out of the entire book, this is the only thing that jumped out at us. We are going to miss this series and wish the author would do one for High Schoolers.
Beautifully written
Review by Ashley
Coming to the end of the 3rd book now, and have loved all 3 of the texts. This is my favorite part of the curriculum. In order to help him focus, I read the text to my son. I have thoroughly enjoyed all 3 books, and learned a lot myself!
Son loved it
Review by Sara

Review by Courtney
