Now more than ever, other cultures are affecting our everyday lives-and our children need to learn about the other countries of the world and their history. Susan Wise Bauer has provided a captivating guide to the history of other lands. Written in an engaging, straightforward manner, The Story of the World: History for the Classical Child; Volume 3: Early Modern Times weaves world history into a story book format. Who was the Sun King? Why did the Luddites go around England smashing machines? And how did samurai become sumo wrestlers? The Story of the World covers the sweep of human history from ancient times until the present. Africa, China, Europe, the Americas-find out what happened all around the world in long-ago times. Designed as a read-aloud project for parents and children to share together, The Story of the World includes each continent and major people group. Volume 3: Early Modern Times is the third of a four volume series and covers the major historical events in the years 1600 to 1850, as well as including maps, illustrations, and tales from each culture. 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 3 Grade Recommendation: Grades 3-8.

Susan Wise Bauer has written the Story of the World series through four volumes, this being the third. Each book is written as a novel, but filled with facts and historical figures that become lifelike through her pen. She has maps showing where each chapter in located and writes everything chronologically. That, to me, is the only downside of the books. You can be in China, then the next few chapters be in Japan, England, South America, then you're back in China again.
She also has Activity Guides to work with alongside these books, but they are best for primary aged children.
There is nothing else like them so they certainly fill a niche!
