I thought this book would be like the other "Complete Book of..." series, like the Math, Science, Phonics, Money ones we have, or have seen. But, it is NOT! It is a wonderful resource book for world history, but NOT a workbook sort like the others, it has NO reproducible things, NO activities at all. It is nice for a timeline sort of book with the major events. If you are looking for a timeline resource book this should have 5 stars, but since it is not along the lines of the other Complete series I think it is misleading of the publishers.

I was absolutley delighted when this book arrived. It wasn't quite what I expected - it was far better!! It is not a workbook like the other books in the "Complete Book" series, but rather, a book for self-education and reading enjoyment. It covers world history from the beginning to the present, in language that is just right for the Grade 4 to 8 age groups. Each page has colour pictures to add to the attractiveness of the book, and each open spread is a complete lesson in itself. If you want to give your children a good general knowledge of the world, its people, and what has gone on in all the ages before they were born, then this is the book for them. I'm so glad I bought this book.

I was a little disappointed that the book did not have any reading comp. questions to help you follow thru with what you had read. The book itself is full of great facts and events, but I felt it would have been better if they would have added some review or comp questions.

I bought this book to homeschool my 4th grader, and it was too difficult for him. I switched to the US History book from the same series, and that is working much better. If your child is an average student, then this book is more appropriate for grades 6-8 than the 4-8 listed.
As far as the series goes, I like the big pictures and the small sections. They make is easier to keep my child interested. I don't like that there are no test questions or real ways to see what he is retaining. I am having to create my own activities to go along with it and make my own tests and suppliment with library books, which is all very time consuming.

I do a lot of homeschooling, especially when the kids are out of school, so I am constantly looking for new materials that will engage them and sustain their attention. This book does all of that and more.

Well done book. Gives just enough information for my 4th grader to be a good "extra" text - and ties in with other things that happened about the time of the entry, so they can research related topics. My 4th grader is really enjoying this one!

We are happy with the book. Sure it doesn't cover EVERYTHING, but it gives us places to start that can be hard to find with other resources. Anything we want to explore further we can find by surfing the web or getting it at the library. We like to have a library for our 6 year old that has a little bit of everything, then we go from there. The book fits the bill.
