I bought this for my daughter who loves to draw, thinking it would be a great addition to our history curriculum. Thankfully, I only bought one from the series, as I was not that impressed. The idea of the book is great, and the activities are also very good. Unfortunately, there are too few of them to make the book worth the price. I would pay $4-$5 for this, but feel I was ripped off at $12.

Yay! We can combine 3 subjects! Great supplement to homeschool art, history, and cursive handwriiting.

Each of the 5 sections has several pictures to draw with step by step instructions. Then a page of cursive copy work. The pictures are very detailed and beautiful. The copy work is a short historical report.
The books are written by a pastor's wife and the copy work has some Christian references. Other books in the series include biblical history.

Works great with the classical approach, Well Trained Mind, unit study, Story of the World, History Odyssey and Charlotte Mason methods as well as any other methods where you want to combine history, handwriting, and art. This is more advanced drawing than the, also awsome, Draw Write Now, Book 1: On the Farm-Kids and Critters-Storybook Characters (Draw-Write-Now) series and is a perfect continuation to it.

This has a bibliography in the back so you could easily make a history unit or unit study out of it.

Sections include: Hanging Gardens, Greece, The Great Wall of China, Hannibal, and Rome. Color illustrations. 60+ pages.

These books are written by a Christian author and promote a Christian world view.

More books in the series are:

Draw and Write Through History Creation through Jonah
Draw and Write Through History: Greece and Rome
The Vikings, the Middle Ages, and the Renaissance
The World of the 1800's
The 20th Century

I love this book!! The drawing lessons are very clear & easy to follow, and relate beautifuly to the topic material. The content is not overtly Christian, making it a wonderful integrated art & history resource for secular homeschoolers as well. My only complaint is that is rather short (62 pages) for the broad time period of history it covers. I wish it were longer. I would not have minded paying more for more content, since what is presented is outstanding.

This is a fun way to present History, especially for children who enjoy drawing. I supplemented this book with some fun reading material that goes along with Ancient Greece and Rome. Rather than have my son copy the written portions, I have him summarize, in his own words, at the top or bottom of his drawing page. Overall, an excellent product.
