This is simple history written for folks who don't care whether they believe truths or untruths, unfortunately.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book because all of the other books that I found were about 400 pages. They weren't concise and to the point which, is what I needed. This book is only a mere 130 pages in length. The pages are all neatly color coded and range from Ancient History (4000BC-AD 500) to The Modern World (1700-Present). I used this book as an adult to review the major points in World History. It's really a book meant for a younger population (ages 9 and up) but, when you don't have that much time to study or really need it as a quick reference it will the job with ease. I used it to help me pass the CSET which is a teaching requirement.

The organization of the book is fantastic! Color coded edges to the right let you know what era in history you're reading about and which items pertain to that specific era in time. The images are colorful and the book is abundant with them. They have clear bold titles which help you remember what you're reading about. Also, at the end of a specific item there is a mini-summary to help you remember the major points that were talked about.

This book is great and in fact, all of the "Everything You Need To Know About..." series are all pretty much the same and are incredibly knowledgeable and specific. You can brush up on the major points in World History or use it as a teaching reference or a parent reference for the home. Trust me, your kids/students will love this book and they'll love you for buying it for them.

Format: Paperback
This book is loaded with historical inaccuracies! I can't imagine how Scholastic's editing department let this get by. You do not want to give this book to children without a knowledgeable adult standing by to correct it. Here are just two examples, both found on the same page. It says the Parthenon was built "in the fifth century A.D." It should have said B.C. or BCE. And it says that Athens and Sparta "were located on the Peloponnesian Peninsula." Actually, only Sparta is in the Peloponnese -- Athens is not.

This book, though it is suggested reading for 4th to 6th graders, was helpful to me. Not only am I an adult, I am in the process of getting certified to teach high school social studies. It provided me the essentials that I must cover for any class (other than at the college level). The page layout is excellent; the variety in print type and color as well as maps and pictures made it a"fun" reading and learning experience. I highly recommend it for students, parents and social studies teachers.

Format: Paperback
History can be a boring and tasking subject to learn in school for most kids. But what child wouldn't want to learn about the first written language or who started the studies of science and math? Well, okay still seems a little boring. How about the Ancient Indians who wrote fables and stories? Kids will have fun learning about doctors, musicians and dances from 322 B.C.

Empires and rulers in ancient times created havoc amongst the peoples. Slave trades started in 1441. In Africa, 1948 Apartheid forced people into white and non-white racial groups. Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata were two famous heroes of the Mexican Revolution. Wars and revolution have caused up-rises around the globe in history.

A modern timeline of world events is listed from the 1700's to the present day. Young readers will learn about Neil Armstrong the first astronaut to walk on the moon. Martin Luther King Jr. and his freedom marches, Indira Gandhi the first woman prime minister of India, along with so many more can be found here too.

The glossary of terms in the back will have young readers mastering history in no time.

My children are much younger, but they are learning a song of the history timeline. They can reference this book's pictures to see what they are singing about and make mental connections.
