Having used Veritas History cards and resources for the last few years, I was overjoyed to receive a copy of their new book for review. My kids and I are really enjoying this book! It is a fun, fictional tale of two boys who end up discovering a notebook, which sends them traveling through time on an overview of God's story throughout history. Now, I will say that this book would not, in my opinion, be able to serve as a main resource or spine (such as say, Story of the World, or the Famous Men...series).
However, in our experience, this captivating and fun story book serves as a perfect in-between. As a whole family studying a certain time period, you may have older students who are ready for the meaty, hearty books that Veritas recommends (which is one of my favorite things about them!!). However, for your younger, or in-between students (I am thinking early elementary, all the way up to junior high), this book is a great "gap-filler". It can easily draw the children in to an overview of the major events covered by the history cards, while still capturing their attention and not overwhelming them with too many facts and dates (although those are in here too). And along the way, there are many useful and helpful charts, maps, and helpful tools to help make the information more easily understood.
All in all, this is a great resource, and a fun addition to any family's study of chronological history. You do not need to be using the Veritas history curriculum or cards for this book to make sense. It is appealing as a stand-alone addition to any chronological study of God's work throughout history.

Captivatingly written, this book is a great review of our chronological history studies. It is such an engrossing, yet easy read, neither I nor my tween and teenage sons wants to put it down! I especially appreciate the unabashedly Christian worldview presented in the story. Although I'm sure this works well with Veritas Press history, I have found this to be an excellent supplement to our current history curriculum - Mystery of History. Can't wait for volume 2!

What a great way to introduce your students to an accurate account of both secular and Biblical history side by side in a fun and captivating way! A homeschooling family shared this book with us (for my daughter) and I am more than a third of the way through the book in a day and loving it! I remember hating history classes growing up -- just dry boring facts and a whole lot of memorization for what seemed to be no reason. This is so not boring and just plain fun! You can get the most reluctant history student actively engaged and asking for more! I give this book 5 stars and can't wait for volume two...there is a volume two -- right?! :)

I love how this book incorporates the Bible and theological themes into history. It shows His Story. The characters are engaging and the time-traveler element gives suspense and interest. The boys ask the kinds of questions that kids will ask. I am a homeschool mom and have read this. We will be reading it as a family too. I wish they also would put out an audio book of this so we could listen to it in the car. Anxiously awating the second volume!
