I've been using this timeline with my children for about 5 years now, and it's still going strong. We use the timeline figures from Homeschool in the Woods, and the kids absolutely love putting them in their Book of Time. The spiral binding of the book is very handy, and allows the book to lie flat. It is also a fairly large book, which allows for many figures to be placed from the same time period. This becomes important at the "busy" historical periods, when there are many notable people and events to commemorate in the timeline. My only complaint is that the cover, made of the same heavy paper as the rest of the book, has fallen off. But now that I'm going to buy another timeline to use with another child, I am unimpressed with the competition, which either uses a binder format, a CD-ROM to print, a wall chart, or a hardbound book format. None of these seem to lend themselves to the ease of use of the spiral-bound Book of Time.

I personally thought this was a HUGE WASTE of my money. I know several are making good reviews about it, but I tihnk it is for convenience more than anything. I personally would have just bought a cheap notebook and written in the dates and times if I had known that is all this is. I thought certain things were "filled in" for you. NOPE.

So....to clarify.....this is a spiral bound book....with pages in it.....with a date at the left of the first page a line, and then an ending date on the right of the opposite page. That's all it is....honestly. So......I think many who are homeschooling on a budget could just grab a notebook when they have school sales at Wal-Mart and do this on their own!!

I would NOT BUY THIS AGAIN! EVER!!!! The concept itself is worth maybe $1.00 to me, the heavy pages??? So what??? Are they honestly charging that much more just because it has thick pages???? SO NOT WORTH YOUR MONEY!!!!

I thought I'd save money and make my own timeline. My flimsy spiral notebook eventually lost pages, looked ratty, and fell apart. When my 16 yr. old daughter was in 4th grade we finally bought a Sonlight timeline. It became not just a history journal, but a treasured keepsake. Because she enjoys reviewing the pages she's helped to create, she now knows history very well. No other homeschool purchase has been so well used. We're still adding to it. By the time she graduates the timeline she loves will have cost less than $3/ year. Pretty reasonable for a tool that's still working for us, and no, it's not even close to falling apart.

This us a great teaching tool to help with history. Each page allows you to label each page the way you want to show specific eras, leaders, inventors or anything else that you want to show. This format allows you to show your kids how these events overlap to show relations between people and events in a graphic format that you can work on to update and refine over years. This us a valuable homeschool tool and also valuable for anyhistiry student. Enjoy! You will not regret this purchase.

I bought a used copy of this and am thrilled that I get to add to someone else's work. They studied a section of history that we did not study and aren't going to study this year either. These timelines are heirlooms. You can start on them in Kindergarten and add to them every year until it is packed too full to add any more. As you add your notes you see the others you wrote and are reminded about the previous things you learned.

This is the easiest timeline book we have used. We are using it with the available stickers and it really helps to give a visual of historical events.
