Great history with an approachable, but not dumbed down, style that my eighth graders liked very much -- many in spite of their initial plan to declare the book a "drag."
captivating, easy to read, full of wonderful anecdotes, and pictures. They have a secular approach to history, with attention to details so well put together I read them ahead of the kids just for the fun of it! This first volume starts from the beginning with the origin of earth and ends with human settlements in North America (about 1000 years ago). These books are comparable in tone and excellence to the Joy Hakim series of historical science books (Aristotle Leads the Way) which we are using as well.
