Mom's review: This is a terrific, fully illustrated overview of the history of the world, from the origins of life to the present day. About 20% of the book is devoted to early natural history (evolution, dinosaurs, etc.) and the rest covers human history from hunter-gatherers through the end of the 20th century. The text is informative and challenging but not too complex to be understood by younger children (I'd say 6 and up). We have several children's world history encyclopedias, and this one is our favorite -- we can curl up and enjoy it like a story.
The illustrations are very nice and just enough information is given per subject. We are using it in conjunction with The Story of the World series, by Susan Wise Bauer.
I highly recommend it for homeschoolers, but also for school children, to supplement textbooks, (which seem to be rather poorly done these days).
He loves this book, though. He loves the pictures and he likes the information. The sets of 2 pages are just the right length for him to understand.
He is 6, almost 7, by the way.
