The Story of the World: History for the Classical Child, Volume 2: The Middle Ages: From the Fall of Rome to the Rise of the Renaissance (Paperback Book/Activity Book Set)

"The hardest part of writing a word history is deciding what to leave out. In The Story of the Word, I have tried to keep history simple and straightforward by highlighting the major events, personalities, and national stories of the world's cultures, in (more or less) chronological order." — Susan Wise Bauer, Author

VERY GOOD: Both the book and the activity book are in excellent condition.


This volume is recommended for study with young children starting in Grade 2, but can be used for students as far as Grade 8.

The book has 42 chapters that cover the major events from around the world, and the activity book has corresponding review questions, outlining activities, composition questions, suggestions for additional reading, map work, art projects (including the proper colors for various countries’ flags), geography projects, and other types of project suggestions.

Another handy feature of the activity book is a pronunciation guide for many of the foreign names. The text itself offers a timeline that can be used to help put the events in proper historical context.

The author also presents ideas on multi-level teaching that help homeschooling parents present the volume to their children who may be spread across in the grades.

Not meant solely for homeschoolers, the volume can be used in a classroom setting as well. Bauer offers suggestions on how to incorporate the material.
