Story of the World



Story of the World curriculum, written by Susan Wise Bauer, is a homeschool history curriculum written from ancient times until the present...Africa, China, Europe, and the Americas...

These books are very engaging and exciting for children to read on their own, or for a parent to read aloud to their children. It is a great introduction of the world's history in story form.

Susan Wise Bauer a homeschool graduate, is a college professor and homeschooler mom. She is the author or co-author of several well-regarded books including "The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home".

  • Volume One: Ancient Times

  • Volume Two: The Middle Ages

  • Volume Three: Early Modern Times

  • Volume Four: The Modern Age

You can purchase a Story of the World Audiobook (7 CDs) narrated by Jim Weiss. When I was at a homeschool convention recently, I met Mr. Weiss and we talked about the importance of understanding how children learn. With a narrated CD, a student can listen to the story and read along at the same time.

An Activity Book that contains coloring worksheets, maps, activities, and questions can be bought separately.

This history curriculum can be taught at a different age groups, which is nice for the homeschooler with multi-level grades. With nine children, I am always on the look out for curriculum that can be taught to more than one grade level.

It is NOT written from a Christian world-view, however it is not presented as anti-Christian either.
