Understanding how the past has shaped our future will inspire young learners to make history for themselves! ~ Master Books
Sometimes the idea of “History” can be overwhelming. Especially curriculum that is text heavy and visually unappealing. What if you can fill all of history in one book – 15 feet long with vibrant pictures, interesting facts, and a color coordinated time line … who can resist that type of learning fun?!
Master Books has upped the bar and all publishing companies should consider producing such grand History books!
I received the Big Book of History and immediately my boys were unfolding the pages and reading the wonderful “did you know”? snippets. This book is fantastic for my visual / tactile learner!
The Big Book of History time line is packed with 4 different tracks: Biblical/Christianity, World Events, Inventions/Technology, and Civilizations/Empires. Information for every interest!
Did you know …
- The flood caused the Ice Age? (read Case of The Missing Mountain for more research and fun!)
- The largest stone at Stonehenge weighs 45 tons
- The Trojan horse only secretly held 30 soldiers and 2 spies
- Slings were effective weapons flung a quarter of a mile at 60mph
- Olive oil was used for more than just cooking
- There is only 1 “Ancient Wonder of the World” still standing
- 1847 the 1st chocolate bar was created (thank you)
- and so many other interesting facts your kids will love learning history!
The Big Book of History begins with Day 1 (an explanation of a literal 24-hour day) and ends with the last date of 2010 President Barack Obama.
15 feet of information between both entries makes this (light weight, easy to handle and read) Big Book of History a must have !
