The World's Story

We have a new book coming out! We had hoped to have it available at the start of the school year, but . . . God's timing prevailed. It is at the printer now and we are accepting
pre-orders. It will ship after Christmas. The pre-order offer includes free media mail shipping.

You can read all about it on our website.

It's a history text from the early 1900s which we found to be quite readable and interesting for children in grades 5 - 8. Since it's from that time, it doesn't include the world wars of the 20th century. However it provides a balanced look at the Renaissance and Reformation and can serve as a springboard to further study on any of the historical time periods.
An ancient Byzantine picture of Theodoric’s Palace at Ravenna (A mosaic in a Byzantine church at Ravenna).

We updated many of the images and have reprinted it in a full color  hardcover edition. Hope you like it!
