Wednesday Review: Story of the World 3

The stories are a nice overview of people and events. Susan Wise Bauer includes all major locations where history was taking place during that period. My daughter's only complaint has been, "Why does everyone die in my stories?"

If you are looking for a history curriculum in a nice story format then take another look at Story of the World.
