This has been a great resource for History in our home school! My kids would happily listen to these CDs over and over again if I let them and they love to tell people interesting things they've learned from them! Will definitely be looking for the accompanying activity book and the next volume!

Listened to the audio book version of the story. It was a good survey of ancient times for younger children. Not only is this good for the homeschooling set, but it would also be a good purchase for the classroom teacher who is looking for something for centres or a balanced curriculum unit.
