Not sure how to entertain your children for weeks on end without plopping them in front of Disney+ for eight hours straight while you attempt, for the third time this week, to. just. take. a. S H O W E R?
We’re here to help.
The Story of the World , our perennially best-selling elementary-level* history text, is filled with amazing stories from, well, around the world. And we’ve put together a list of the best-of-the-best chapters for you to read along with your children (or have them read, or have Jim Weiss read to them while you finally take that shower). Then, we’ve listed the top activities that correspond with these chapters so your children can continue learning without even knowing they’re learning because they’re too busy delighting in making Turkish delight, conquering Europe, and mummifying chickens. Our Activity Books also include map exercises, games, reading lists, and (in most cases) coloring pages.
If you don’t already have our Story of the World texts and Activity Books, they’re available on our store (you can even buy them as PDFs!). We’ve also listed the ISBNs for the paperback versions of each title in case you want to shop elsewhere.
*Do you have middle-schoolers at home? No worries! They’ll still enjoy reading The Story of the World ; the reading level increases across the four volumes. And the joys of mummifying a chicken are ageless.
