Volume 3: Early Modern Times

Early Modern Times (1600 to 1850) – Introduce your child to the marvelous story of world civilizations with this third volume of the best-selling Story of the World series. Who was the Sun King? How did samurai become sumo wrestlers? What was the Black Hole of Calcutta? And why was a California town named Ground Hog Glory?

Susan Wise Bauer leads you on a fascinating journey through the cultures, conflicts, and ideas that continue to shape our world. This read-aloud book is designed for parents to share with elementary-school children, or for older readers to enjoy alone. It is available in paperback, hardback, or digital download. (Pick up the audio version for those long car trips…unless you prefer keeping the “Kidz Bop” CD on an endless loop, in which case we wish you well, and may your earplugs be sturdy).

Turn it into a full-year curriculum with the accompanying Activity Book, which provides coloring pages, map exercises, review questions, reading lists (fiction and nonfiction), research ideas, and fun projects.

Parents of older students (4th grade and up) can use the Tests to evaluate progress, with multiple-choice, short answer, and essay questions for each chapter.
