Volume 4: The Modern Age

The Modern Age (1850 to 1994) – Introduce your child to the marvelous story of world civilizations with the final volume of this best-selling history series. Where was the Crystal Palace? Who was the Sick Man of Europe? And how did cow fat start a revolution?

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. (Pick up the audio version for those long car trips…unless you prefer keeping “Let it Go” 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 map exercises, review questions, reading lists (fiction and nonfiction), research ideas, and fun projects. For younger students, the downloadable Coloring Pages beautifully illustrate each chapter.

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.
