The Audiobook brings history to life with this spirited reading of The Story of the World Volume 2: The Middle Ages by renowned narrator Jim Weiss. Save time by listening on the road or while preparing dinner, or let it lull the children to sleep at bedtime.

Product Overview

This spirited and unabridged reading of Susan Wise Bauer’s The Story of the World Volume 2: The Middle Ages brings to life the stories and records of the peoples of the Middle Ages, covering the major historical events from the fall of Rome through the rise of the Renaissance. Read by Jim Weiss, it can be enjoyed independently, read along with the text, or used as a supplement to a traditional history curriculum.

Consider this: it’s almost time for lunch, your toddler is attempting to scale the mountain of laundry that hides the washing machine, and little Sally wants you to read her the chapter about the Viking Invasion again. Do you really want to hinder her thirst for history? Of course not! But what about lunch? And that laundry won’t wash, dry, and fold itself . . . No problem! Let Jim Weiss take it from here. He can read to your kids when you can’t!

    Is there an MP3 for each chapter? I want to be able to link to each file/chapter from Evernote as they are assigned.

    Does the MP3 match up to the Revised Edition textbook? I primarily use the textbook but want to supplement with the MP3 when we’re on the road.

    I have the 2003 version of the text. Should I track down an older set of the CD’s or will the MP3’s work well with the pre-revised text?

    I own the entire series in both audio and paperback versions. I used the audiobooks in my homeschool for elementary and again in Middle School grades. My children LOVE them and are retaining history!!!

  8. Question

    KerriLynn Bielinski (verified owner)

    Help! I absolutely love the voice actor and the way this curriculum was written. It keeps my kids’ attention. The only problem is that we’ve had horrible luck with our CD players. After losing two early in the year, we decided to purchase the entire set in mp3 format instead of another CD player. This has also been a nightmare to try and use. In the midst of building a house by ourselves, having a child with a tumor and all the appointments that go along with that, trying to fix the history issues has been nearly impossible. So I’m at the end of the year, with nearly no history done, and a lovely History curriculum I can’t hardly access. Please tell me that you are working on an audible style format and that I can transfer my mp3 purchase over to that! 😁We can do history all summer if needed.
    Hopeful…..

      Our audiobooks are just standard MP3s, so please email [email protected] if you are having trouble with them. We will be glad to help!

      We are (still) working on getting on some streaming services for audio, but we don’t have a projected timeline. As services become available, we’ll announce in our newsletter and on social media and the FAQ section.

      Alas, purchases are not transferable to streaming (streaming services are different companies).

      They can, they are standard mp3s. You will want to use an audiobook player app, the native Apple apps do not play nicely with non-Apple products.
