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? Learn these stories and so many more! Susan Wise Bauer brings to life the stories and records of the early modern times.

Now more than ever, other countries and customs affect our everyday lives, and our children need to learn about the people who live all around the globe. Written in an engaging, straightforward manner, The Story of the World weaves world history into a storybook format. Susan Wise Bauer has provided a captivating guide to the history of the early modern world. 

Follow along with the Audiobook version. (Really; you have to hear Jim Weiss say “Tokugawa” to be a complete human being.)

Add The Story of the World Vol. 3: Early Modern Times, Activity Book for a full year of history, geography, and literature study along with maps, coloring pages, and hands-on activities.

By the way, did you know that you can buy this book in a handy downloadable PDF? Much more airplane-friendly, particularly now that your e-reader can stay on during takeoff and landing. We’d call it History Unbound, but we think someone’s already bagged that title.

  1. Question

    I recently purchased all four volumes, and I really like that the events are list in chronological order in the appendix. Two out of the four volumes (V2 & V4) include the chapters where the events are mentioned. How can I get the same information for Volumes 1 & 3? I would like to go through it all in order. Thanks!

    • We do have one of those lists for Volume 3, though it hasn’t been uploaded yet…if you email our office ([email protected]) we can send it to you.

  2. Question

    I’d like to know how Story of the World handles topics like colonization, slavery, the civil war, reconstruction, Jim Crow, etc. I have been so disappointed in the white washing I’ve seen in other curriculum…where they skip over much of this or paint our “fore fathers” as amazing men who could do no wrong…instead of the slave holders they were.

    • The Story of the World covers all the topics you listed, and more, including things like the Indian Removal Act and the Trail of Tears. There are chapters on the awful practices of the Slave Trade and chapters on the injustices done to the Native Americans. The discriminatory Jim Crow laws, and the Civil Rights movement, are covered in Volume 4. We do not whitewash the history of the United States or other countries. We try to portray the good and the bad, at a level that is appropriate for children.

  3. Question

  4. Question

    What edition is being sold for the text, I saw an audio cd version for volume 3 was a second edition and wondered if the written text, activity book and test book was also second editions as well?

    • Christie: Sorry about the confusion. There is only 1 edition of the text. The audio CD version that says “revised” referred to the fact that we re-recorded it with a new narrator and better audio quality. But the words themselves haven’t changed. So whichever CD of Volume 3 you use will be the same as this text.

    Question

    I purchased the kindle version. How do I download it onto my kindle?

    • We recommend that you download and save it to your PC or Mac and then transfer the file to your Kindle. Plug your Kindle into your USB drive. Do this using the Kindle’s standard USB cord…
      Locate your Kindle folder on your computer. Once your Kindle is successfully connected to your computer, open your Kindle drive. You can find the Kindle drive in the same place your external USB drives appear.
      On a Mac, this is typically right on the desktop. If not, open your Finder and locate the Kindle drive from the left panel.
      On a PC, if you don’t find your Kindle drive on your desktop, you can find it in the Computer…My Computer folder.
      Then move the file from your Downloads folder to your Kindle folder.
