Description

  • Used Book in Good Condition
  • This first book in the four-volume narrative history series for elementary students will transform your study of
    history. The Story of the World has won awards from numerous homeschooling magazines and readers' polls—over 150,000
    copies of the series in print!

    What terrible secret was buried in Shi Huangdi's tomb? Did nomads like lizard stew? What happened to Anansi the Spider
    in the Village of the Plantains? And how did a six-year-old become the last emperor of Rome?

    Told in a straightforward, engaging style that has become Susan Wise Bauer's trademark, The Story of the World series
    covers the sweep of human history from ancient times until the present. Africa, China, Europe, the Americas—find out
    what happened all around the world in long-ago times. This first revised volume begins with the earliest nomads and ends
    with the last Roman emperor. Newly revised and updated, The Story of the World, Volume 1 includes maps, a new timeline,
    more illustrations, and additional parental aids. This read-aloud series is designed for parents to share with
    elementary-school children. Enjoy it together and introduce your child to the marvelous story of the world's
    civilizations.

    Each Story of the World volume provides a full year of history study when combined with the Activity Book, Audiobook,
    and Tests—each available separately to accompany each volume of The Story of the World Text Book. Volume 1 Grade
    Recommendation: Grades 1-5. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white drawings and maps
