What a fantastic book! This book is huge and packed with loads of ideas of how to make history come alive for children. This book is to be bought along with the main Story of the World book and for each chapter you read this will give you lots of activities to do. Some chapters having cooking tasks, there's always map work, there are review questions, things to make, recommended additional reading and so much more. My children, aged 10,12 and 13, have really enjoyed working through this book. We don't do every single activity for each chapter, we pick and choose the ones that appeal to us.
Completing our sets of this series with the book, workbooks and CD for journey listening which has found us sitting in the car eagerly caught up not wanting to stop. So any time, anywhere for all ages! Just need more time to do them justice.
