Big Book Of History, Book review

Book description:

Unfold 6000 years of history in a stunning chart that stretches 15 feet.
A Big look at history for young learners! Ages 7 to 12
The Big Book of History is the perfect way to engage your child in an adventurous trip through time - from the first Day of Creation to present day! Discover:
  • The birth dates of conquerors, kings, inventors, scientists, and famous men of God
  • Wars and wonders of the ancient and modern worlds
  • The 969-year-old man who shared the true history of the world with Noah
  • The first ancient inventions and discoveries of chocolate, yo-yos, batteries, movies, and more!
Did you know... Thomas Edison is known for inventing a working light bulb, but do you know he also invented the first talking dolls and helped to create an early and commercially-successful form of movies? He also started the first movie studio, and probably the most unique. It was built so that the whole building could be turned in a circle during the day to get the most sunlight!
Designed to share the most details in a colorful collection of important facts and interesting photos, it can be an effective educational resource or enjoyed just for fun!

My review:

'The Big Book of History' is an interesting learning concept for homeschoolers and young history students in the form of a fantastic 15 foot fold out time line chart. It provides 7 to 12 years old with a great instructional tool and a quick reference guide.
With this, the student is given the opportunity to view historical events from Creation to present day, 6000 years of History in fact!
World events, biblical/Christianity, civilizations, empires, inventions and technology are each identified with colours. 
A student is therefore able to look up dates to identify historical events, birth dates of kings, inventors, scientists and men of God in one specific year. Mum and Dad, you might just learn a thing or two as well!

This is not intended to replace complete history books but with the study guide available for download online at no additional charge, you will discover details and activities to complete your educational program for a full school term.

Entertaining whilst educational, this fold up time chart is appealing to children and will prove a great tool for any teacher.

5 stars!
