Subtitled: History Through Literature Guide. This book is a teacher’s reference and guide for teaching and learning history using literature rather than textbooks. By using this exhaustive guide to over 5600 of the best in quality “living books”: narrative histories, biographies, non-fiction, historical fiction, literature, and more, and a library card, a parent can effectively teach their children both World and American History regardless of their childrens’ grades or reading levels. Books for every reading level in every historical era are included, from picture books and beginning readers through the great books of Western Civilization. The guide can be used from 1st through 12th grades to teach any historical era, and also includes a geographical section, to teach geographical awareness through literature; history of the sciences, mathematics, and arts section, and a separate section listing the great books of Western Civilization and the Christian tradition, covering the history of the Great Discussion, Literature, Poetry, and Drama.

Edward Hull, Third Millenium Press

As the Wall Chart of World History is now out of print, this TimeChart is the newly updated revision from that famous and rare Victorian Wall Chart by Edward Hull. History begins at the beginning, with the Creation of the world, and all major Biblical persons are included in the fold-out timeline. The history of all the civilizations of the world can be followed concurrently with Biblical history and the timeline is full of interesting illustrations and details. This edition is revised with a small geologic time chart in the beginning, which can be easily ignored, and the events of the twentieth century added. Along with the extra helps that the Wall Chart contained, even more historical detail has been added for older students. What an invaluable resource!

Larousse Kingfisher Chambers

The beautiful and comprehensive Kingfisher Illustrated History of the World is out of print, but Kingfisher has put out a new resource utilizing some of the same features as the Illustrated History which made it so popular. The progression of history unfolds page by page, rather than alphabetically, thank goodness (over 3500 alphabetical references are indexed in the back for a quick look up of historical information). Each page includes full-color illustrations, and a listing of the most important names, events, and dates, along with the concise articles that provide the teacher with a cursory knowledge of the times. This edition also takes the evolutionary stance of long ages to civilization.

Francis Schaeffer

Subtitled: The Rise and Decline of Western Thought and Culture. “This book is a personal analysis of the key moments in history which have formed our present culture, and the thinking of the men who brought those moments to pass. This study is made in the hope that light may be shed upon the major characteristics of our age and that solutions may be found to the myriad of problems which face us as we look toward the end of the twentieth century.” If as a parent you have gaps in your knowledge of the history of Western Civilization, Dr. Schaeffer’s important book will help set you on the road of discovery and understanding, so necessary before beginning to relate the story of Western Civilization to our children.

Jackson J. Spielvogel

Although this excellent text, commonly used in university survey courses, does provide a comprehensive survey of Western Civilization, it is not as easy to use in the grammar stage as either The Wall Chart of World History, or Kingfisher’s Illustrated History of the World. It does include maps and timelines, and covers the history of Western Civilization from ancient times (taking an evolutionary approach of long ages to civilization) through 1970. And, it is very necessary, after the homeschool parent has gone over the cursory information found in The Kingfisher History Encyclopedia, to provide a deeper and broader understanding of the whys and hows behind the events and people. Be sure to use How Should We Then Live? by Francis Schaeffer with this book to get a balanced view of Western history.
