The Story of the World Vol. 1: Ancient Times covers Egypt, Hammurabi and the Babylonians, Ancient China, Ancient Africa, the Exodus, The Greeks, Rome, and more. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white drawings and maps, it also includes a pronunciation guide and chronology. (History doesn’t happen in a vacuum; it happens in real places, so we put lots and lots of maps in our history books.)

Use this Text along with the Activity Book for an entire year of history, literature, and geography study.

Consider this: the baby is crying, raw chicken waits for you in the kitchen, and little Johnny wants you to read him the chapter about the Minoan Bull-Jumpers again. Do you really want to hinder his thirst for history? Of course not! But dinner won’t prepare itself…No problem, there’s an Audiobook version of this Text read by Jim Weiss. He can read to your kids when you can’t!
