The Story of the World series brings to life the people, discoveries, conflicts, and stories that shaped human history, from the ancient era to our own time. Told in Susan Wise Bauer’s exciting, clear style, this series has been read aloud by millions of parents to their elementary-school children, and has been read independently by a generation of middle-schoolers. The Story of the World series has over 800,000 copies in print.
Volume 2 covers the major historical events from the fall of the Rome through the rise of the Renaissance. 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 Story of the World Vol. 2: The Middle Ages, Activity Book for a full year of history, geography, and literature study along with fun and engaging hands-on activities.
