Story of the World Susan Wise Bauer
We have been using SOTW for a couple of years. We use the story book and the activity guide. My kids love it Alhamdulillah and I love thats it the history of the world in chronological order. The only thing is that its written from a christian history perspective so you have to correct the stories for the prophets etc. We use a project book along with the activity guide to write in with pictures maps etc from the activity guide. Its such a great program and you can go off on tangents when you see fit, its also pretty easy to find documentaries relating to the different civilisations and eras etc. Start off with volume 1 story book and activity guide as it will most likely take ages to get through and by then you will know whether you like it or not.
