Review: Big Book of History

The Big Book of History is a fold out 15 ft timeline from the first day of Creation to the present day.  In this book your child (recommended ages 7-12)  will discover:

  • the birthdates of conquerors, kings, inventors, scientists, and famous men of God
  • wars and wonders of 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 yo's, batteries, movies and so much more
Through a color coded timeline with yellow marking Biblical/Christianity, orange marking word events, red marking civilizations/empires and green marking inventions/technology, plus interesting facts and photos, your child will love using this book just for fun or as an educational resource.

"The Big Book of History is a really cool book!" That's according to my son Nicholas (9.)  As soon as we opened the box he had to open it up and start exploring.  And of course we had to unfold the whole thing to see how long it really was.

I couldn't get the whole thing in the picture!

Here are some closer pictures of the inside:

  The Big Book of History is right up my son's alley.  He loves history and loves timelines.  This book presents a lot of fun and interesting facts and figures many of which you wouldn't find on a regular history timeline or even in most history textbooks.  You do not have to unfold the entire book in order to read it.  It opens in such a way as you can unfold it or read it like a regular book.  The Big Book of History is a wonderful addition to any home or homeschool library.

I received a complimentary copy of The Big Book of History from New Leaf Publications for the purpose of writing a fair and honest review.  I received no other compensation.
