Children should not just read about history, they should live it.
Philip Campbell uses his historical expertise and story-telling ability together in tandem to present the content in a fresh and thrilling way.
The Story of Civilization reflects a new emphasis in presenting the history of the world as a thrilling and compelling narrative. Within each chapter, children will encounter short stories that place them directly in the shoes of historical figures, both famous and ordinary, as they live through legendary battles and invasions, philosophical debates, the construction of architecturalwonders, the discovery of new inventions and sciences, and the exploration of the world.
Volume II: The Medieval World continues the journey, picking up where Volume I left off just after the conversion of Emperor Constantine. Children will watch the seeds of Christendom being planted in the soil of Europe thanks to colossal figures like Sts. Benedict, Patrick and Ambrose. The wonder of the Medieval world comes alive with brilliant tales of knights, crusaders, castles and inventions.
The strength of the content lies not only in the storybook delivery of it, but also in the way it presents history through the faithful prism of the Church. You have always wanted to have your children learn from a Catholic perspective- here, you’ll have the trusted resource you’ve always wanted.
In this complete set, you will get the fascinating textbook & testbook, the enthralling dramatized audio books, activity book, teacher’s manual, and timeline map.
