History Comes Alive
Review by Amy
Again, AS 3 is excellent. I have loved all of these history's. I just wish I had this history when I was younger. The great thing, I'll be able to go through it all with my younger children. I love how history does come alive. We were able to use our kitchen table world map and explain how the wars went with the chapters in this book and made history come alive and hands on.
We have used all three!!
Review by Elizabeth
I have used all 3 Americas Story history curriculum, with both my son and daughter. We sit down and do group history, and I just give my older daughter more challenging assignments, to be more age appropriate. We all enjoy reading through the book, and discussing our great nations history.
Wonderful Series
Review by Jenna
We love this series as a family. I used America's Story 1 and 2 for our history lessons for the past 2 years. This year I decided to use America's Story 3 as part of our morning basket. It has went wonderfully. I love the way the book is written and the history that we all are learning with this book.
We love this series!
Review by Kimberly
This was a great history book to read with my 2nd grader and 5th grader. I also added the timeline. It has narration breaks and at the end of each chapter are some questions to talk about. It reads like a rich novel not like a textbook, but has an amazing amount of info in it. I love how the hard issues are not left out, however they are written about through a Biblical worldview. It was helpful to me to understand and helped me talk about some historical issues with my kids. Very age appropriate too!
Enjoyed
Review by Lindsey
Have enjoyed going through this series. It was nice to have the good the bad and the ugly shared about our nations history in a way that was appropriate for children of all ages, and wrapped in the Gospel message. Learned a lot, and enjoyed all the great pictures and the narrative approach.
The Conclusion of the Best History Series
Review by Bethany
My two older kids read the entire America's Story series in two school years. Like nothing else, these books have made American history come alive for my upper elementary kids. I can't wait to do this series again with their younger siblings. Highly recommend!
Nice Series
Review by Annice
We are finishing this series this year and have learned so much. I’m glad we did it. History can be a hard read but this was a great set up.
Best so far
Review by Laura
We have been through all three America's Story books and this one is my favorite so far because it gives a good ending to the series. It was almost like a book series you did not want to end. As with America's Story 1 & 2, the level 3 thoroughly covers American history and includes many photos with captions describing each photo in each chapter.
Great Curriculum for elementary and middle school
Review by Melissa
We have enjoyed this over a spread of ages from 7 to 12. Everyone gets something out of it.
US History
Review by Jessica
