The Story of the World Volume 2: The Middle Ages by Susan Wise Bauer was the second book in a series of History books that we use for homeschooling. She includes religious aspects, including Christian religion, which I enjoy to add to my teaching.
Learn about the fall of Rome, the rise of the Muslim empire, the plague and King Henry VIII in the pages of this book. Mrs. Bauer does a wonderful job of creating a story to keep young ones interested in History. The book also is interesting and filled with facts that are new to many adults. As we have read through these books, I have enjoyed our journey.
We look forward to starting book number 3, which we will be getting to in a few weeks.
I can’t wait to see how Mrs. Bauer will bring to life the Early Modern Times. I’m expecting it to follow suit with the first two books.
For younger children, these books are easy to follow. My children are a little bit older but we want to finish the series out. They enjoy listening to History be brought alive through Mrs. Bauer’s words.
