About the Author:

Susan Wise Bauer is a novelist and educator. With her mother, Jessie Wise, she co-authored The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home (Norton, 1999), a book which has rapidly become an educational standard. Susan teaches at The College of William & Mary in Virginia. She was home-educated herself; she and her husband Peter now teach their four children at home as well.

Barbara Alan Johnson is a professional stage actress, most noted for her portrayal of Mary, the mother of Jesus, in Charles Turner’s one-woman play, "Woman in Light." Her voice can be heard on radio and television nationwide. As a twenty-year veteran homeschooling mother, she has spent countless hours reading aloud to her own three children. Barbara lives and works in Roanoke, Virginia.


"This may well be the best multiage read aloud narrative of world history yet to have been written. " -- Homeschooling in Japan, January 2002

This is a basic history resource from which you can build a complete study for the early grades. -- Cathy Duffy, author of Christian Home Educator's Manual: Elementary Grades and co-author of Beyond Survival: A Guide to Abundant-Life Homeschooling

This works wonderfully as a family read-aloud... There's plenty of dialogue and enough detail to keep adults interested. -- Cafi Cohen, author of Homeschooling The Teen Years
