A Fun Way to "Explore the Classical World"

Knowledge Quest has recently published "A Child’s Geography: Exploring the Classical World" by Terri Johnson.

This book is a wonderful way to introduce your children to Ancient History!  Terri Johnson did a spectacular job writing a “living history” book that teaches children (and adults too) about the “Classical World” as you journey around the Mediterranean Sea.  The book is written much like a travel log, describing life and culture in various countries such as Greece, Macedonia, and Italy.  Not only does she describe how people used to live, she also relates it to how people live today.  The stories are so interesting and the descriptions so vivid that it makes you want to “travel the world!”

In addition to the narration questions at the end of each chapter, the author has also included several internet links (like this one) to videos that describe the topics being studied.  The included CD contains recipes from the Mediterranean countries, extra reading suggestions, timelines, travel log, and additional activities for each chapter.  There is even a prayer guide for each country!  I am thankful that the book is written with a biblical perspective as well!

My boys and I look forward to learning so much this year as we study “A Child’s Geography: Exploring the Classical World!”
