Susan Wise Bauer has provided a captivating guide to the history of other lands. Written in an engaging, straightforward manner, this revised edition of The Story of the World: History for the Classical Child, Volume 2: The Middle Ages weaves world history into a story book format.

Review quote

"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 "This may well be the best multi-age read aloud narrative of world history yet to have been written."
