About This special history series 

Young people learn best when they’re entertained and intrigued, like when they’re told a story. And that is what this series is all about, learning through entertainment. 
History is indeed a story and that’s why the author chose to tell it as one.
Too often people close their minds to history and find it boring, dull, and dry when it is anything but!  Too often even in homeschooling curriculum, authors are presenting the lesson, as just a lesson.
But in this series history is explored as a never-ending tale full of wonder, mystery, and truth.
If we are to teach our children the subject of history we need to engage them.  We need to reach them on a level upon which they feel moved to want to retain what they’ve learned.  We need to reach them the same way we ourselves, as adults are reached by engaging their sense of wonder. Isn’t that how we ourselves often retain great detail, through a good book we can’t put down, or a great movie? So why shouldn’t we teach our children that way?
If we treat history as a dry old series of dusty years with names and dates, that’s exactly how our children will treat it.
For the author, history is about the passion of discovery, its about people embarking on adventure, it’s about triumph and calamity, and often tragedy. History is about glory, and culture, life, love, and death. History is about the unfolding of our very own words and deeds. 

And that is a precious gift of insight we should not rob our children of, for its an appreciation of where they came from, and why.

I love the way he tells history, as a story! I know history and yet weirdly I still found myself wondering what would happen next!

The way he talks about history really left me intrigued and my son loved it and wants more. And that's exactly what I want for my son. A love of history.
