Historical Timeline

My son was amazed that kids his age most likely played with yo-yos in 500 B.C. They have found disks made of terra cota, skins, wood, and metal. We are learning so much about history in the "BIG Book of History." You can read this book like a regular old book, or you can unfold all the pages to reveal the 15 ft timeline. This book is loaded with great pictures and important historical events. My son said, "This book has Christian stuff in it too!" That opened it up for conversation. Christianity is a BIG part of our history.  Who knew they had their own type of batteries back in 248 B.C.? Some facts I found interesting, in 1947 President Harry Truman declared the U.S. a Christian Nation and 60 years later our new president, Obama, declares the U.S. is no longer a Christian Nation. Boy, are times a changin'. We are going to learn so much and I am excited about teaching all this great stuff to my kids for their homeschooling lessons. You can look inside this book and purchase it at or purchase at It's the same price either way.

I received this book from the wonderful folks @ Master Books, a division of New Leaf Publishing Group.
