History becomes memorable when you personalize it!
With My Book of Centuries you will create your own personal record of the discoveries, inventions, people, places, and events throughout history that grab your interest and pique your curiosity.
A Book of Centuries is kind of like a timeline that doesn’t clutter your wall space, because it’s in a book. But it is so much more! It is a book your children create and keep for themselves, which makes history take on a personal significance.
- Use with the whole family—Create a family Book of Centuries with younger children and allow each older child to create his own.
- Encourages more personal connections—The four-pages-per-century format gives your child plenty of room and some gentle guidance to help him create a century-at-a-glance chart, notice contemporary noteworthy persons, trace interesting artifacts through the centuries, and summarize his findings in a brief narration. (See page details below.)
- Lasts for years—Thick paper and a sturdy spiral binding allow you to create a keepsake that will last for years to come.
- Makes history come alive—Help your child discover the mental connections that make history come alive. My Book of Centuries will encourage a lifetime of loving history.
