Free shipping on USA orders over $95!
It is special pricing right now and also available in PB. Free shipping over $50 to March 31. A review on Amazon for the oop book says it is in the style of Hillyer’s Child’s History of the World. The illustrator is James Daugherty. Sounds good to me! We have enjoyed SCM Stories of America, but this might be nice for covering some American history along with an Ancient history module.
I was curious about this book when I saw it mentioned in the other post. We are finishing module 1 and will be starting module 2 in a few weeks but my daughter just asked me yesterday if we can study American History.AnonymousInactive
Thanks so much for this!
I don’t know anything about this author or much about BF. Anyone have input? If this looks like a sure bet I would love to get the 30% of pre-print sale price.TailorMadeParticipant
This is the same history book as some know previously as the Rainbow Book of American History. BF does a spectacular job in republishing and preserving timeless books.
Here’s a nice description.Mysterious Lady in PinkParticipant
I looked at the couple of sample pages on the blog. Does anyone know if there are more sample pages anywhere? I am familiar with Daugherty’s illustrations from other books, but I really felt like the text to illustrations ratio was just… wow, sensory overload (for me). Does anyone know if all the pages are like this?
This sale ends tomorrow. I’m still undecided.greenebaltsParticipant
I was fortunate enough to find the original Rainbow Book of American History at a book sale last weekend. I LOVE it! The illustrations are awesome and I do not feel overloaded at all when looking through the book….and I’m not real into pictures, but I do like Daugherty’s work. This is what actually drew me to the book. There are some 2 page spreads with text only and no illustrations. The readings are short, anywhere from 3 – 6 pages. I would use it for a read aloud for K-3 or older depending on your range. It could be read on your own by grades 4-6. The retired homeschool mother of 7 that I bought it from said she used it as a read aloud spine for all ages. She added to it for the older ones and it was just right for the younger ones. Since I just bought it, I have not had a chance to read it yet so I won’t comment on that.
I also agree that BF does a wonderful job with their reprints.

Thank you for sharing about that, Melissa! It’s good to hear from someone who actually handled the book. 🙂
Site unseen, I took the risk. We are finishing Module 1 and starting Module 2 in a few short weeks; however, my daughter recently asked if we could study American History. Hopefully this will work to partially fulfill that desire while we continue our regular studies. I also purchased the D’Aulaire books to go along with this.
Just wanted to mention this is still on sale in case anyone else is thinking of taking advantage of the sale. We are waiting for our hard cover version yet. I called the company and they said the paperback started shipping last week and the hard cover should ship within a couple weeks. They had a printing issue.
