Product Description

Stories of the Nations, Volume 1 has been discontinued. We are excited to bring you a new world history living book from Lorene Lambert, Our Neighbors: Their Stories, Volume 1. This wonderful new book will be released in late Spring 2024, alongside a new 4th edition of our Early Modern & Epistles history lesson plans that will schedule the new book for world history lessons. While supplies last, previous editions are available on our scratch and dent page.

Mr. Morris’s narratives, originally published in 1901, make you feel as if you are listening to a kindly grandfather recounting tales from the past. And now Lorene Lambert has brought this history up to date by adding more living narratives. This delightful book will introduce to your child famous people and events that occurred in the nations around the world. Volume 1 presents stories from Queen Elizabeth through Garibaldi (1550–1850).

  • Delightful Living Book—In a captivating yet gentle style, the people and events of world history are unfolded in true stories about their day.
  • Interesting to the Whole Family—Though addressed to young readers, Mr. Morris’s grandfatherly story-telling pleasantly attracts and educates any age.
  • Easy to Narrate—Both authors paint pictures with their words that make it easy to see with your mind’s eye, and narrations naturally flow from those mental pictures.
  • Leisurely Pace—These little history books invite you to take your time meandering through world history and enjoy other living books of the time period as well without worrying about fitting everything into your year.
  • Natural Geography—The stories often refer the reader to the historical maps in the back of the book to naturally connect geography to the events and people of whom you are reading.
  • Recommended—Listed as a suggested resource in the SCM Curriculum Guide as the World History spine book for Early Modern times

  1. Heather

    We are loving this simple text! It gives them great little introductions and overviews of a variety of events and people. My daughters are 7 and 9 and rejoice each time I pick this one up. They both are able to do oral narrations over small portions in each chapter, and is a great gentle text to introduce us into the narration method as we are new to Charlotte Mason style!

      Thank you for sharing with us! We are thankful your daughters are rejoicing over their history book and pray for blessings this year as you spread the feast.
