History Year by Year

The "Dark Ages" were a direct result of the fall of the Roman Empire. The Revolutions that rocked the world in the 18th century were born from the Age of Enlightenment. Few people realize that history is a continuous result of the occurrences that took place before. When you look at history as a cause and effect and connect the dots, it makes it much easier to understand where and how things happened, and why we must study the past to learn what's in store for us in the future. I bought this book for my son and daughter in law to read with their children. If children recognize events from the past- it will make it easier to learn in school. Many children have trouble with social studies. If you can get them familiar with certain key events- it will make is more understandable in the classroom. If you stress and show how events from the past have somehow effect them today- it personalizes history into something they can relate to and understand.

Happy Reading!
