The Big Book of History is a an educational fold-out timeline published by Masterbooks. This illustrated, full-color timeline covers all of human history from the start of creation to the modern day! Beginning with the creation acount of Genesis, and ending with the advent of computers and even Ipods, everything is covered. One major strength of this timeline is the reconciliation of world events and scientific events with the biblical acount of history. A literal 7 day period of creation is assumed, and supported as well. Nevertheless, this timeline is suitable for the secular audience as well. Basically, this timeline of events states facts, not opinions- with the focus on historical events. Nevertheless, for athiests- the 7-day creation at the start of the timeline might be a hurdle. Nevertheless, this does not detract from the credibility and accuracy of this timeline.
This timeline includes full color photos and illustrations. Biblical history, as well as world history, social events, scientific breakthroughs and acheological history are covered in a simple to read format. There is coverage from every culture and area of the world. Basically every major event is chronicled in this timeline for kids. This fold- out timeline is a perfect educational tool for students of all ages. As a blogger for New Leaf publishers I received this book for the purpose of writing a review.
