Cottage School Blog was created by a 23 year veteran homeschool mom, and mother to 12 children. I am sharing here what I have found to be some of the best curricula, websites, homeschool blogs, ideas, methods, etc., in hopes to benefit and encourage you as you journey through the world of training and educating your children.

Story of the World
The Story of the World is an award-winning resource for families looking for a history curriculum they can fall in love with. Told in the straightforward, engaging style that has become Susan Wise Bauer's trademark, this four-volume set covers the sweep of human history from ancient times until the present. Africa, China, Europe, the Americas — find out what happened all around the world in long-ago times. This read-aloud series is designed for parents and teachers to share with elementary school children. Enjoy it together and introduce your child to the marvelous story of the the world's civilizations.
We have all 4 volumes of Story of the World. Two of our children are almost finished with the 2nd volume. You will find the activity guides to be thorough, well laid out and easy to read. A very good program for "older" more independent learners. Go HERE to read more.
