Written in a conversational style, many lessons are presented in the form of mini-biographies, integrating fascinating stories with the events of the time.

Covering creation to the resurrection, this curriculum is arranged by quarters and weeks; each quarter begins with an “Around the World” summary of events to introduce the time period; lessons progress chronologically, with each week having 3 lessons, a pretest, review activities (including Memory Cards), and exercise or quiz. 

The Student Reader contains 108 exciting lessons  in a colorful, easy-to-hold hardback. Divided into 36 weeks, the reader is a standalone world history text for all ages to enjoy. But for those who wish to delve deeper, we have included a download code in each book for a digital version of The Mystery of History Volume I Companion Guide. The reproducible resources of the Companion Guide, also written by Linda Lacour Hobar, contain familiar and popular components of The Mystery of History series: pretests; hands-on activities and research projects for younger, middle, and older students; memory card ideas; bi-weekly quizzes and exercises; timeline helps; maps; supplemental book lists; and more.

“We love The Mystery of History. We used it in a traditional school setting in the past and now use it as part of our full-time home school curriculum. It is very thorough and easy to follow. You can do all of the suggested activities or only read and discuss each chapter. Either way your child will learn so much about history from a Christian point of view.”
