Coming next week . . . Two history books go head-to-head in a competition to become the Duchy's book of choice for early elementary ancient history text!
The contestants are:
Hillyer's A Child's History of the World
Bauer's The Story of the World: Ancient Times
Hillyer's has an early edge because we already own a copy, picked up on a whim at a library book sale. On a cursory review, it seems to be a livelier read, but a bit dated. (Even history books get dated.)
Full reviews will be posted when I get them finished.
