How We Tell the Story of History
Included throughout the Study Guide are four weeks of warm and cozy ancient literature study that we like to call Hygge History. Parents and students snuggle up together to enjoy time-honored tales from four ancient civilizations across the world. See the Early Times Study Guide Booklist.
What Are History Hops?
History Hops, found at the end of each History Quest chapter, take your child on an imaginary journey to visit some of the historical characters and places introduced during that chapter.
