My son really is fascinated by the world wars, but I remember being bored to tears in public school endlessly memorizing facts, so needless to say, I’m not excited to spend hours searching the web for resources. Luckily, I have been a long-time subscriber and came across some good resources (many of which I’ve gotten for free as a subscriber!!). Having seen the quality of her resources, I was confident that my child would love this resource … and I was right – for months our walls were covered with pages of the Story of World War II! We colored the pictures, we wrote down the facts, and we discussed the pages as a family. I highly recommend it to anyone studying World War II – even older kids who would like to review the key facts.
I’ve always been fascinated by World War II, and I’m so glad your son has enjoyed it. Thank you!
