This book profiles different periods in history and also quizzes about them. Students can learn as much checking the quiz answers as from reading the book- I learned a few things! On the down side I have a few complaints- it's few modern details are out of date (like the USSR being around...), it calls the time of the dinosaurs part of history (history only counts the time when people recorded things- dinos are prehistory, Asian history is completely left out, and their "Wild West" "cowboys and Indians" bit is racist and out of date. On the other hand, most of the sections they do cover are covered well in an interesting way. ( )
