Story of Mankind
Audience: 4th Grade - 8th Grade
Get ready for an amazing journey through time that explores familiar events, as well as the unusual in a most interesting and engaging way. History comes alive with the Greeks and the Romans, on a crusade, or in battle with Napoleon. You also travel all over the world and experience what it was like then and there. A good read and the first book to receive the Newbery Award in 1922.
The book was updated by the author's son, Gerard Willem van Loon, taking the story from 'The United States Comes of Age' through 'A Turbulent Peace'. An additional revision continues the story through 'The Earth as a Global Village.' The book concludes with an animated chronology in graphic novel fashion.
