This text follows the premise that the central theme of history is to build the kingdom of God, and that all of history is God's. It begins with the creation story and the Fall of Adam. It then uses the Bible as the foundation for how mankind and nations spread throughout the world. Finally it looks at His church and how it developed, the Reformation, and the founding and growth of the United States.

After my son finished up "Little Pilgrims in God's World" he's been waiting impatiently for the next book: History for Little Pilgrims. I ordered it a few weeks ago and when it came in he pounced on it immediately to look through it. His words were, "This is super awesome!!" I love that the lessons are short, sweet, very solid, and to the point. He loves the bright pictures and activities.
I love this book. It is a great introduction to the big events of history--and it does not leave out the Christian occurences as many secualr history books do. I am greatly pleased to be able to introduce (or reinforce) our children to the historical truths of Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Jesus, some of the early Christians, the Reformers, American history, and more. I wish every student would learn these things. Great book!
