Book Giveaway - First Timeline

First Timeline by Mary Daly
illustrations by Ana Braga-Henebry
2007, Ye Hedge School, 38 pages, spiral-bound, Catholic

Official Review of this book-and-card set is coming soon. In the meantime we have a publisher's description for you:

"World history goes from Adam and Eve to yourself. World geography is also introduced in that characters are chosen from Europe, China, India, and Japan as well as America. The background figures of major American holidays are introduced, including Thanksgiving, Christmas, President's Day, Valentine's Day, and others. Several characters are chosen for their contributions to literacy, a fundamental interest for those learning to read; Pangur Ban the cat has his place among those.
It is not intended that the text stand alone for a year's curriculum, but it provide a simple and continuous narrative for elementary world history. Then you may use it to suggest topics for your weekly visit to the library."
