Filled with stories, activities, and tons of information, Asia: Its People and History by Bonnie Rose Hudson is a wonderful resource for Christian parents seeking to introduce their children to the people of Asia and the wealth of history about the area.
With her desire to bring history to life, Hudson has created a phenomenal, engaging, and informative resource designed for children ages 8 to 12. The curriculum is divided into sixteen weeks that can be stretched or compressed to best fit your schedule. Each section contains a story, discussion questions, and activities to make learning come alive. Links to downloadable information make it easy to find what you’re looking for more of. After the Answer Key, you’ll find a list of resources that includes suggested reading, in addition to a special free offer from the author. I plan to share my copy with a homeschooling mom I know.
This curriculum will inspire children to learn more. Highly recommended.

I received a copy of this book from the author. This review contains my honest opinions, which I have not been compensated for in any way.
Clara Barton, West Point, the Gulf War, Labor Day, trains, mosquitoes, the Kentucky Derby, The Wizard of Oz and the Girl Scouts. What do these things all have in common?
These people, places, things and many more can be found in Kenneth C. Davis’s latest book, Don’t Know Much About Anything Else.
Davis makes learning fun for people of all ages. Broken down into nine different sections, the author brings you along on an enjoyable adventure to learn more about the people, places, and things you have read about in school or in books. Each topic begins with a brief introduction and is followed with a short series of questions whose answers you’ll find on the next page. Living only 15 minutes from Thedor (Dr. Seuss) Geisel’s childhood home, I was thrilled to see a page dedicated to this famous children’s author. (Check out Page 45)
A fun, easy and interesting way to learn more about the world we live in and the people who have made a difference. Teachers could use this book to encourage a love of learning in young people and readers will enjoy testing their family and friends about what they know. There’s only one problem with this book–it’s addicting.
I can’t wait until Davis comes out with another Don’t Know Much About title.
