Daily Life In The Age of Sail
by Dorthy and James Volo

This review is one of especial interest to home schoolers. Are you looking for a way to teach history? Try the Daily Life Through History series by Greenwood Press. This series gives a picture of the way people lived at different times and places. It has vivid descriptions and detail and is splendid for teaching a child about the past.
The example I am using is one of my favorites. It gives a detailed description of life in port and on ship in the sailing age. It does not give it in a dry way but in a manner that is a pleasure to read. If anything can give a child a love for history a book like this can.
One of the main problems of teaching is to make children want to learn. The atmosphere of a mass lecture, and the style of textbooks seem almost calculated to prevent that. This is not. It is interesting and fun. It can be read alone by the student. It can also be read to him by the parent-perhaps both will learn. For those that are looking for a different way to teach I recommend Daily Life Through History. And I recommend Daily Life in the Age of Sail.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Other publishers publish series of a like nature that would be worth using. The What Life Was Like series is similar, but in a more compact form-more digestibility, less information. And popular magizines regularly publish books as well. Time-Life's are an obvious choice, and they are very useful. In any case the Daily Life Through History series is one of the best of a wide selection.

Thanks for sharing this - it certainly sounds like a good book for homeschoolers. I like the examples you gave.
