Diana calls this set a guided tour of ancient history. This 3-disc set includes True Tales and More True Tales. These information-packed CDs are an awesome resource for parents teaching history to their children.

The information is given chronologically:

Disc One
2.Dates for Creation
3.Early Man
4.The Table of Nations
5.Discovery of Ninevah

Disc Two
1.Discovery of Troy
2.The Rosetta Stone
3.Discovery of Ur
4.Mount Sinai

Disc Three
1.The Hittites
2.The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World
3.The Biblical Prophecies of Jesus Fulfilled

There are short vignettes of history, biographies of people, and descriptions of events. As I listened to Mrs. Waring speak, I felt as though I were at a homeschool conference. I love to gain understanding, get information, and get charged up for the school year. These CDs will help you even if your education left you "historically illiterate." Diana has an enthusiasm for history that is contagious. She is so excited that I got excited. Her cheerleader-style delivery does not diminish her extensive knowledge of history. She leaves me cheering, too?GO, Diana, GO! GO, Diana, GO!
