Does anyone have one? How do you like it?

I've also been trying to figure out if it is a secular resource or not but am having no luck as of yet.

Thanks for any info!

starts in the late BCs so it doesn't cover the dinosaur eras or anything like that. It doesn't include the timeline figures so you can use Sonlights or just do your own. You could make it secular or religious.

It is primarily a secular resource. I think there might be a few references to something you could put in from the IG that is religious but you certainly don't have to add those things. For us it is a great reference to help tie everything together and to go back and look at.

Thanks for the responses.

It sounds like something I could technically make but maybe it's worth the $ since it's laid our for you along with the timeline figures?

We like ours - it is durable. The paper is good.

However, it doesn't come with the figures included. I wasn't sure if you thought that or not? The figures are purchased separately. It is a blank book. I'm glad I just purchased one instead of making one. It is usable year to year (the actual value of it as it comes together).

I actually did but someone cleared that up for me over at Mothering. I plan to follow history ala WTM so Sonlight's breakdown of history figures in their timeline packages doesn't work for me. However, another Mothering poster pointed me to the History Through the Ages 2 CD collection here so I just may do that.

Rainbow Resource carries it too. I am anxiously awaiting mine. :) I use SL, but I wanted some other figures, and honestly with 3 (soon 4) kids, paying each level each kid for the sheets made the CD worth it to me.

There is a group on yahoo groups called hannah_hs_helps. She has timeline figures that you can print out for free. We also own history through the ages timeline figures but I actually use the ones at hannah_hs_helps more.

Forgot to add, I definitely think it's worth the money and you can usually find them used on Ebay or www.homeschoolclassifieds.com

We bought the book of time when we did SL 1+2. The next year we did WP AS 1 and we used the Book of time with both programs timeline figures. I plan to continue to use it as we go through history. We really like it here.

Wooly, I would love to check out the ones on hanna_hs_helps. Do you have a link to the website? I searched Yahoo Groups to no avail.

TIA!

at www.guesthollow.com. Print the pages, 3 hole punch and stick them in a 3 ring notebook. We're using SL this year, but had to be creative with how to piece it together. I looked at my IG and saw what timeline figures there were and googled those and found images that printed for them to use on their timelines. I have to admit, finding all the images was time consuming, but I did it during the summer when I had the time. If I had the extra, I'd buy one of those wonderful CD's.

HTH,
Patty
