  1. Hi all, this is a Press Minion seeing if we've fixed the forums issue. So far it's looking good. But it's only been five minutes. Let's see if this repair holds... Happy Mother's Day!
  2. Hi Paradox5, Thanks for asking. When we were deciding what to revise/update, we had to choose where to put our limited resources/money, and we ended up focusing on the booklists, coloring pages, craft templates, board games, paper dolls, review cards, etc, as we felt that the existing ones just weren't up to our 2020 standard. So we put our efforts there. The maps were, we felt, good enough. But you're right that the Volume 1 & 2 maps are superior.
  3. How's everybody doing? It's been a wild couple of weeks. We're fine, though our office staff are mostly working remotely and we're inundated with emails from parents who are suddenly homeschooling. We at The Well-Trained Mind have been serving students and parents for over 20 years. In order to help us learn how we can serve homeschoolers well in these unusual times, we're asking you to take this BRIEF (7-minute) online survey. Completing the survey before April 13th will enter you to win one of five $25 Amazon gift cards (since many of you, like us, are probably doing even more online shopping than usual). Thank you for your help! (All rules of this sweepstakes can be found here.)
  4. We are working on a revision of Volume 4, but it wouldn't be out for at least another year (Feb/March 2021).
  5. Well-Trained Mind Press is excited to announce that the Revised Editions of The Story of the World, Volume 3 and its Activity Book are now available on our store! Activity Book includes: 45 new coloring pages Brand new, beautiful boards for board games Improved art and easier-to-read directions for craft templates (including new paper dolls) Updated Book Lists that combine the best selections from the Original edition with the best of the books published in the past 10 years about the related topics New review cards for every chapter Better typesetting, easier to read and navigate Parent answer key for the map work Text includes: 48 new illustrations (of higher quality than the illustrations in the Original!) Easier to read, prettier typesetting Pronunciation guide included Revised text (this only affects about 1 percent of the text: fixing typos, etc) Timeline with associated chapters You can also purchase just the Student Pages or just the Coloring Pages (although you would then miss out on the great new book lists). Purchase the Revised Editions Frequently Asked Questions about the Revised Edition Watch Susan Wise Bauer explain the Revised Edition The physical and PDF versions are on our store now. The physical versions will also be available on Amazon and at other retailers by March 1.
  6. Hi there! We're sorry this isn't working for you. It's working fine for us on Firefox and Chrome. If you can give us some more information, it may help us fix the problem. Which browser are you using? And are you on a phone or a computer? Thank you.
  7. A W.T.M. Press employee here, just chiming in to clarify that this discussion is talking about an unofficial Facebook group called Well-Trained Mind....NOT talking about our company Facebook page (which is facebook.com/welltrainedmind). The moderators of that WTM Facebook group aren't connected with the Press or Susan in any way. We haven't banned anybody from our company Facebook page in a long time, and the ones we did ban were folks who denied the reality or distorted the size of certain historical events that happened in Europe in the 1930s and 1940s. Otherwise, we're fairly wide-open in terms of topics.
  8. Oh, I am sorry that is happening! It doesn't seem to be happening to others; I can't replicate it on my end. But we will absolutely make sure that you get only the items you want, and at the sale price. Please email support@welltrainedmind.com with the following info, which will help them help you: What items you were trying to order; What items got added to your cart; whether or not you were "logged in" to the site at the time, and what internet browser you were using. They'll make sure that you get what you need!

  12. Thanks to everyone who emailed us! We've received enough submissions, so we'll be unpinning this thread now.
  13. Hello Hive, Well-Trained Mind Press is in the early stages of revising the book-lists (fiction and non-fiction) in the Activity Book of "The Story of the World, Volume 3." We'll be adding new titles that have come out in the past 15 years (or titles that we missed the first time around!), and deleting some that are so thoroughly out of print that no parent could be expected to find them. We have a plan for doing it that we think will provide a variety of parental viewpoints, and keep any one contributor from getting stuck with too much work. We've divided the book into sections (chapters 1-7, 8-14, etc). Each section would pay a little differently, based on how many books we need to find (you'll notice that some sections need a lot more work than others do). Each contributor can do one, two, or three sections, but no more (to spread the work around). Each section will end up being a combination of the work of two contributors plus our editors. Time Frame: We will ask you to submit a sample list from a particular chapter, to evaluate your abilities. Your full booklists would be due by mid-to-late January of 2019. Here's what we consider a "successfully found" book:- age appropriate - period appropriate - in print (we make occasional exceptions if it's REALLY good) - available in physical form (you can make 1 fiction exception and 1 nonfiction exception per chapter...kindle, etc...but not more than that) - relatively easy to find - write a one-sentence summary like we did in the first edition We will provide a PDF of the original booklist, and a PDF of the actual textbook; we have gone through and crossed out the out-of-print ones or ones we want to delete, and we'll tell you how many fiction and nonfiction books are now needed for each chapter (it's usually between 2 and 8 books needed from each genre). If this interests you, and you feel you could do a good job with it, please contact Justin Moore (justin@welltrainedmind.com) for further information.
  14. Hi all...Many of you had asked about Olive Branch Books' Telling God's Story series, and wondered when Year 4 would be available. Well, the wait is over! Telling God's Story, Year 4: The Story of God's People Continues is now available as a digital download from Olive Branch Books. Author Rachel Stone takes the elementary Bible curriculum into new territory: the Book of Acts and the New Testament Epistles. These weekly lessons guide elementary students through the Scripture texts, while also deepening the understanding of parents and teachers. Each lesson provides background information for the teacher and a scripted explanation of the biblical passage designed especially for children to grasp with ease. When combined with the coloring pages, games, and review activities in the Activity Book (also now available as a PDF download), the Instructor Guide provides a whole school-year of religious instruction. To read samples, explore the whole series by Peter Enns and Rachel Stone, or purchase copies, click here. Churches and schools can contact Olive Branch Books at 1.877.322.3445 for licensing information.
  15. Lady Florida, I've updated your signature with the change you requested. For all of you: I don't have immediate answers to your questions, but I am going to work on finding out and we'll get back to you.
