What ages would you recommend Christine Miller's "The Story of the Ancient World? as independent reading?

I have a 7 year old who's forte is reading.


Eeek! You could copy and paste some of the samples into word, and it has a feature that tells reading level. Can't remember how it works anymore, sorry!


Generally I hear the Guerber books referred to as middle school, probably in part because of the older language. I think they would work fine for a little younger kids. CW uses Guerber in several of their models geared to 4th and 5th grade.


With a 7yo I would probably be hesitant, unless they are just a serious history lover. Even then I would be ready to step in and read them aloud if needed.
