World History books

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for some World History books for an 8th/9th grader to go along with Big History Project.


I don't want to do Guns, Germs and Steel as he will do that for a Human Geography course the following year. Instead, we will be watching the 3 year documentary.


I want slightly easier reads and maybe shorter books. I see that what I have planned so far is very science heavy, so want to add in at least 1-2 books on the broader view of world history rather than on specific civilisations and time periods.


I'm also thinking about maybe adding a World Religions book in there if I can't find the kind of books I am looking for.
