A Little History Of The World: Free Videos, Resources For Kids

Ever since our two-week trip to Athens during the June holidays (will update on that eventually), I’ve been hooked on a book that I bought some years back from Books Actually but never completed, titled A Little History Of The World. (It’s also available on Book Depository, and there’s a new illustrated edition that I’m planning to order for the kids!)

I’ve never been much interested in Western history, or history in general, but I’ve since used the audiobook, the educator’s guide, as well as animated videos, documentaries, and re-enactments to try and better understand the stories in the book, and I now find it quite fascinating!

Here is a list of resources, and I’ll update it as I stumble upon new material. It’s mostly for my own reference, but perhaps it might be useful for you too, if you’re thinking of doing some home learning projects.
