Staff Reviews


This book will give you double-dose of history.  First, it's exactly like it says on the cover:  the story of mankind from prehistoric to modern times.  Second, it's the first ever winner of the Newbery Medal.  No dry academic tome, this account, while based in fact, is unabashedly subjective.  Van Loon is sometimes snarky, occasionally biased, and always passionate about his subject matter.  He makes history personal by sucking you into the narrative and never letting you lose track of a moment's context.  While it might not hold up to the rigors of journalistic scrutiny, reading this book kept history in my head more than any textbook I ever got in school while keeping me interested in the story and making me fall in love with the author. -Sarah's January Staff Pick, 2015
