Carylee Gressman has developed some really neat books for homeschoolers or parents who wish to further their child’s art education. Her method uses the natural progression of history and includes simple step-by-step drawings which most children will find easy enough to follow. I hesitate to give an age limit on this, as some children’s motor skills are more advanced than others at various ages.

Along with the drawings are simple lessons on history and the object being drawn. For instance, in the Greece and Rome: c.600 B.C. TO A.D. 395, there are snippets of information on the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Parthenon and other time specific places, people and animals.

Geared toward the homeschool market, the books unabashedly take a creationist approach (Creation Through Jonah is one title).

We can recommend these books both for their educational value as well as their overall content.

Draw and Write Through History (Creation through Jonah, Volume 1)

Draw and Write Through History Greece and Rome (2)

Draw and Write: The Vikings, the Middle Ages, and the Renaissance
