{Book List} Story of the World Volume 4 – Chapter Books

This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, visit my disclosure page 

I made a picture book list to correspond to Volume 4 of Story of the World for my 1st and 2nd graders who will be joining us for history time. However, I also have a 4th grader to think about. She will love all the wonderful picture books but she will want some reading of her own. I created a much shorter book list of chapter books and more advanced readers for her. There is not a book for every chapter because I know that some books might take her more than 1 week to read. So this is not a comprehensive list by any means but these few chapter books will be a great addition to our history year.

  1. Thank you. This will be very helpful. Some of the books are familiar but others are not, and I think my kids will enjoy many of them

  2. This is a great list! How was Story of the World Volume 4 with a first grader? This year I have a 4th grader and a 1st grader. The past several years we have used Story of the World Volume 1-3. This year I was looking at doing Volume 4 but when I called the company they said it would not be appropriate for a 1st grader. I’ve considered taking a year off and maybe doing a year of Early American History with Masterbooks. Do you have any recommendations?

    1. We tried it. I don’t think my younger ones got much out of it. We have switched to Masterbooks America’s Story and that was a better fit for my kids. So, I think you might want to consider America’s Story. We completed one book per semester since there isn’t a ton of reading. And we added a few extra books. Or you could easily finish one book in a year and add lots of extra literature. We’re bookworms here!
