To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The way it written, how the colorful stickies and highlights and even the fonts all of it helps my son remember and understand what he’s reading. I got the Math and English too from the same author and publisher. Very good books!
Disappointed and disturbed. It only took me 5 minutes to see this book is written from a heavily modern Progressive/Communist slant, going on and on about progressivism (though true progressivism in the 1800's was a helpful ideal, not the Communist hijacked Democratic Party of today). In fact the definition this book gives Communism is a system where the people own and control everything. If you think you believe this make sure to read the Communist Manifesto and research Marx, Lenin and Stalin. It also gives suspiciously incomplete definitions of facism and socialism. There is a decidedly negative attitude towards America in this book, of course suggesting imperialism, since that is a favorite accusation of modern Progressives. Also, it states that the first Thanksgiving is a "myth." This is the revisionist history being taught in our schools. It's meant to destroy our sense of nationalism and move us into global Socialism...Communism. Do NOT take any history book first printed in this century for truth without doing research. I like Abeka history curriculum for one excellent alternative.
Very disappointed with the content of book since the author has chosen to decide what is or isn’t a myth in our American history. A young reader will come away with the author’s viewpoint and not the facts.
