Sonlight's complete Intro to World History program takes two full years. If you have the time to do all of Sonlight B and C, that's still my top recommendation. You'll enjoy many more favorite books, and you'll get a deeper, richer study of history.
But not everyone feels they can spend two years on World History. Perhaps you are new to Sonlight and would prefer to only wait a year until the joy of American History in Sonlight D and E.
Whatever your circumstances, if you would prefer to only spend a year, rather than do only the first half (Sonlight B) or the second half (Sonlight C) of World History, I recommend this one-year condensed program. Although, of course, I had to leave some things out, it's my best effort to slim down our two-year program to a single year.
Student: 2-3 hrs | Parent: 1.5 -2 hrs

The 2 Readers package is ideal for children who have progressed to reading long-vowel, 5- and 6-letter words with moderate fluency. By the end of the program they will have progressed to reading chapter books.
The Beginner's Bible, with full-color illustrations and simple text, takes up a good portion of the academic year.
The 17 additional titles (!) are a truly amazing collection of early readers. My daughter once got the entire set of early readers from a publisher to try to find some alternatives … and, to her happy surprise, didn't find one that she preferred.
There are some funny stories (Mouse Tales, Amelia Bedelia). Some history (Titanic: Lost and Found, Pompeii: Buried Alive! and Hill of Fire). Some historical fiction (Wagon Wheels, The Big Balloon Race, The Sword in the Tree). And three of the beautiful Frog and Toad books, funny and poignant. (Oh! And a detective story, which somehow matches the tone of Sam Spade in The Maltese Falcon, but written for young children! Incredible!)
This is a witty, charming, interesting collection for early readers.
