"[Knowledge Quest] maps are ideal for the grammar stage learner; they are
uncluttered, accurate, and perfect for coloring. I highly recommend them as a
simple and yet effective way to develop the young student's geographical awareness
of the ancient world."
Susan Wise Bauer, author of "The Story of the World",
volumes 1,2 &3 and co-author of "The Well-Trained Mind"
This is an engaging and
spiritually rewarding compilation of biographies of fascinating people in the
Middle Ages. I learned a lot from this enriching book, and enjoyed not only the
stories, but the beautiful maps and illustrations.

"Hooray! Knowledge Quest's latest offering fills yet another gap
in the resources currently available to parents and teachers who seek to help their
students make connections between key events as they trace the quiet sovereignty of
God in history. Wonders of Old offers a paper-based alternative to wall or computer
timeline versions that is well-planned, attractive and affordable! The student that
does careful and consistent work in this volume will have an informative, enduring
keepsake to which he can refer in years to come."
Marcia Somerville, author of Tapestry of Grace
"WOW! I don't know how else to type my reaction to this new
product from Knowledge Quest. This is a beautiful, beautiful, book. It is one of
those rare books that not only looks good, it feels good in your hands. An
oversize, hardbound volume, the cover is a work of art in itself. I really believe
the care and love that have gone into the production of this book will inspire it's
young owners to cherish and respect it and its contents."

If you love history like I love
history, then you will really enjoy this book. As the third book in the What Really
Happened series, it delivers what you would expect - inspiring biographies,
beautiful illustrations and great maps. Not only are the stories historically
accurate, but they are lively and entertaining as well. Read this book aloud to
your family and you will better understand this exciting time in

"We love these maps. What an incredibly helpful tool! Children
seem to gain so much from visualizing geographically what they are studying. I
think this is a wonderful product and would enhance any study of history."

"I LOVE your timelines, Terri! As anyone with wrinkled, ripped or
otherwise marred attempts at a timeline can attest, you want the hard work of your
timeline to last. Knowledge Quest timelines are not only lovely, but they are
sturdy and durable. Terri, a homeschool mother of four, knows the needs of [parents
and teachers] from the inside. The quality of her products reflect that, enhancing
your study of history while making it easier and more enjoyable. Thanks,
Diane Wheeler, senior staff writer for The Old Schoolhouse
Terri Johnson and her contributing authors have
done it again! What Really Happened in Ancient Times is a compilation of stories
which bring ancient history a little closer to home. From Eve to Constantine,
fascinating tales are woven together to give us a better idea of what may have
taken place so long ago. Historical records often only afford mere glimpses into
the lives of those who lived thousands of years before us. By weaving what
information we have available into colorful stories, ancient history comes alive! I
love the illustrations in this volume, and of course, the map illustrations are
second to none!
Suarez, Publisher, The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine
"Besides the gratitude I want to
extend to you for your fabulous products, I also want to mention the
appreciation I feel for your efforts of research and attention to the details
of quality you have applied to them. Last March I ordered your spring
specials 2 and 3. Simply unrolling your timelines inspired us to
overhaul our entire spare room into a homeschool space worthy of their
"I just found your blog today, I don't know how I missed it as
we've been using your products for years :). I read your about me page and just
wanted to say thanks for being so transparent. It was like reading a page from my
life. It's nice to know that someone else argues about how to print labels, lacks
sleep and struggles with confidence in this industry. Just thought you should know
that I found your bio to be very encouraging this morning ;)." - Paige
"Thank you Todd for your help and yes I was able to order! Yay and
Thank you Terri for making downloading simple. Like I told you Todd I wish that I
had this 2 years ago, but hey looks like I'm going to teach my favorite
subject-History once again. I will be able to teach my two homeschoolers with some
great materials. These maps are the greatest! Blessings to you both and to
Knowledge Quest." - Frances
"Hello, I called you a few weeks ago with questions about your
blackline maps. The next day I ordered the CDs, and today I finally had a chance to
look at the maps and print them off. They are wonderful! I am using the Well
Trained Mind book as a guide for homeschooling my two children, and these maps will
be a great addition to our history study this coming year. It's so nice to have the
maps all in order, with some questions to go along with them, and to have geography
all laid out for us to learn easily and in a fun way! Thank you so much for this!"
"Terri, I recently received your Middle Ages maps...excellent,
superb, just what I needed and had not been able to find elsewhere!!"
"I just had to write to tell you how thrilled I was to find out
about your company! I have been homeschooling for 9 years and, like you, have never
been happy with the maps that have been available. I will definitely be spreading
the word about you to my friends and the moms in my support group."
"I got mine today! I love them! I love the convenience! My son
loves them! Why didn't I order these earlier instead of spending hours scouring the
internet for maps that didn't quite work?" -
"We are enjoying using the maps CD. Wish I had discovered it 13
years ago. I have spent so many hours searching for maps to go with our studies

school convention this year and love them all!" -
"The maps are awesome! Thanks!!!" -
"I own and absolutely LOVE your CD of World History Maps. I use it
with all of my kids." - Heidi
"I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how WONDERFUL
your maps are! I just love to use maps in school; it makes everything so clear. And
your maps are perfect for each unit we study. It's great to have a resource like
this instead of having to paw through numerous books to find maps and then have to
shrink them or enlarge them to suit the need! I have recommended your maps to many
people." - Sue
"I received my complete set of maps and am very happy with them."
"I purchased the KnowledgeQuest maps for this time period and they
have been a terrific addition! All three kids (11,9,6) have learned a great deal."

you for making them. Wow." -

never could find anything just right." -

Quest maps. They have been great!!" -
"My blackline maps from www.knowledgequestmaps.com just arrived
today and they look great! Check them out to see if it's what you are looking for."
"I had not heard of Blackline Maps of World History by Knowledge
Quest previously, but read about it this summer, bought it sight unseen, and it
looks great! I like the lesson plan questions in the beginning pages, too."
"Thank you very much, Terri. I received the maps today and they
look excellent." - Kristi

wonderful!!" - Bridget

really enjoy doing map work now." -

that you are making the set of unlabeled maps. There's no way I could have made
them look this good! Thanks again"-
