You can view the full color timeline in book fashion, in which case there are 21 highly readable pages. Or you can unfold the timeline (keeping the tail end attached to the book) and display it on a long table. Either way, your kids will learn about history from the beginning with Adam and Eve to the modern era when the 10 Commandments were removed from all public buildings in the U.S.
Each section of the timeline features colorful drawings and photographs, interesting text in a readable size, and fun factoids. For example, the first page features a literal 6 day creation, a paragraph about Adam and Eve, a question ("Was the fruit really an apple? Hint: look up Genesis 3."), a paragraph about Cain and Abel, and more.
Other pages feature events such as the Trojan horse, the 7 wonders of the ancient world, the first use of the yo-yo, the first batteries and lighthouses, the first military submarine, Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, the invention of television, and all the major biblical events.
The slant here is definitely toward a literal Bible, creationism, and a Christian America.
Overall Rating: Excellent.
