DK’s Big Ideas Simply Explained Series: An excellent resource for homeschoolers

Like many children, our daughter absolutely loves DK’s encyclopedias. She can read them for hours at a time. I happened to stumble on their “Big Ideas Simply Explained” series this morning looking for a resource to use for our 4th grade Philosophy and Religion course. I ended up buying a bunch of these because they are so outstanding.

These books are sort of like a survey course in college in that they briefly introduce the major contributors to each subject and their ideas. But the content is explained in such plain language that even young children could follow the discussion.

They have philosophy, sociology, psychology, economic, business, world religions, and many more. It’s an excellent way to raise a culturally literate child.
