Worthwhile issue

I particularly enjoyed this issue! Learned so much about the Mongols. Loved the story about Khutulun -- Honest History consistently does a nice job of highlighting women's stories.

Incredible educational publication!

This is really more like a book than a magazine. I was impressed with the quality of it: the cover and pages were much thicker and better made than any magazine I have ever received. The illustrations are wonderful and the information contained is top-notch. I love how it includes everything about the subject (in this case, The Steppes/Mongols): the history, the geography, climate, notable people, traditional attire, customs, activities and more. I am thoroughly impressed! At first I thought this seemed expensive for a magazine subscription but since you are truly receiving a reference book on each subject - it’s well worth the cost!
Also - I love how it gives thorough and detailed information but is not too wordy. It is just enough to keep my 9 year old super interested.
Highly recommend to all parents who want their kids to learn more about history, geography, culture and more (and parents too - I think I enjoyed this as much as my son and I used to be a history major in college)!


What a fact-filled, artistic, and interesting magazine for the whole family!


Received this one but the other two in description did not arrive with it?
