    The Story of Mankind revolutionized former methods of telling history. It received the first Newbery Medal for the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children. Nevertheless, critics and public alike hailed it as a book for all ages. Van Loon recounts history as living news, relating everything in the past to the present. The two readers do a wonderful job of conveying van Loon's warm and humanistic history of mankind for children of all ages. The book The Story of Mankind was featured as one of the few books thought worthy of being salvaged from an earth about to be destroyed by colliding planets in the George Pal sci-fi classic 'When Worlds Collide', for good reason.

    Mankind The Story of All of Us is an epic hour television event about the greatest adventure of all time—the history of the human race. It takes 10 billion years for the ideal planet to form. "The Story of Mankind" by Hendrik Willem Van Loon is a tale of mankind's development from the nothingness of the origins of the planet through modern day science and technology. Written early in the 20th century, the information in the novel is clearly dated, but still manages to provide a base for young readers as to the origins of man.
