In 1966, Hillyer's "trilogy" [A Child's History of the World, A Child's Geography of the World, A Child's History of Art (co-authored with E. G. Huey)] was reproduced as a revised and enlarged edition of fourteen volumes, with new material incorporated by E. G. Huey and with the addition of an Educator's Handbook. These revised volumes were printed on high quality paper with sewn bindings and entitled Young People's Story of Our Heritage. They were published by Meredith Press, with reprints done by Children's Press. Hillyer's material was updated to include historical developments and geographical changes through 1966, many vivid illustrations and photographs were added, and the books were rewritten at a more mature level. While the older Hillyer history and geography books were written in a chatty, conversational, almost sing-song style, the revisions are written in a lively but more sophisticated prose. The text of the revised art volumes is nearly identical to the first editions. The minor wording changes are slight improvements, in my opinion, but with the inclusion of numerous, clear, colorful art reproductions.
