Product Description

Make the ancient world come alive!

With this captivating narrative, you will explore all that made Egypt famous: her powerful pharaohs; the mystery of her hieroglyphs; her unique art, pervading religion, and towering pyramids.

But you will also discover the stories of her neighbors, far and near, as you read about the secrets of a chalk horse and giant stones in Great Britain, the puzzle of a vanished people in the Indus Valley, the charging bull that the Ancient Minoans could not leap over, why writing on turtle shells assured a lasting dynasty in Ancient China, and much more.

Ancient Egypt and Her Neighbors

  • gives your child a wonderful panorama of the ancient world with its diverse cultures and civilizations.
  • agrees with the Biblical account of creation and the beginning of man. You will find no evolutionary comments or allusions to millions of years and savage humans.
  • brings a personal element to history by telling the stories of real people to whom your child can relate.
  • is appropriate and interesting for young and old. This title is recommended as the family history spine book for the Genesis through Deuteronomy and Ancient Egypt module in the SCM Curriculum Guide (replacing the out-of-print Oxford book).
  • supports the worship of the one true God and a Biblical worldview. The author clearly explains the beliefs of ancient civilizations but does not sensationalize or condone them.
  • lays a solid foundation and shows how fascinating world history can be!

    So far we are enjoying it. It’s so helpful to have something that goes along with the curriculum. I was usually able to find supplemental material at the library but it was time consuming and not always the “fit” I wanted. Now that we are living overseas, that is not an option so it’s great to have this book!

    Any chance books like this good be in Kindle format in the future? The PDF is difficult to read on our eReader. This is not as important with the books that I read (i.e. the history handbook) but my 6-year-old daughter wants to read this herself. Knowing how she has read and re-read your other materials, I know she would eat this up, however she can’t read the PDF well enough – the font is too small and, if we zoom in, then it is too difficult for her to navigate. We would love to see your electronic materials become more kid-friendly! (The 4 stars, instead of 5, are simply because we are limited to make this a read-aloud.)

      Glad you’re enjoying it!

      We are hoping to start trickling out more of our exisiting books in Kindle and EPUB formats. (We’re not ready to say when yet because we’re waiting on software updates that are out of our control.) If you log in when you purchase e-books, your purchases will be associated with your account. Then when we add more e-book formats you’ll be able to log back in and download the other versions at no additional charge.

    We have the audio cd’s and my kids, ages 5 and 7 absolutely EAT IT UP! They ask to listen over and over and are constantly telling me about the things they are learning from it (this year, this was not our module, so they just listen to it for fun sometimes), and I am loving the bits I have heard–Sonya is a very gifted narrator. My daughter says “it is very interesting to hear about everything like all the wars and I love that she [Sonya] tells me that ‘we know there is one true God, but they believed in many gods’”–great to be able to listen to something from a trusted Biblical worldview. We are excited to use this when we get to this module–thank you again for such a great resource. Love it!

    I was excited to see that the audiobook was the same price as the ebook, and thrilled to let someone else read this to my children, since we do lots of read alouds in our schooling and my voice gets tired. We’re enjoying the book, however, I was frustrated to discover that the entire book is one large “track”. That makes it difficult to copy onto my phone or iPad for listening on the go (because it’s such a large file) and also makes it challenging to find our place in the book to start listening where we left off. I have to remember to write down the time at the end of each chapter to know where to start up again the next time. This would definitely get 5 stars if each chapter was a separate track.

      Thanks for your feedback on the audiobook download. Did you notice that the file has chapter markers in it so that you can jump to each chapter? In iTunes, you should see a menu called “Chapters” while the audiobook is playing that will let you select the chapter you want. It looks like iOS 7 doesn’t allow this on an iPad, unfortunately, but it should be there in earlier versions.
