My oldest had some trouble with Egypt and her neighbors earlier this year but he likes it now and says he learns a lot from it now. We are covering Greece and Rome simultaneously with child’s history of the world. Next year I am thinking of doing the middle ages guide pretty much as written. How does a castle with many rooms compare to ancient Egypt and her neighbors in terms of chapter length and engaging text?? I also have a tag along almost 5 year old who mostly listens in…..she doesn’t much like ancient Egypt and her neighbors. They are both used to chapter books Little house, Milly Molly Mandy, penny and peter, Rascal… They like these but little sis is a wiggler;) I am thinking of maybe adding a middle ages coloring book in? They both remember boy of the pyramids. Any suggestions here?? Would a castle with many rooms be a good fit?KeriJParticipant
How old is your oldest? I can’t compare it to the Egypt book, but my 10 year old is really enjoying it. The chapters can be a bit long, but it hasn’t bothered us. I’m reading it to ages 14, 12 and 10. It’s been perfect for that group. It was a little over the heads of my 8 and 5 year olds, so they don’t join us anymore.RuralmamaParticipant
My oldest will be 7 next school year. He has liked chapter books for several years and listened to Winnie the Poo at age 2. He has a long attention span. I do wonder about the length though.
