    This book covers it all, from the dawn of history right up to the year 2000, for all the major civilizations, all the rulers, and all the events in world history. Pages are filled with clear, interesting accounts of historical events, realistic reconstructions of scenes, and tons of incredible photographs. More than 100 charts and maps are included, allowing you to see exactly where events took place. Besides being an intriguing book to read, this is also your link to world history on the web. After reading about a subject, go online; every link leads you to a website where you can read additional information, watch video clips, play games, see photos, and use other unique website features to experience "virtually" all of world history. I was never much for history, but I wish I had this book when I was younger; these websites look really intriguing. For a study of the ancient world you can get virtual tours of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, a virtual walking tour of Rome and Athens, learn to speak Ancient Greek, write in hieroglyphics, take interactive tours of museums, explore the Valley of Kings in Egypt and learn about the pharaohs buried there and their tombs through photos and panoramic movies, view profiles of famous Romans and Greeks, explore a clickable Roman marketplace, and loads more. Some sights are interactive, where you can, for example, reenact the Battle of Hastings, and some are treasure troves of information, maps, timelines, and diagrams.

    Note: The first 100 or so pages of the book discuss the "Prehistoric World" (starting 4,550 million years ago with the Big Bang and proceeding to 12,000 years ago when the last ice age came to an end). This section outlines evolution and likely contains objectionable material. However, the rest of the sections (Ancient World, Medieval World, Last 500 Years) are more factual and make up for the first. A colorful, captivating book. 416 pages. Stephanie

    Twelve-year-old Tirzah and her family are slaves in Egypt. Under the tyranny of Pharaoh, they must make mud bricks without straw, so Tirzah cuts grass for her father and brother. Seeing this makes the Egyptian guards angry, and they crack their whips to make the people work harder. "If only my people could escape," Tirzah thinks to herself. If only Moses could persuade Pharaoh to let them go. Their only hope is that Yahweh, the Lord God, will hear their prayers and rescue them from the cruelty of Egypt. Paperback, 160 pages. ~ Rachel P.

    This Step-Into-Reading begins with Pharaoh Tutankhamen's death and the ancient Egyptian efforts to mummify him, have his funeral, and bury him. Then it skips 3,000 years to when archeologists are exploring the Valley of the Kings looking for ancient tombs. It describes how Howard Carter discovers King Tut's tomb and briefly details his exploration of the tomb and all the amazing things he finds. Full-color illustrations and black and white photos of the actual tomb and things found there will captivate readers. 48 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    The Egyptian, Mesopotamian, Nubian and Hittite civilizations and cultures each have their own section in this early history unit study. It all starts with a parallel timeline of the four cultures, with approximate and actual dates noted, so you can see what was happening in each of these civilizations simultaneously. The time period addressed is from the first Egyptian pharaoh, about 5,000 years ago, to the defeat of Queen Cleopatra by Octavian (30 BC). An introduction gives you some background into the locations and basic history of the cultures. Each civilization contains units on architecture, clothing, writing, work, food and religion, accompanied by one or several activities. So children can make a model Egyptian boat as they learn about trade on the Nile River, make Sebetu Rolls as they learn about Mesopotamian dietary habits, make a shaduf as they learn about farming in Nubia, or write in cuneiform as they learn a little about Hittite law. All of the activities accurately reflect ancient methods and customs and can be completed with common (mostly household) materials. Anybody for a little Hittite Hummus on those crackers?

    Frogs, frogs everywhere! You probably already know about Moses and the plague of frogs that invaded Ancient Egypt when the Pharaoh wouldn't let the Israelites go. This illustrated hardback puts the story into fun rhyming verses influenced by Hebrew traditions that have been handed down. That in itself makes this a great little discussion starter about the traditional Hebrew culture – Moses is spelled traditionally like "Moshe," and the Lord's name is spelled "G-d." 32 pgs. –Chad

    The study of Ancient Egypt is a treat for young and old alike. Where else in history do you find gigantic pyramids, perfectly preserved mummies, cat goddesses, and linen kilts? I know I can't resist a good book about Ancient Egypt, and when I came across this one, I was intrigued both by the content and also by the fact that it's published by Master Books, a Christian publisher most well-known for their creation science materials. I knew I was really in for a treat! Not only is this book absolutely gorgeous, but most importantly for believers, it strives to give a more accurate chronology by using the historical records that all writers on Ancient Egypt use, plus the Hebrew Bible. This gives us a more complete picture of the ancient world as a whole and how the Egyptian culture (which did not exist in isolation) interacted with other cultures. This book takes readers on a tour of Ancient Egypt chronologically, from the first dynasty to the last dynasties. The first 27 chapters each focus on a dynasty (or a portion of one) and examine the archaeology and other records of the time period to suggest possible dates for important events. The last two chapters bring everything together, focusing on the issue of dating and providing a biblically-based set of dates for Egyptian history. You'll not only get a very complete look at the entire Egyptian civilization, but you'll also find references to biblical accounts as well as discussion on assigning dates using a variety of references. Throughout, the reader is treated to full-color captioned photos of the architecture, artifacts, and art of the times. Each chapter begins with a basic timeline on the dynasty being examined, with traditional dates vs. the authors' suggested revised dates, kings reigning during that time, events in Egyptian history, and corresponding events in biblical history. As a bonus, a DVD is included which features David Down, one of the authors, visiting and discussing the pyramids and the temples. The 86-minute DVD presents similar information as in the book, but with video of the sites and terrific commentary for all those audio learners. Although the whole package is a little bit pricey, this is an awesome resource that will doubtlessly enhance your studies in a whole new way! 221 pgs, hc.

    If you have a child interested in Egypt, you can't pass up this amazing book. It is presented as a reproduction of a journal that was written by an explorer in 1926, with the actual author and illustrator taking no credit anywhere in the book. The oversized journal has a scrapbook feel. It's a hardcover book, wrapped in gold with red plastic jewel inlays to embellish the appearance. As you follow the course of the explorer, Emily Sand, on her expedition, each spread of the book tells you about different aspects of Egypt and exploration in the 1920s. Learn about pyramids, pharaohs, the Egyptian gods, hieroglyphics, mummies, and more. It is a compelling read and has a fun, interactive format. The book is mostly factual in content, with casual remarks from Emily to reinforce the journal-like facade of the book. Text looks like it came from an old typewriter, and italic handwriting describes the sketches and illustrations. There are authentic looking papyrus pull-outs, mini-books, fold-out maps, postcards, ticket stubs, and even a sample of mummy cloth Emily found on her trip. As Emily's expedition team searches for the lost tomb of Osiris, they learn much about ancient Egyptian history until they mysteriously disappear, leaving the rest of the journal blank. While other books may contain more information about Egypt, this one gives a great overview and is packaged so attractively that I'm sure many kids will mistake it for an authentic scrapbook from a 1920s trip to Egypt. Contains 30 pgs full of text, illustrations, and pull-outs, measures 10"x12", hc. ~ Rachel

    Many people have heard of Nefertiti, Cleopatra, and King Tut, but not of Hatshepsut. Hatshepsut was a remarkable woman who was born into a royal family around 1530 B.C. She started out as princess and then queen, and she eventually became Pharoah, the King of Egypt. There was simply nobody to hand down the title of king to after her husband passed away, so naturally she took his title. Nobody seemed to mind until about twenty years after her death. Someone then tried to erase all traces of Hatshepsut from history. Her statues were lugged off of their bases, smashed, and buried. Her pictures were scratched out of the scenes on temple walls. Nobody knows for sure why, but there is speculation that Egyptians began to feel that the idea of a female pharaoh was unnatural and perhaps wanted to cover up the fact that one ever existed. This book is loaded with all kinds of information, giving us a glimpse into royal Egyptian life. You will learn about Hatshepsut's life as a princess including vivid descriptions of her environment, what she wore, toys she may have played with, people she interacted with, her education, feasts and festivals. Moving on to the queen and mother stage of her life, we learn about her husband and child, Egyptian society in general, and life and death in the court. Lastly, we watch Queen Hatshepsut become the Pharoah of Egypt around 1501 B.C. Each page is peppered with pictures of artifacts, archeological sites, translated inscriptions, and interesting tidbits. The glossary in the back of the book is sure to clear up any confusion as far as terms the reader may not be familiar with.
