A Child's Geography: Explore the Holy Land
Volume 2: Explore the Holy Land by Ann Voskamp
Grade Level: 1-6 grades
Page Count: 275 softcover book + CD-ROM
Iraq, Jordan, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Turkey... your family probably hears or reads about these names frequently. In an increasingly complex world, it is vitally important that children learn to see the world through their Creator's eyes. As we explore the Holy Land you and your family will delight in incredible, mysterious landscapes, hidden wonders and beautiful peoples - all created in God's image. We will travel through the lands of Scripture, discovering familiar Biblical landmarks, such as the possible resting place of Noah's Ark, the remains of the Tower of Babel, the tracks of Moses up to the peak of Mount Sinai.
If we found the source of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, might we find the Garden of Eden? Why is that wall in Jerusalem called the Wailing Wall? What unbelievable wonders might we find in the desert sands of Egypt? What do Babylon, Nineveh and Ur all have in common? What country in the world is the holy land of millions but you won't find a church anywhere? Can you follow the trail where Moses once walked to find the Lost City of Stone? Come, discover the answers to those wonderings and more... explore the modern Middle East, its vast deserts and hidden palaces of Saudi Arabia, its fantastic marsh island homes of the Ma'dan peoples of Iraq, and its resourceful Bedouin tribes who scatter across the the sands of the Middle East.
This is a complete, stand-alone Geography and History Curriculum. Pair with Explore the Classical World for a thorough study of the geography and history of the Ancient World.

I've read through all 198 pages of A Child's Geography: Explore the Holy Land. And this really IS the best geography guidebook I've seen for the K-6th grade set. (And I've seen a lot over 10 years of homeschooling.) I believe that my favorite thing about Vol. II is the respectful way the people of each country are treated. They are presented as beautiful, and as made in God's image. ~ Holly, homeschooling mother of seven
