Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really wanted to love this curriculum but the fact is that, while we are learning some new things, there are several main reasons I would likely not recommend it or purchase another volume.

First and foremost, there are numerous discrepancies within the book. Today we were reading about Bethlehem and there's a photo caption which states that it is now a city of more than 60,000. On the same page, the body of the text reads the city has a population of more than 185,000. Which is it? I've come across several of these types of discrepancies which causes me to question the accuracy of everything.

Typos - the book is full of them. I'm not above making them myself but don't expect them in a professionally published educational text. It's almost as if there was no editor whatsoever.

Photos often don't go with text and are difficult to make out - especially those in black and white. If the students are to imagine what something may look like then that should be stated. Otherwise we're looking for a photo that does not exist. Most photos are also quite small and therefore not very meaningful.

While I appreciate the effort and intent I'm sorry to say I can't recommend it. My kids (at least one of them) is generally interested in any read aloud and even he's not liking this book. I've been cheerleading it and supplementing with photos and videos online (lots of videos out there on whirling dervishes and Noah's Ark) but not sure we'll make it out of Egypt.

Format: Paperback
I have been reading through this curriculum and I have found it interesting. But... I've had this reoccurring thought that this is not the right curriculum for my family. I do believe, though, that many families will enjoy it and be encouraged by it. I will explain in the course of this review why it's a great curriculum. At the end, I'll try and explain why it's just not the right fit for my family.

Previously, I reviewed Volume I and enjoyed it. The first book was essentially an earth science curriculum. This second book explores the Middle East from both a historical and current cultural perspective. It blends history and cultural studies. The book explores the countries of Turkey, Israel, Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan. For each lesson, there is a reading lesson, a section for field notes (students are asked to speak into a recorder about their observations as they imagine traveling through the land), lists of locations to record on maps, art/cooking/music activities, and suggested prayer lists. My favorite part of the lessons were the prayer sections. I thought the authors did a wonderful job of making suggestions for how we can pray with our children for the people who live in this region of the world.

An example from the Israel lesson is "Lord, may the people who live within her borders live at peace with their neighbors. May they learn to love each other as You patiently love us. We pray for godly wisdom for the world's governments as decisions are made regarding this region of the world and may Your will be accomplished," p. 71

I enjoyed the reading lessons as well as the activities. There are pictures, both color and black and white, scattered through the lessons.

This book is a gem! It is written conversationally, and is engaging without being patronizing. It is written from a distinctly Christian viewpoint, but treats the people of this non-Christian region with a great deal of respect. There are narration prompts at the end of each section and either a recipe, poem or craft at the end of each chapter. It also has a few suggestions for supplemental reading. We love this book! I hope that the authors will write other volumes (and quickly, we are almost done with this one!)

Knowledge Quest has done a phenomenal job creating this new study on the Middle East. Our family has thoroughly enjoyed the arm-chair-style narrative of the countries of this region, countries often heard about but often misunderstood. As a family we want to develop a love for this part of the world, and this study has provided an excellent foundation! We would highly recommend this study and others by this company (A child's Geography is another family favorite)

I'm embarrassed to admit all I do not know about the Middle East, yet given the current political climate, shouldn't we all know more about this region? "A Child's Geography" is a great book for parents and kids to learn about how the region birthed God's plan for humanity, and how humanity is living out God's plan there even today.

I love how personal the book is.....the current pictures of the people, their homes - the Holy Lands become very real as you read this book. Lots of great teaching tools, too - "Field Notes" to guide a child's narration of the information; a "Travel Log" guides you through some important map work; "Bringing It Home" gives art, music, and food suggestions with lots of websites for enrichment (like playing "senet," an ancient Egyptian game, etc.)

Highly recommeded for education and fun!
