Land Of The Pharaohs

Saturday, April 24, 2010
A chapter book with about as many pictures as a picture book! 
Ideal for early or struggling readers!

#1 - Land of the Pharaohs by David Hernandez, Tommy Nelson Publishing, 2003
Land of the Pharaohs (The Adventures of Toby Digz)
Genre: Historical Fiction/Fantasy (The characters go back in time and the focus is on learning the history rather than the fanciful way of getting back in time)
Target Audience: Boys primarily, but some girls as well, 10-14
Subjects: Friendships, trust in God, history of the Exodus
Summary: Toby Digz and his friends take a trip back in time to Egypt in the time of the Exodus to learn about the country, the time period, the event and a few things about God Himself.
Notes: This book is written in such a way as to be fiction, learning about history. It reminds me alot of the secular books: The Magic Tree House series, but focusing on Biblical history rather than more recent history. It would be an excellent book for a struggling reader - short chapters, large text, pictures to help explain the story, but still a chapter book rather than a little kid's book.
Recommendation Scale: 5
