New book series from Knowledge Quest!

We are so excited to let you know that we are the new publishers for a series of books entitled A Child's Geography.  There are currently two books in the series.  Here are the details for the second volume:

A Child's Geography: Explore the Holy Land by Ann Voskamp & Tonia Peckover

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.

Over the course of 16 chapters and nearly 280 pages of text, explore six Middle Eastern countries with
~ engaging text of a "living-book"
~Field Notes (narration prompts)
~Travel Logs (notebooking & mapping activites)
~Bringing it Home suggestions that focus on art, music, poetry and food of each country,
~Prayer Walk for each country
Do you and your children desire to catch a passion for God and all His peoples around this glorious globe? 
Come. Let's go into all the world.

Testimonial:

  • "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

Heidi's Review:

Much like its predecessor, Explore His Earth - Volume 1 of A Child’s Geography, Volume 2 – Explore the Holy Land is an excellent geography resource and one that I would highly recommend.  This book is divided into 16 chapters, covering 6 Middle Eastern countries (Turkey, Israel, Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan).  Various scheduling options are recommended to spread this course out over an entire school year.

Each chapter of A Child’s Geography, Volume 2 is divided into several sections:

·        The readings – these may be read all at once, or divided into two sections, they may be read aloud to younger students and older students can easily read them on their own.  They are written in a personal style, making you feel as if the author is speaking to you personally.  To enhance the readings, having an atlas and/or globe handy is a good idea.

·        Field Notes – these are narration prompts and are just suggestions to get your child talking about what they have learned

·        Travel Logs – these are the Notebooking activities and are suggested to be placed in a 3-ring binder, in plastic sheet protectors.  For each country, your child will be encouraged to draw a map of the country (outline maps are included on the accompanying cd-rom) and label cities, landmarks, etc. that have been discussed in the chapter.  On the back of each map, they will be recording special things that stood out to them during the lessons.

·        Bring it Home – these are great ideas for bringing each country’s culture into your home; they include things such as music, art, reading, poetry, and recipes (some web addresses are given for further ideas, etc.)

·        Prayer Walk – these are included at the end of each section of study on a particular country; they are written as a prayer and include specific requests pertaining to that particular country.

Also included with A Child’s Geography, Volume 2 is a bonus CD-ROM that includes extra reproducible pages.  On these pages you will find more resources to help make Explore the Holy Land even more memorable.  These include copywork passages that directly relate to the studies, 4 different copywork templates, 4 travel log templates and a travel log cover sheet, maps of the Middle Eastern countries (both labeled and unlabeled versions), recipes from the Holy Land, and review tests (or quizzes) for each of the 16 chapters of the book.
