Yep…today is my birthday! A woman never reveals her age, so let’s just say I’m holding firm at 29!!! Today has been a typical Monday for sure! I think we should outlaw birthday’s on Mondays. It’s been a rough one for sure! But I am so thankful to be a Mommy to these four wonderful blessings. They really do fill my life with such JOY!!!
But, since today is my birthday I thought…”What better way to celebrate than to have a GIVEAWAY?!” So…what do ya say?! Let’s have a giveaway!!!
I’ve been holding on to this one for a while and I’m so excited to finally share it with all of you!!!! Mister Bull and I are getting ready to dig into this gem of a book (so look for a review later). But until then, I have read through everything in here and it looks simply amazing!!
Description from the site: 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.
Doesn’t that sound like an amazing book?! Who wouldn’t want to learn Geography (and some History) on a magic carpet ride?!
Thanks for helping me celebrate today and Happy Monday!!!!
