Our Week Ahead ~ 1 April 2013

It's a short week, again, and as we have no intention to start scheduled history learning again until Weds, so for our family it's a very short week.

Read Aloud to family, poetry from Favourite Poems Illustrated  ~ Helen Ferris

Family Read Aloud:
Pillar of Fire ~ J.H. Ingraham
(The Pillar of Fire is part of Lamplighters Epic Collection)
Eloquently-written, an illustrative account of the Prince of Tyre during his visit to Egypt more than 3500 years ago. The author brings full color and inspiration to every page in this Biblical historical fiction set in the time of Moses): a suspense-filled drama.

The entire book can be viewed online here.   Dn & I have enjoyed one of Ingraham's other books -  Prince of the House of David - and had this title recommended to us from an associate of Dn's.
We need to start this book a little early in our study of Egypt as it is rather long.
