What's on Our Bookshelf - Ancient Egypt Version

As we venture through our year I thought I'd put up a booklist from time to time of what we're reading.  I'm hoping this will be especially helpful to those of you doing Story of the World 1 with older kids.  Most of these are books the kids are reading on their own during their free reading time.  I've included links but be sure to check you're local library first!

  1. Love your list! It is going to make me spend some $$$ though! Love lists like this. My DS6 is fascinated by Egypt. He just can't get enough. We watched a great movie on Netflix last Sunday. I am going to post the link on my blog soon, but I just haven't gotten around to it yet. If you belong to Netflix you can search it by typing in, "Egypt". It is the only one that is available on the "watch it now".
