Product Description:

Twelve-year-old Tirzah and her family are slaves in Egypt. Under the tyranny of Pharaoh, they must make mud bricks without straw, so Tirzah cuts grass for her father and brother. Seeing this makes the Egyptian guards angry, and they crack their whips to make the people work harder. "If only my people could escape," Tirzah thinks to herself. If only Moses could persuade Pharaoh to let them go. Their only hope is that Yahweh, the Lord God, will hear their prayers and rescue them from the cruelty of Egypt. Paperback, 160 pages. ~ Rachel P.

Category Description for Veritas History Programs:

Instead of isolating Bible and Christian history from what was happening in the rest of the world, the folks at Veritas aim to incorporate it. They offer four different history time periods (each aimed at a different grade level and designed to take one school year) which take students from creation to the present. The program originally had three parts: teacher's manual, history cards (an absolutely essential element of the curriculum) and a memory song on audio CD. The song is sung by a woman with a pleasant voice at varying tempos and is designed as a type of auditory time line. The history cards are fantastic! They have many interesting facets (the more you study them, the more you learn). The cards from the various time periods are color coded and numbered - there are 32 cards in each pack. If the cards also relate to Bible history they have another color and another number. Each card has a picture (usually in full color) representing what it is about. For example, the card for Creation has a reproduction of the Creation of the sun and moon from the Sistine Chapel Ceiling by Michelangelo. Many of the other pictures on the other cards are famous paintings as well. Each card has a

Meh
My daughter disliked this book so much, she just read the list of questions she had to answer, and then skimmed the text for the answers.

Great Story-
I bought this as a family read aloud and felt like I learned so much! The story of the Exodus is so familiar to many of us. It was wonderful to see if through the eyes of a child.
