This is our favorite read aloud so far! My 10 year old girl, 13 year old boy both loved this, as did I.
This story really brought to life what it would have been like to grow up in Egypt, as a wealthy child or a slave. Sweet, unlikely friendship, childhood adventures, and a mystery rounded this story out as one we will remember.
We read this book for history this year. Our 8 year old enjoyed it very much. Thanks so much for writing books with good content that I don’t have to worry about.
We read Boy of the Pyramids as a family to go along with our study of ancient Egypt. My children absolutely loved the story and were able to also learn about the culture of Egypt at that time.
My 6th grade son, age 11, loved Boy of the Pyramids. We are studying History 1 this year. This book brings to life the fascinating stories and curriculum we are learning with History. My son wrote a wonderful “book review” for his final report. This book is one of the highlights we’ve experienced with The Good and the Beautiful curriculum. We’re so thankful for genuine and quality filled literature found here. I have to say – my son reads well, but sometimes begrudgingly. 🙂 However, he truly enjoyed this read.
This was such a great read. Kept my girls engaged and gave them an idea what life was like in Ancient Egypt.
Boy of the Pyramids is the heartwarming story of the unlikely friendship that forms between an Egyptian nobleman’s son, Kaffe, and Sari, a slave girl from the Sinai region. Together, they come to understand each other’s cultures, learn the traditions and farming methods of the people who live along the Nile, uncover foul play during a bullfight, and themselves in danger while seeking adventure, understand Egyptian beliefs about the afterlife, and ultimately solve the mystery that is woven throughout the tale. This is an engaging story of family love, compassion, sacrifice, bravery, loyalty, and adventure!
This book is a suggested read-aloud for the History Year 1 course and is included in the optional History 1 Book Pack.
