This book is amazing! My 11 yr old daughter and I loved the story. We are doing history yr 4 and I thought it fit right in. Our favorite part of the story is when we realized they were talking about Abraham and Sarah. I guess I never put the timeline together. What a great find!
My 11-year-old son is somewhat of a reluctant reader, so when he told me he really loved this book, I had to hop on here and write a review. The book is beautifully written and packed with historical information and great messages. I loved it to as an adult, and I’m happy to see my child loving great books!
Growing up in a loving family on a farm near Corinth, Greece, young Lykon only has to worry about whether or not his father will gift him a discus and how quickly he can learn to throw it well. Although mutterings of unrest, fear of the Roman soldiers, and a new religion based on one god, not many, filter through to Lykon’s ears, he is not worried. But when his father is arrested for attending secret meetings, Lykon is separated from his parents and sent to Rome, where he is sold as a slave.
The Sign of the Anchor is a beautiful story of a boy opening his mind and heart to this new savior, the Christus, and risking his life to get back to his family with the help of new friends who work to keep him safe in the spirit of Christianity.
This book is a suggested read-aloud for the History Year 4 course and is included in the optional History 4 Book Pack.
