Recently I began reading through the Old Testament with my children. We had just finished reading about the Israelites in Egypt when we began the book, A Cry from Egypt. We absolutely LOVED it! My kids did not want me to stop reading.
The book drew us into the lives of an Israelite family during the time of slavery in Egypt. It helped us to better understand what life may have been like for the Israelites. When we read the story in the Bible, it seems that we focus so much on what Moses and Aaron are doing with Pharaoh and the Egyptians, but I had never really thought about what the Israelites must have gone through.
I can’t wait for her next book in the series!
