Book List for Ancient World History (Part 1)

Ancient World History Book List – Part 1
(Ancient Civilizations and the Old Testament)

I can’t think of a better way to bring history alive and make it meaningful & memorable, than with great books !   Curled up reading about the adventures of a child living in the shadow of the ancient pyramids or cooking up an ancient recipe for an afternoon snack for “History Class” has to be one of the best parts of homeschooling !

If you’ve been following along with my Free Ancient World History Curriculum  posts, you may like to check out these book lists for each section.  These books are NOT required for these studies… they’re just my favorite resources (most I’ve personally used).  You will find the few required books for the curriculum included on each plan (start HERE).
I hope I will have saved you some time too, listing them all in one place.  🙂
