This book was super cute. Siblings Peter and Mary travel in time for the third time. This time they go to Egypt at the time of the Exodus. They are given a certain amount of time to figure out the meaning of the scroll and return home, otherwise they'll be stuck forever. It reminded me of several of the Imagination Station books in the Adventures of Odyssey series.

It's targeted at 6-9 year olds, and my best friend's 7 year read it and loved it.

I received a copy of this book for free from the p

Although this is becoming a very easy read for our ten-year-old he seemed to enjoy the book, and of course he is a dog lover so that added.
This is the third book in this series that he has read and enjoyed, and helps reinforce what he has been taught.
With this book, we are putting a child’s look at the plagues of Egypt and how the Jews were finally led out.
I love that I am able to have books that he enjoys, and that he is eager to read.

This book moves us much more strongly into the known world which both makes it exciting, but also sets the standard higher. As always, Thomas keeps the tone perfect pitch for his early reader audience, throwing in plenty of cliffhangers to keep them turning to the next page. By the end of the story your child will have a real sense of what it would have been like to live through the Ten Plagues.
As a story, it’s worth having as part of the Secret of the Hidden Scrolls series but doesn’t stand as

This is the third book in this series and they just keep getting better. Peter, Mary and their dog Hank travel through time to learn about what happened during biblical times. This one they learn about Moses. They meet new friends and learn valuable lessons. I believe young children ages 6-9 would really enjoy these stories. I received a copy of this book frost m Worthykids for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

This book is targeted to 6-9 year olds. This is a perfect age group for it. My 6 year old loved this book. This is the 3rd book in the series. We have not read the first two books in the series, and we had no problem following along. I loved the characters, my 6 year old loved the storyline. He was very excited to keep reading.

I received a copy of this book through Worthy Publishing, all thoughts are my own.

The author definitely took some liberty with the storyline of Moses and the 10 Plagues here, but the girls really loved the Egyptian elements and culture descriptions which helped the events become real. The description of the blood of the lamb covering the Israelites was beautiful.

Excellent biblical fiction for children! My son couldn't put it down!
