We're 2 for 2 now!

This year on our second round of Ancients I'm combining history and literature books for DS and I have to share that our first two choices were hits. "Hittite Warrior" by Joanne Williamson (historical fiction, very well written) and "Gilgamesh the Hero" retold by Geraldine McCaughrean. We just finished Gilgamesh. DS loved it. And I must say that book lent itself very well to a "book talk". I admit to doing a terrible job with "book talks", but the crises and character development and all that in Gilgamesh's life were pretty spelled out, so we were able to have a half-ways decent literary discussion.


If you're looking for good books for the Ancients, I'd highly recommend those. Now, on to "The Golden Goblet" and the Egyptians.
