Asia: It's People and History (Giveaway and review)

 
About the Book:
Our family just happens to know quite a bit about Asian countries and cultures because both of my children are Asian.  They were adopted from South Korea so we attend the Asian festival in Tulsa every year.  We also have many friends from several different Asian countries.  Although we know a lot it was still fun to learn more.  We had fun exploring Vietnam but Laos, Bangladesh, Nepal, China, and Iran are all countries that are included in this unit study.

Each country study starts off with a story and then some discussion questions. Next, is the Let's Talk about...(whatever country you are studying).  This goes over the history of the country, what life is like for Christians, and then a fun activity like a puzzle or mapping.

Each unit is pretty short but packed with a lot of information.  Since my children are in 6th and 8th grades we went to the library and found several books that went along with each unit so we could extend the study.

 

About the author:
 
The author is Bonnie Rose Husdon, she writes for The Old Schoolhouse Magazine® and SchoolHouseTeachers.com as a curriculum creator and editorial assistant. Her heart’s desire is for every child to feel the love of God and know how special they are to Him. She would love for you to stop by and meet the star of her children’s series at Exploring with Jake (http://writebonnierose.wordpress.com/), look through the 10/40 window of the world and join others in prayer at Looking Out the 10/40 Window (http://lookingoutthe1040window.wordpress.com/).


What is the 10/40 window?

The 10/40 Window is a geographical area of the world roughly between 10 degrees north and 40 degrees north latitude. The significance of this area is that it is home to over 4.5 billion people, over 8,000 different people groups, and some of the largest groups of unreached people in the entire world. More than 80% of the world’s poorest people live in the 10/40 window. It is an area that many people are taking intentional steps to pray for and reach out to the people who live there. You can read an excellent description of the significance of the 10/40 Window on JoshuaProject.net (HYPERLINK to this page, please: http://www.joshuaproject.net/10-40-window.php)
