Children can try their hand at re-creating ancient Israelite culture—along with the cultures of their neighbors, the Philistines and Phoenicians—in a way that will provide perspective on current events. The book covers a key period from the Israelites’ settlement in Canaan in 1200 B.C.E. to their return from exile in Babylonia in 538 B.C.E. This part of the Middle East—no larger than modern-day Michigan—was the birthplace of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. More than 35 projects include stomping grapes into juice, building a model Phoenician trading ship, making a Philistine headdress, and writing on a broken clay pot. Israelites', Phoenicians', and Philistines' writing and languages, the way they built their homes, the food they ate, the clothes they wore, and the work they did, and of course, their many interesting stories, are all explored.

About the Author:

Marian Broida is the author of Ancient Egyptians and Their Neighbors.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-Broida's overview of the Israelites, Phoenicians, and Philistines focuses on their history, food, clothing, written language, occupations, religious beliefs, and architecture. The stories of the Bible (Old Testament) are related throughout and students may have a hard time differentiating between what archaeologists have interpreted and what has been taken solely from biblical texts. When describing what we "know" about Philistine military dress, the author notes that while we do not know exactly what the giant Goliath wore, "all we really know is that his clothes must have been extra-extra large!" This conversational tone does make for livelier reading, but it is often pointless. Interestingly enough, there is no citation for the Bible in the bibliography. Included are several activities and recipes for each group. The projects are fairly simple, using common materials, and the illustrations will help children interpret the narrative directions. A number of black-and-white photographs and simple maps are included. Admittedly there is little for children about these ancient cultures, but Jonathan N. Tubb's Bible Lands (DK, 2000) is a better introduction. Students could then use Broida's book to further their knowledge on these peoples.
