About the Book
This book is designed to introduce children K through 12th grade to their ancient African history. The Africans in Kmt (Egypt) saw the sun as a manifestation of the living God. Atum is recognized as the first creator. However, after Atum the visibility of the sun rose in prominence. Their early perception was that the sun resurrects each morning at dawn. During the day the sun appears to traverse the sky and at dusk it disappears into the underworld. Khepera is anthropomorphize as the scarab beetle. The midday sun at its peak signifies RA. In the evening as the sun goes down into the underworld it is referred to as Amen – the hidden one.
