Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jody Little
This book is part of the "You Choose" series from Capstone Press. Readers learn about three periods in Ancient Egypt: the age of the pyramid builders, the mummy makers, and Queen Cleopatra's reign. By choosing the path that interests them, readers learn about the lives of people who actually lived in Ancient Egypt. They learn how the stones for the pyramids were chiseled and transported, or how the mummy tombs were painted and the bodies embalmed, or how Cleopatra and Mark Antony fought the Romans and ultimately killed themselves. The second-person view point allows the reader to feel like he or she is in the story. Sometimes the choices made lead to a happy life and other times they lead to death. Reading more than one adventure in a sitting may be confusing to some children. Teachers may enjoy using this book as a read-aloud, or assigning different adventures to groups of students. The book includes numerous colored illustrations and photographs as well as a time line of Ancient Egypt, Internet sites, glossary and index. Reviewer: Jody Little
