Children's LiteratureAGERANGE: Ages 7 up.
The cover of this gift item boasts "Learn to write in secret hieroglyphs!" and the interior page of the folder delivers on this promise by introducing, depicting, and presenting a hieroglyphic alphabet. This is not a true book. The folder contains information about hieroglyphs, including historical and grammatical concepts. The interior folder contains sixteen half sheets of off-white ‘Egyptian' stationary and envelopes, two sheets of Egyptian themed stickers, and six postcards depicting Egyptian sights. Readers are encouraged to create their own cartouche, an oval shape framing the hieroglyphs that make up a name, and to use it to ‘authenticate' their correspondence. This is not an appropriate purchase for a library collection, but may make time fly on a rainy day or while traveling. Reviewer: L. F. Wade
