Overview

Ancient Egypt lives again in simple, but powerful verse that tells the story of a mysterious, magical civilization from the legends of its gods, through the triumphs of its Pharaohs, to its fading into history. Here, in clear, compelling form, is a taste of all that has made the Gift of the Nile great -- the death and rebirth of Osiris, the epic struggle of Seth and Horus, the raising of the pyramids, the glory and heartbreak of the female king Hatshepsut, the strange life of the king who rebelled against the gods, and much, much more. Amid the tales of gods and of Pharaohs are pictures of the lives of priests and farmers, and a journey through the world of the dead. Simple enough for a child making one's first acquaintance with Ancient Egypt, this work has something to offer even one who has studied Ancient Egypt for a lifetime. Relive the wonder that was Ancient Egypt!

It has great facts but is kind of boring. I think this book is okay but the facts are kind of random. If you are doing a report i would definetly get this book.

This was extremely short, especially for a poem about the epic creation of everything. I read it, enjoyed it and thought about if for a long time. Even now phrases will come to mind as I follow the new discoveries of archeology, astronomy and other dull science stuff. I will read it again. And compare what was written there from the time of the ancient Egyptians against what we think we know today.
