I bought this book for my son who is currently obsessed about all things Egypt. I was looking for some activities to further develop his understanding of the culture. This book fit the bill and then some. It is full of great, easy to do, inexpensive ideas that really hit on aspects of the ancient culture. It also has a lot of interesting cultural information that is very reachable for my child to read and understand. An excellent resource, in my opinion.
