Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Beginning readers won't want to miss this book with its captivating pictures of the mummy and its clear writing. When a child begins to read, there is a wonderful window of opportunity. Experiences that happen in these tender times may help a child make a decision about whether he or she will become someone who is hooked on reading for life. For a child who appears to hate reading might nonfiction may be more appealing. Give this easy to read nonfiction book a try.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
It is fascinating and just a bit spooky to think about accidentally discovering the body of someone frozen to death more than 5,000 years ago. Young readers can look at the color photographs and read about the serendipitous discovery, the steps taken to preserve the ice mummy, and the intensive study of his clothing and other artifacts. One of the most startling images is the result of technology that allows artist John Gurche to recreate the face of the frozen man. While the text is easy to read, it does not talk down to young readers. They will learn and probably want to know more about the ice mummy and other such discoveries. Part of the "Step Into Reading" series, a level 3 book.
