Mummies, tombs, and pyramids, enter the world of Ancient Egypt! Explore the land of King Tut and Cleopatra with fun facts and amazing photos.
Despite crafts in each volume that are often truly lame, this series should draw both recently minted and older but reluctant readers. Except for Cleopatra, which is illustrated with 19th-century paintings, each book features large photos of, mostly, ancient art or artifacts paired with clear, simply-written texts in easily digestible blocks or insets. Gods introduces nine important deities, but also covers such related topics as sacred animals and ways of ancient worship, for instance, and Hieroglyphs not only provides charts of symbols for sounds and numbers but also descriptions of papyrus making, the Book of the Dead, and the Rosetta stone. Budding Egyptologists will find the print and Web resources at the end well chosen to expedite their studies.
