We gave this book to our seven year old daughter for her birthday. She was so excited to receive it she perused half the book before remembering she had other gifts to open! She and her best friend are fascinated by mummies, and this was the perfect gift to entertain and educate. We will definitely be buying her more books from the eyewitness series of books. Our daughter loves how the book is filled with pictures. Because of this book we took her to a local archeological museum where she was able to see some mummies up close and personal. As a parent, what I appreciate about the book is how it draws my daughter in and fuels her passion all the while educating her. I would definitely recommend this book!
