By LME on March 2, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Bess And The Sphinx is the semi-autobiographical account of the author's travels in Egypt as a young girl. The year is 1899 so her travel experiences are radically different from those of our era. After sailing on a great ocean liner and touring Western Europe, the story concentrates on Egypt through a little girl's eyes. Actually, the travel experiences of Bess and her family are worth the read, just by themselves. It is quite well-written, but in a gentler style. There are biblical references at times and a general Christian overtone.

Read-aloud for K-5 and independent read for grades 2-5. I could easily give this a 4.5* rating as it was a very good book.
