Format: Paperback
I bought this book for my 2nd grader who is studying ancient world history. It really helped her feel more connected - seeing Cleopatra as a "real" person just like herself. Definately a more "personal" supplement to standard history studies.

Format: Paperback
The title says "based on a true story of Cleopatra" and I am so curious to find out how true this tale may be. In Cleopatra and the Kings Enemies a young Cleopatra puts her knowledge of languages to good use when she overhears a couple of Egyptian men plotting against her father the king.

This is a wonderful book to get students excited about learning Egyptian History and for kids who are not ready to leave the comfort of picture books for larger chapter books.
