Format: Hardcover
I purchased "See-Through Mummies" for my grandson, aged 8, hoping to stimulate an interest in Egyptology. The book is very readable and has many beautiful and colourful illustrations. The scene is set with the telling of the Osiris story, leading to a very interesting and accurate account of the process of mummification and subsequent burial. The religious beliefs of this fascinating people are also featured - as well as many little insights which bring this ancient culture to life. This may be a book for children but I think all ages will appreciate its story and its sheer beauty.

I looked at a number of books on mummy-making before settling on this one, and I made a very good choice! The pages are VERY colorful, the see-though sections neat, and the text clear, informative, and interesting.

I highly recommend it.

Bought the book for my mummy unit in Read180 and the kids love it. Great illustrations and it's nice to show the kids this type of cross-section view when we're discussing the mummies!
