Format: Kindle Edition
This book is a very interesting story.I would recommend it for 3rd grade and above.The only thing I did not like about it was it did not have a lot of information on king tut.It mostly just had info on Egypt.Other than that I think it was a wonderful book with great vocabulary. The author really described things very well and made me feel like I was there.I loved the pictures with great detail . If you were doing a history report on king Tut or Egypt this book would come in handy.Thank you for reading my review and I hope you decide to read this book.

The Tut exhibit is in town this summer and I wanted to be able to provide some information to my seven year old before we went. This book was absolutely the right amount of information for the 7-10 year old age group. We enjoyed it so much that we have purchased additional books in the series and are racing through those as well. I highly recommend the series as a great introduction to biographies!

My daughter loved this book. It's informative and relatable to keep a kid interested. She was shocked at some of the facts about King Tut.

" He was only 9 when he got married, how is that possible?"

" They poke a needle up his nose and remove the brain..eww!"

What truly made her happy is that in 6th grade, shortly after finishing this book they went over the same subject in history class. She was all smiles when she realized she knew this stuff. Every day she came home telling me what they talked about- that she already knew.

It would be ideal to have a child read this book before digging into the textbooks.

On a similar note, she also read the one about Anne Frank. With similar results. These books make it easier to grasp the history of a person and the time period in an easy to read format.

Who Was King Tut is a great book. But it doesn't tell you very much about King Tut. It tells you information on ancient Egypt. But I Learned more things about King Tut then I did before.

This is a great overview of ancient Egyptian life and Egyptian archeological history. The book uses the discovery of King Tut's tomb by Howard Carter to discuss these wider issues. Not enough is known about Tutankhamun to really write a full biography book for children about his life. Thus, I'd say only about a third of the book actually talks about him while he was alive. The rest discusses his father Amenhotep, everyday ancient Egyptian life, Egyptian religion, Howard Carter, the Rosetta Stone and Hieroglyphics, papyrus, and the genesis of the modern King Tut's curse myth.

My 8 year old daughter is reading through this now for Ancient Egypt study. This whole series is a wonderful resource for advanced second graders through fifth graders. The official reading level for this book is 3.4.They are cheap to buy and pack in loads of information in a conversational style of text that children will enjoy. Elementary school libraries usually carry many of these books now. The more of these Grosset & Dunlap produce the better!

This book was not boring and it had a lot of pictures to explain what was being talked about. I had to read a biography for 4th grade assignment.

I liked this book very much. The only thing I didn't like about this book was that it had more information about Egypt than King Tut.
