I have no idea why I'm the first person to review this wonderful book. I am using this with my homeschooled first grader right now. We are doing ancient history this year and right now we are doing a short unit on ancient writing. We studied cunieform writing, Egyptian hieroglyphs and the Rosetta Stone. My daughter got a real kick out of learning the Egyptian alphabet and writing her name on a cartouche. The book includes stencils of the alphabet which comes in handy. It also contains a lot of fun activities to practice hieroglyphic writing. This book could probably be used by students from first through sixth grade.

I bought this book for my homeschooled 7-year-old as we were doing an Egypt unit study.

He began using the stencils as soon as we received the book in the mail. I gave him some brief explanations (included in the book) and soon he was making cartuches with the names of family and friends.

We really enjoyed this hands-on product! I would definetly recommend this for children interested in Egypt.

We are using this as part of our homeschooling study on Egypt. It came in and she immediately took the stencil and started to write about everything she could think of. There are several pages around here.

The one drawback is that it's really meant for kids. It's not really comprehensive and only covers some of the symbols. But really, for playing around, it's lots of fun and you will learn something.

I bought this book for my grandson's 6th birthday since he's been intent on things Egyptian and wound up having to get a second one for my 3½-year-old granddaughter as she too really liked the template for creating hierogliphs. Even though she can't yet read many words, she has spent many sessions intensely creating blocks of glyphs just because she likes the characters. My grandson particularly enjoyed the idea that you could write in multiple directions and I think he's actually gotten more details from the book, so an age of 5-6 seems best for maximum benefit.

Not sure what happened to the stickers that are included - I think those never made much impact.

A related product, Ancient Egypt and Nubia (Ancient and Living Cultures : Stencils) by Bartok, Ronan and Sommerville was also a hit, although many of the stencils are more elaborate and fragile and even the 6-year-old needed some help to ensure they weren't ripped while removing the inserts.

This book is very well organized, and very simple for a child to comprehend. The author did an excellent job keeping the design of the book easy to interpret.
