We love this series, and Pyramid Builder was as fun and fascinating as the others we've read! There is lots of great info about ancient Egyptian society and daily life, as well as info about pyramids. The "icky" facts (mummification, accidents, disease, etc.) are served up with enough cartoonish humor to allow little kids to enjoy these books without being frightened. And it's a great introduction to an ancient Egypt unit study for older kids. This is one of our favorites in the series.

I used this book with my 6th graders. Part of their task was to compare and contrast the information they found in this book to information that they found in other sources.

This book along with several others in the series were on a recommended book list for my 2nd grader, we homeschool. I wasn't sure but I finally ordered this one and I'm so glade I did! It is a wonderful book with fantastic information that held my 7 year old boy's attention for the whole book! The pictures and writing are just the thing to get him interested and asking questions. I'll be ordering the other books in the series.

Format: Paperback
This book is a part of the You Wouldn't Want to Be series of children’s books, created by Salariya Book Company. Like all of the books in this series, this one has lots of brightly colored illustration and gobs of great, off-beat humor. The book puts you in the position of a young man living in Ancient Egypt in 1500 B.C. The pyramids are wonders to behold, but a terror to build!

This is a fun and funny book, one that is very informative on the pyramids of Ancient Egypt. It’s informative on the subject, and yet is a real joy to read. So, if you have an older child or young adult who wants to read a definitely not-dry book on the pyramids of Ancient Egypt, then steer him or her to You Wouldn't Want to Be a Pyramid Builder!...they’ll thank you later!

This is a great book for students to learn about what it means to be a slave in Ancient Egypt. My brothers and my third graders are enthralled with the information that they learn in these pages. It is a fun book that makes the reader a part of the learning by making him/her part of the story. The pictures are very discriptive. From this book they want to learn more about the Egyptians.
