From School Library Journal
Grade 5-8-This book presents factual material, then re-creates scenes in the lives of Egyptian people, explaining how they prepared their toiletries, what they ate, how they worshipped, and how their lives differed depending on their positions in society. Most of the information is not new and other sources, such as George Hart's Ancient Egypt (Time-Life, 1995), are better illustrated. However, students may find this small volume helpful as it is filled with the kinds of facts needed for reports. Readers witness a sumptuous dinner feast, they learn what it's like to sail on the Nile, and the steps necessary to mummify a cadaver. There is also information on the Rosetta Stone, the Sphinx, King Tut, and Cleopatra. Frequent black-and-white and color maps and reproductions illustrate the text. Best for libraries that need supplemental material to meet research demands.
