Eyewitness Books' Ancient Egypt continues the tradition of excellent, accurate, and beautiful reference works for kids 9 to 12 years old. Ancient Egyptian civilization holds a special fascination for many, with its mummies, pyramids, and highly stylized artworks. Kids can explore a Pharaoh's tomb, see a mummy up close, and find out about Egyptian gods. Lots of archaeological relics show what life was like for the ancient Egyptians, from how they dressed to the games they played. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-A dazzling look at Egyptian artifacts and architecture. Hundreds of excellent-quality, captioned, full-color photographs and reproductions demonstrate various aspects of culture and life. Two-page spreads focus on different facets of this ancient civilization, and transparent cutaways are used to view Tutankhamen's mummy, the interior of his tomb, the temple at Abu Simbel, and the hold of a cargo boat on the Nile. This spectacular presentation is easy to read and a delight to browse through. However, it is not substantial enough for reports, and lacks a time line or a cohesive historical overview. It's similar in concept and format to the "Eyewitness" series (DK), but even glitzier. --Cynthia M. Sturgis, Ledding Library, Milwaukie, OR

Fabulous pictures, great information in such a succinct book, and the kids love them.
I will purchase this book as a gift for anyone (any age) interested in starting research in Ancient Egypt.
Also other titles in this series are just as outstanding.
