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
Grade 4-7-- Two more books in this series that continues to dazzle the eye with hundreds of color photographs and illustrations. Each two-page spread treats one particular aspect of the civilization, such as architecture, religion, agriculture, or recreational activities. All items pictured are identified with brief captions and clear definitions. Most are of excavated artifacts, but when these would not suffice to demonstrate visually some aspect of the culture, drawings or modern reconstructions are used. Striking examples include the reconstructioned Roman helmet, breastplate, and legionary's field pack. However, it's unfortunate that there are no timelines to help readers grasp the historical period. Similar books have been produced before, but seldom with the kind of stunning visuals provided here. Browsing through these books is second only to seeing the articles attractively displayed in a museum. --David N. Pauli, Missoula Public Library, MT

This was the basis for our family summer homeschool unit on Egypt. All ages can find interesting information inside. Well-written text, very descriptive captions, and wide-ranging information. And the images! Beautiful. Lead your children to a deeper understanding of the culture, beliefs, and technology of Ancient Egypt.
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.
