This exciting book was fundamental to week 3 of our homeschool unit on ancient Egypt -- when we studied scribes, papyrus making, and hieroglyphs. The kids got toally carried away, writing each other coded notes and having a blast. We made homemade papyrus and used the stencil inside to write our translated Bible verses in beautiful hieroglyphs. This book is dynamite.
I don't agree that it's really for "5 year olds", though. If there had been better directions in this book I would have easily given it 5 stars. However, they get away with not having to really give too many directions by saying "there is no right way." That's fine, but it's a little confusing. The stencil is a nice addition and mostly why I bought it. I have had a little experience with hieroglyphics over the years so perhaps I was expecting too much from this. My oldest kid had absolutely no interest in it right NOW but if they get into this subject later in school then they will probably love this book as an addition to my other hieroglyphics books. For the price, it's not too bad, though.
This book made the Hieroglyphs come to life, and she immediately wanted to write things using the template.
We eventually used it to write her name on the Science Fair display she did on mummification.
