It includes explanations of how the Egyptian Empire was shaped by climate and geography and also by its religious belief system. It was a curious blend of mysticism and materialism. They believed in an afterlife and spent much of their time preparing for it, but much of that preparation took the form of insuring that all of their "stuff" went with them. Obviously the expression "you can't take it with you" did NOT originate in Ancient Egypt.
And what brought down this mighty and very successful empire? Too many wars and the discovery (by their neighbors the Hittites) of that useful substance called iron. The Ancient Egyptians are remembered and admired for their advances in mathematics, medicine, agriculture, and astronomy, but the wily Hittites harnessed the power of metal. Never underestimate technology.
I'm enjoying this series. It's one I would be happy to see a kid reading. It's a shame it's not better edited. Typos, mis-spellings, and similar errors distract from the enjoyment of reading them and are not setting a good example for children.
Aside from the complaints, this book is great. Offers insight into culture that we may not have had access to otherwise. While not intended for homeschooling, we did use it as a supplement.
And, ps... nobody even noticed or commented on the cover art.
