I bought this for my classroom (6th grade ancient history), but I literally had to smuggle it out of my house under the dark of night (ok, 6am darkness) so my own kids (aged 4 and 6) wouldn't know it was gone. They LOVE this book. We used to spend nights reading Fancy Nancy and Skippyjon Jones, but now they repeatedly request the "Egypt book" - and so we look at the amazing color photos, the incredible artist renderings, and the interesting collage-style facts that this book is filled with. Even the gruesome photos of the mummies (and there are several!) aren't too disgusting for my kids, and they are nicely arranged by brightly colored images of death masks and what the Pharaohs may have dressed like in life so they aren't too overpowering. There are so many interesting facts in this book that even I learned a lot - and I teach an entire unit on Ancient Egyptian history! Yes, this is a fabulous book, and I can't wait to get the Castle book in the same series. Will this book work as a single source for an Egyptian history project - no, probably not, but it's format makes it kid friendly and easy to read a few pages, glean some cool information, and hit the sack without feeling like you've filled your head with too much fluff. (The one downside was that it started falling apart WAY too quickly - the binding just wasn't put together very well - but I imagine this is probably a solitary issue and not something that happens across the board with all of these books. It would have been nicer in hardcover, but I'm a hardcover book snob!)

brilliant colors, interesting factoids and can be read on a surface level for younger kids (mine is 3) or more in depth for kids who are a lil older and have more patience. Very informative and told in a fun way. Images are very well done, quality print. We bought it for my son's 4th bday party - he chose an Egyptian theme.

I loved the wealth of information contained in this publication. I didn't know half of what it contained and I consider myself somewhat of an Egypt textbook. The information this contained was also very helpful in assisting my younger brother complete a project on Egypt for his history class. I absolutely LOVE IT!

My 4th grade daughter claims that with this series and this book in particular, car rides will no longer be boring. It is clearly captivating as well as giving her some information about Egypt.

My 3 1/2 year old is Egyptology obsessed and this book only made it better. He loves it. We read it about 278 times a day. He loves mummies and can now tell you how mummies are made, about hieroglyphics and how they stored mummies organs and valuables. The first book did fall apart, the glue binding it together gave way separating the cover from the insides but Amazon quickly sent a new one for n two days and I returned the damaged item.

My daughter loves Egypt & learning about ancient thing so I knew she would love this book! We got it for her for Christmas & of course she loves it! It's very educational & teaches a lot! Today she brought it to school for sharing to show others about the Nile River. It's a great book at a great price! I was a bit disappointed however in that the binding of the book broke off & I had to glue it back on but for the book & her joy, it was worth it!
