The Lovereading4Kids comment

A terrific book for 4+ year olds that will teach them how to read and write hieroglyphs. You’ll find 48 pages of colour pages of rhymes that match letters of the alphabet to Egyptian symbols: A is for Archer, Z is for Zoo! There’s also some special text on each page for slightly older children to actually learn the hieroglyphic alphabet as well as providing information about the Ancient Egyptian culture as well. A stencil is also included for kids to write their own secret messages to each other. Great fun…

Synopsis

Hieroglyphs from A to Z A Rhyming Book with Ancient Egyptian Stencils for Kids by Peter Der Manuelian

Hieroglyphs from A to Z is the first book published by PomegranateKids®, an imprint of Pomegranate Communications, in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. With bold graphics, charming, rhyming text, and solid educational content, it explains the hieroglyphic code while imparting important facts about ancient Egypt. As an added bonus, a separate sheet of stencils is provided, slipped inside the back cover, so that kids can easily draw their own hieroglyphs. All told, this is the perfect book for any small visitor to a museum with Egyptian artifacts, or for any child who simply loves words and pictures.

About the Author

Peter Der Manuelian

Peter Der Manuelian became interested in ancient Egypt not long after learning his own ABCs. He received a B.A. in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations from Harvard University and a Ph.D. in Egyptology from the University of Chicago. After working at the pyramids of Giza and the temples of Thebes in Egypt, he joined the curatorial staff of the Department of Egyptian and Ancient Near Eastern Art of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. He is interested in using the tools of the future to study the past, and combined his hand-drawn hieroglyphic artwork with a computer to produce this book.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
