The Lovereading4Kids comment
Take a â€˜Fly on the Wallâ€™ look at the Egyptians as portrayed in cartoon-style illustrations which makes them seem surprisingly recent despite the loin-cloth and towel style of dress. Thereâ€™s an introduction to their hieroglyphs, what happened at the Temple, the gods they worshipped, how a mummy is made and more. Itâ€™s all pitched at an easy to read or easy to understand level but substantiated by accurate facts. Useful as a first introduction to a staple of the curriculum.
