We're Sailing Down the Nile by Laurie Krebs


We're Sailing Down the Nile by Laurie Krebs

There is so much in store on this incredible journey: enormous statues and temples, the legendary Sphinx, tombs and mummies, and of course the Great Pyramids. With hieroglyphs on each page, a god or goddess associated with every destination, and informative notes at the end, you will be an Egypt expert in no time! This book has been selected by DCSF for 2008 'Book Ahead' scheme.


The rhyming storyline is simple, but coupled with a god or goddess on every page plus lots of added information at the back, it will cleverly appeal to a wide age range. The Bookseller*

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
