Reviews

Six chapters with colorful titles begin with facts about the topic under several subheadings. The step-by-step directions are well written, and easy to follow. School Library Journal Drawn in by such projects as mummified apples, hieroglyphs, colorful collar necklaces, and false beards made from toilet paper tubes, our tester families thought this book held nearly as much treasure as King Tuts tomb. Family Fun Magazine Will certainly intrigue readers and have them eagerly turning the pages to check out the next activity. The sidebars with information make excellent complements. Calliope Magazine Offers a variety of projects, accompanied by explanatory history text, designed to stimulate readers
