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

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

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

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.
