Ancient Egypt Synopsis

Powerful pharaohs, deadly curses, beautiful queens, legendary cities, tombs filled with gold ... you'll know it all by the time you finish this smart and wacky book!

Did you know that ancient Egyptians formed the world's first police force? The 365-day calendar? We have ancient Egypt to thank for that, too! And the next time your parents tell you to brush your teeth, you can tell them that ancient Egyptians invented the first toothbrush and toothpaste. In this cool book, you'll find out what life was like 3,000 years ago along the banks of the Nile River, explore the lives of famous pharaohs determined to leave their mark no matter the cost, and get the low-down on famous battles for power. Discover weird facts about famous people-from Cleopatra to King Tut-and about famous places, from Alexandria to Thebes. It's a must-have for all budding Egyptologists, archaeologists, or kids who want to be in-the-know about this fascinating civilisation!

Ancient Egypt Press Reviews

My son loves these books. We started reading National Geographic Kids books when he was about six (he's nine now) and I can honestly say that these books have been instrumental in teaching him to read.
