This is a great book. It has interactive pieces inside. For example, there are letters from the archeologists that were studying the Egyptians at the time. My son (nine years) thinks this book is fabulous. He is constantly finding new facts to share with me. I would recommend this book to anyone that has a child interested or that you want to become interested in Egyptian culture.
This book is so much fun! While it is very informative, it is also interactive. Just about every page has something you can "touch", open, lift, or move. It reminds me of pop-up books from my childhood. The book itself is very large and contains a lot of information. It would be a great prop for a child's book report on egypt. Just super!
