Quick Expert: Ancient Egypt

“...fine pick for grades 1-2, offering some 24 pages of basic introductory facts...a top pick for libraries seeking titles with lasting, repeat lending value.” —The Midwest Book Review, 04/11 “In her massively photo-illustrated nonfiction works, Visit Egypt! and Quick Expert: Ancient Egypt, author Jill Laidlaw presents readers with an age appropriate context for the famous history and treasures of ancient Egypt. The text in each book is presented as a well-organized history of ancient Egypt....A glossary, index and list of books and web sites to check for further information are included at the end of the books...The information text in these books is mostly presented as short capsules and as captions for photographs. Interesting facts are printed in separate boxes on the page with the title "Did you know?"...These books will attract the interest of 6 to 10-year-olds with the many photographs and short, separated chunks of text. The reading level of these texts would fall into the grade 3 to 4 range. Highly Recommended.” —CM Magazine, 04/11
