Life in Ancient Egypt

China, Egypt, Mesoamerica "Each text provdes background on the history, geography, rulers, people, life, arts, culture, and eventual fate of each civilization....The pages are full of colorful photographs, illustrations, time lines, artwork, and diagrams complete with well-written captions. The texts offer more information than textbooks...the visual artifacts from each civilization are sure to interest students." —School Libary Journal, 07/05 Egypt "Photographs of artifacts dominate the pages and are supplemented, occasionally, with watercolor drawings. Readers will recognize many of the objects since they are also depicted in other historical books. In order to make it easier for younger students, the book has short sentences and contains a glossary to help with some of the more technical terms. For the classroom or individual reading, this is a useful introduction to the long and complex Egyptian saga." —School Arts magazine, 05/06
