From School Library Journal

Grade 1–5—Six chapters with colorful titles ("Beer, Bread, & Bartering" and "King Tut & Other Cool Kings") begin with facts about the topic under several subheadings. Short lists of "Words 2 Know," "Then & Now" comparisons, sidebars, and jokes appear throughout the sections. A few activities follow. For the most part, the step-by-step directions are well written and easy to follow, and they are accompanied by a helpful drawing or two. The information is basic and will not give new insights into ancient Egypt, but the facts are accurate and some of the activities are creative. The book is illustrated with humorous (but not realistic) black-and-white cartoon art. Though not an essential title, it will be of interest to children and their teachers as well as homeschooling families.—Clare A. Dombrowski, Amesbury Public Library, MA

Review

"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 Tut’s 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
