A children's book I remember owning and reading as a kid. Part of the "Meet the" series and I had a few of them.

I loved this book as a kid. I read it a lot. I have no idea if this would even be a politically correct book nowadays - probably not - but I don't have my copy anymore to verify that. Good memories of it, though.

After ancient Egypt was destroyed, the hieroglyphics were lost and destroyed as well. The book then talks about how people are finding the hieroglyphics and putting them together to see what they were saying back then. The setting is important because in today's world there are no hieroglyphics.

For homeschool study - this is our second pass through Ancient Egypt. Our history is read-aloud. Both my 12 and 15 year olds enjoyed this story, where you are provided a more in-depth journey along the timeline of the god- kings. Although this is listed as grade 6 and up, it might be more engaging to the older student - certainly as a read-aloud. It is also a great resource for any adult wishing to learn more about the Pharoahs and their stories. Mrs. Payne details the foreign invasions and the Pharaohs who were not of Egyptian origin. Interesting story about King Tut and his name change as well ! Interesting too was the belief that the resurrection of their god-king aka Pharaoh was their key to everlasting life!

Positives - maps are well done
Negative - a timeline would have been helpful.

We have watched the BBC Egypt (Ferdinand Felix - Director) series for fun - it's also a good supplement.

Another excellent recommendation by Carole Joy Seid. Landmark books tend to be keepers!
