5.0 out of 5 starsGreat Book!!!!!7 Jun 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book is great! I got this book when I was 4 3/4 and I am now 13 1/2 years old and it's still wonderful!!! It shows wonderful examples of hieroglyphs and demotic writing!!! It shows you detailed pictures of an Egyptian market, scribes house, and tells you how mummys were made!!! After reading I ( to my mom's extreme annoyance) turned our basement in to an Egyptian town, and you can imangine what I went as that Halloween!!

This new adventure with the loving teacher Ms. Frizzle will enchant kids of all ages. Splendidly illustrated with accurate details, this book is a delight to read: funny, informative, colorful, clear and comprehensive. An excellent, highly recommended book for children ages 8 to 12.

2.0 out of 5 starsI expected more.12 Sep 2011
By LBart - Published on Amazon.com
This book really disappointed my child and myself. I am not sure what age of the intended audience for this book was but the sentences were on the advanced level of an easy reader. I expect more from a Magic School Bus book.
Magic School Bus books go into a very appropriate depth for a child. This book did not. It also painted a rosy picture of life in Ancient Egypt. I realize a kids book shouldn't be depressing but it shouldn't make it seem like the Ancient Egyptians had an easy life. The flooding of the Nile each year wasn't even mentioned. This flooding cycle had a great affect on the daily life of the Ancient Egyptians.
All in all, if you would like a book on Ancient Egypt that shows your child a realistic portrayal of Ancient Egyptian life, this is NOT the book for you. This is a fictional story book.
