Product Description

Review

'A history book doesn't have to be boring - your child can take in the facts in the form of tabloid newspaper headlines in the Newspaper Histories (will you pick up the Stone Age Sentinel or the Egyptian Echo?). Suddenly medieval events seem a lot more like our big news stories of the day...' - The School Run

Inside This Book

First Sentence
Not since the Sun god Ra created the world and sent his fellow gods to rule over us has there been such upheaval. For the first time ever the marshlands of the lower Nile Delta and the thin farmlands of the upper Nile Valley are now one country. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
As this book was published by Usborne I had no qualms about buying it for use in the year 4 classroom....how wrong I was! It seemed to be a perfect text to combine the Literacy Unit on Newspaper reports with the History Unit on Ancients Egyptians...oh no.
Having shown the book to the Head and other teachers it is abundantly clear that this is not suitable for classroom use. I do not doubt that the historical facts are accurate but I think I would have a queue of parents at the classroom door demanding an explanation for using texts with the title ' Sex Change Pharaoh claims dad was a god' (page 8) or a description of the God Min as ' the god of fertility. Hello Big Boy' (page 12) with a picture of the god with a strategically placed star over his assets!!!!!!!! The Goddess Nut has similarly strategically placed stars (page 12) which is bound to raise questions from yong enquiring minds. An article on dreams (page 22) is described " I was with this really gorgeous man/woman and we were kissing and canoodling and all that" Need I go on? I have never submitted a review on Amazon but in this case I feel very strongly that this is the right thing to do.....

Crammed with accurate historical facts and totally fantastic for kids. I live in Egypt and rent flats out to tourists and always recommend this book for any children that I have coming. As a student of Egyptology I can not fault the facts and I just love the 'adverts'. It is a great pre holiday reading and will enthral most age groups.

Good Egyptian topic book - ideal for teachers teaching Ancient Egypt as a topic - I used with my Year 5 class but could be amended for younger classes

My son's an Egypt freak... (my fault I'm afraid)
He loves all things Egypt and reads the most astounding books for his age (10)
This book is not heavy... this book is light and fun.

There are lots of wondefuly facinating subjects addressed in a very humourous way.
The cover is a great indication of whats inside.

Buy this for your child and you're sure to have them giggling their head off at the first page.

Recommended, especially as an introduction to Egyptian interest.
