PYRAMIDS AND MUMMIES is another fun, interactive book for readers of all ages.

With information included on the lives of Pharoahs, dressing the dead and creating an actual "mummy," how the pyramids were built, ancient spells and stories, and much, much more, this is one book destined to impress readers who can't get enough about all things Egyptian.

Author Anne Bolton has done her homework regarding ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses, including Akhenaten, Nefertiti, and Tutankhamun, whose name means "Living Image of the God Amun." The book even includes information on animal mummies and mummy curses.

Kids, regardless of age, will have fun discovering what's in the envelopes included in the book, along with the lift-the-flap interactive information. There's even a game at the end of the book, called "Asps and Ladders," with included game pieces.

This would be a great classroom guide for middle school teachers, but it's also just a fun read for those interested in Egyptian history. ( )
