Geometry, Text dependent, grade 2-4

This adventurous story follows two kids venturing in the Egypt, looking at shapes to help them find a mummy. This book is all about geometry, and the author made it more fun by having it linked to a story plot. This story touches on the different shapes (cones, spheres, cylinders, etc.), as well as the faces of these shapes.
I could see a lesson being implemented with this story as students are first being introduced to shapes. It could make a lesson more engaging, and students could understand the concept better as it is presented in a different way, compared to reading it from a textbook. ( )

This book takes the reader on an Egyptian adventure while offering a simplified introduction to geometry. It's fun and clever and is a good introductory book on geometric concepts. ( )

It was about two brothers and they went to Egypt and to the pyramids. They went into the pyramids and got lost and used math shapes like cones, cylinders to guide them around the tunnels leading them out. The brothers talked about math and how it was helpful for them to find there way to go.

Matt, Bibi, and their dog Riley crawled through the tiny opening first. FWUMP! A secret door suddenly closed behind them . . .
The Zills family is summoned to Egypt to help find the hidden burial chamber of an ancient pharaoh. But when Matt and Bibi get trapped in the pharaoh's pyramid, they stumble upon an even bigger mystery. With only each other, their dog Riley, and the geometric hieroglyphics on the walls to help them, the twins must use their math skills to locate the burial chamber―and the way out. Luckily, Matt and Bibi know their stuff when it comes to geometric solids, and so will the readers of this adventure in math!
