Describes the techniques and the reasons for the use of mummification in ancient Egypt.

This book was about mummies and the steps that are taken when a person of importance would die in ancient egypt. This book taught me a lot of things that I never even knew about mummies such as the multiple stages of pre-burial wrapping that they do to the bodies, and also the reasons behind such unique burial traditions.

This book made it fun and interesting to learn the facts about making mummies. It provided interesting pictures of the events that take place during the mummification, and little passages or notes about them. I found this book to be very educational and also fun at the same time. ( )

I thought that this was a pretty good summary of mummification. It hit on a little bit of the history and changes of it, the aspects of the burial, a little bit about why they did mummification, all without getting too long or getting too involved in the explanation. ( )

Provides students between the ages of 9-12 information on mummies made in the past. Pictures are great, and the text is very interesting. Mummies are something that most students are very interested in, and this book provides a lower level text to give students an understanding of mummification, symbols, and reasoning.
