    My sister Megan and I got into hieroglyphics when we were younger, and loved writing our names in hieroglyphics, especially on our schoolwork. Although some of the small symbols are hard to draw when you are in a hurry, this book gives you an edge on some other books on the subject, as it includes a stencil containing all of the alphabet hieroglyphics on it. Besides hieroglyphics, the 32-page book also offers the reader background on the Rosetta Stone, Egyptian gods and goddesses, mummies, and other aspects of ancient Egyptian culture. Kids learn not only the basic hieroglyphic alphabet, but also determinatives and how some different symbols were often used to spell the same things. - Jess

    Learn to write like the ancient Egyptians did - with hieroglyphs. Although they were probably first used as pictures, hieroglyphs eventually began to represent sounds. There are 24 hieroglyphs representing the single sounds found in the Egyptian language, and these hieroglyphs can be used like letters of the alphabet to make words and sentences. This kit includes 24 rubber hieroglyphic stamps, a black inkpad, an alphabet chart, and a 48-page softcover book. The book covers a wide range of details regarding the orientation of hieroglyphs, counting with hieroglyphs, hieroglyphic clues, deciphering hieroglyphs, and much more. Stamps measure 7/8 x 7/8. -Enh

    Turn all the cards face down to see dozens of pairs of Egyptians eyes looking up at you. Flip over two to make a pair, if you dont make a pair, turn them back down and wait your turn to try again. Each 2.5 cardboard square has a letter from the English alphabet and an image from ancient hieroglyphs found in Egypt: J for jackal, L for lion, M for man and P for pyramid, etc. They come in a really nice little box too.

    I was hoping to learn some hieroglyphs and though there are none on the cards, there is a booklet included that does have the symbols corresponding to the ABCs. The booklet explains how hieroglyphs were created to represent ideas, not just objects, and even encourages kids to create their own hieroglyphs to represent their ideas. Imagine what your kids could create! Use this game to add variety to a unit study of ancient Egypt. ~ Sara

    An enthralling description of the 1799 discovery of this famous artifact and the extensive work involved in, finally, deciphering it. It begins with the story of the accidental discovery of the stone in the ruins of an old fort near the town of Rosetta during Napoleons occupation of Egypt. Then the author recounts the various attempts by French, Swedish and English scholars to decipher the message and shows why each ended in failure. At long last, a young French scholar surmised that some hieroglyphics stood for objects and others for sounds, and succeeded in deciphering almost all of them. Illustrations made from engravings by an artist on the expedition give an on-the-scene air to the book, while close-up photographs of the stone from the British Museum make clear the difference between the three languages - Greek, hieroglphyic and demotic - carved on the stone.

    Twins Matt and Bibi accompany their parents to Egypt on an archaeological dig. When they are trapped in a pyramid, they must follow the hieroglyphic symbols to find the burial chamber and a way out. The hieroglyphics are made out of geometric solid symbols instead of traditional ciphers. As the twins follow clues that tell them to look for shapes with different numbers of faces, they talk about the geometric solids they encounter. Its not a thorough review of geometric solids, but its a fun introduction that kids will enjoy, with full-color illustrations, puns and humor. By Cindy Neuschwander, 32 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    This amazing book by John H. Taylor is a mummy book for the upper grades and adults. It carries the explanation of mummy imaging far beyond what most books do, describing mummies using the latest noninvasive imaging technology and CG visualization techniques. Specifically, the book explores the mummy of Nesperennub, a man who was an Egyptian priest over 3,000 years ago. The beginning part of the book shares all that is known of Nesperennub based on hieroglyphs and inscriptions. Then the book describes in detail the modern imaging techniques that make it possible for scientists and archaeologists to study the bodies, materials, and objects on mummies without damaging them or even unwrapping them. The book details what is known about Nesperennub thanks to modern imaging technology, including jewelry, age, dental health, physical health, the appearance of his face, and his mummification process. Full-color CT scans and x-rays are included throughout the book to illustrate the findings and show how useful the imaging is. There are also 3D computer images and cross-sections of the mummy, which show pretty much everything there is to know about the mummy while the specimen itself remains undisturbed. Clear captions describe each photo, x-ray, or scan, and readers will learn a bit about ancient Egyptian history, a lot about Nesperennub, and pretty much everything there is to know about how modern scientists analyze and study mummies. Text is small and fairly easy to read, and graphics take up about half of the pages. There are 100 illustrations in all (70 in full color). This is a captivating and fact-filled book. 48 pages, softcover. ~Rachel
