    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

    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

    This book covers it all, from the dawn of history right up to the year 2000, for all the major civilizations, all the rulers, and all the events in world history. Pages are filled with clear, interesting accounts of historical events, realistic reconstructions of scenes, and tons of incredible photographs. More than 100 charts and maps are included, allowing you to see exactly where events took place. Besides being an intriguing book to read, this is also your link to world history on the web. After reading about a subject, go online; every link leads you to a website where you can read additional information, watch video clips, play games, see photos, and use other unique website features to experience "virtually" all of world history. I was never much for history, but I wish I had this book when I was younger; these websites look really intriguing. For a study of the ancient world you can get virtual tours of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, a virtual walking tour of Rome and Athens, learn to speak Ancient Greek, write in hieroglyphics, take interactive tours of museums, explore the Valley of Kings in Egypt and learn about the pharaohs buried there and their tombs through photos and panoramic movies, view profiles of famous Romans and Greeks, explore a clickable Roman marketplace, and loads more. Some sights are interactive, where you can, for example, reenact the Battle of Hastings, and some are treasure troves of information, maps, timelines, and diagrams.

    Note: The first 100 or so pages of the book discuss the "Prehistoric World" (starting 4,550 million years ago with the Big Bang and proceeding to 12,000 years ago when the last ice age came to an end). This section outlines evolution and likely contains objectionable material. However, the rest of the sections (Ancient World, Medieval World, Last 500 Years) are more factual and make up for the first. A colorful, captivating book. 416 pages. Stephanie

    It's the job of Pepi's father to paint and carve pictures in the future-tomb of Prince Dhutmose. He paints best when he has a living example to work from, but how is he supposed to do that with the god-animals like Sebek the Crocodile and Mertseger the Cobra? Fortunately, Pepi knows their secret names, and sets out to convince them to come with him. This oversized childrens' book is super colorful and introduces hieroglyphics. – Chad

    This kit contains every kid's dream! Reading about ancient Egypt is one thing, but taking part in wrapping a mummy is another. Through this interactive set, children have the opportunity to wrap a mummy (8.5" x 2.75") and paint a sarcophagus (9.5"x 3.5"x 3") and canopic jars (2.25"x 4.5"). These objects are formed from durable cardboard—the same material as egg cartons. Included are seven acrylic colors and metallic paint, air dry clay, hieroglyphic stickers, rub-off stickers, paint brush, marker, sponge, sandpaper, and instructions and ideas for painting authentic Egyptian designs. Once the mummy is wrapped and placed in his newly-decorated sarcophagus, children can decorate the inside of the pyramid to display the finished collection. What more could kids want? – John

    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. It's not a thorough review of geometric solids, but it's a fun introduction that kids will enjoy, with full-color illustrations, puns and humor. By Cindy Neuschwander, 32 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    It is sad to think that all of the big pyramids have already been discovered and excavated by archaeologists in the past. Sometimes it can feel like there is very little left to discover. Luckily, we have something that will keep that flame alive within your budding archaeologist - an unexplored pyramid full of treasures waiting to be uncovered! This 5-inch tall pyramid and archaeological pamphlet will engage young explorers in a mission to unlock the tomb and find the hidden contents. The only way into the tomb is to first decipher the hieroglyphs, which show you where to start digging. Supplied in the kit are all the tools needed to complete the dig - a hammer, brush, chisel, plastic peg, sponge, and safety goggles. The pamphlet details some of the history and secrets that are known about the real-life pyramids and also gives kids tips on how to complete their own archaeological digs. A hands-on addition to any study of Ancient Egypt. – Zach

    If you have a child interested in Egypt, you can't pass up this amazing book. It is presented as a reproduction of a journal that was written by an explorer in 1926, with the actual author and illustrator taking no credit anywhere in the book. The oversized journal has a scrapbook feel. It's a hardcover book, wrapped in gold with red plastic jewel inlays to embellish the appearance. As you follow the course of the explorer, Emily Sand, on her expedition, each spread of the book tells you about different aspects of Egypt and exploration in the 1920s. Learn about pyramids, pharaohs, the Egyptian gods, hieroglyphics, mummies, and more. It is a compelling read and has a fun, interactive format. The book is mostly factual in content, with casual remarks from Emily to reinforce the journal-like facade of the book. Text looks like it came from an old typewriter, and italic handwriting describes the sketches and illustrations. There are authentic looking papyrus pull-outs, mini-books, fold-out maps, postcards, ticket stubs, and even a sample of mummy cloth Emily found on her trip. As Emily's expedition team searches for the lost tomb of Osiris, they learn much about ancient Egyptian history until they mysteriously disappear, leaving the rest of the journal blank. While other books may contain more information about Egypt, this one gives a great overview and is packaged so attractively that I'm sure many kids will mistake it for an authentic scrapbook from a 1920s trip to Egypt. Contains 30 pgs full of text, illustrations, and pull-outs, measures 10"x12", hc. ~ Rachel
