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

Understanding and appreciating nature begins with immersing ourselves into the environment in which we are most familiar. Whether in the city or suburbs, seaside or countryside, we all have the opportunity to develop a love for nature through the study of birds. This beautifully illustrated book will inspire you through graphics, hands-on activities and observations. Topically, children will learn how to create a bird journal, identify feather shapes and field marks, beaks and feet marks, migration, and the variety of food eaten by birds. A sampling of the 30 hands-on activities includes making bird feeders, drawing birds, measuring (your) wingspan, creating a territory map, designing a poster and numerous observation activities. Adding to the value are a glossary of terms; common and scientific names list; recommended online resources and a 2-page teacher guide with extension activities. A perfect resource for introducing Nature studies or for complementing a bird unit study. 108 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne
