    The study of Ancient Egypt is a treat for young and old alike. Where else in history do you find gigantic pyramids, perfectly preserved mummies, cat goddesses, and linen kilts? I know I can't resist a good book about Ancient Egypt, and when I came across this one, I was intrigued both by the content and also by the fact that it's published by Master Books, a Christian publisher most well-known for their creation science materials. I knew I was really in for a treat! Not only is this book absolutely gorgeous, but most importantly for believers, it strives to give a more accurate chronology by using the historical records that all writers on Ancient Egypt use, plus the Hebrew Bible. This gives us a more complete picture of the ancient world as a whole and how the Egyptian culture (which did not exist in isolation) interacted with other cultures. This book takes readers on a tour of Ancient Egypt chronologically, from the first dynasty to the last dynasties. The first 27 chapters each focus on a dynasty (or a portion of one) and examine the archaeology and other records of the time period to suggest possible dates for important events. The last two chapters bring everything together, focusing on the issue of dating and providing a biblically-based set of dates for Egyptian history. You'll not only get a very complete look at the entire Egyptian civilization, but you'll also find references to biblical accounts as well as discussion on assigning dates using a variety of references. Throughout, the reader is treated to full-color captioned photos of the architecture, artifacts, and art of the times. Each chapter begins with a basic timeline on the dynasty being examined, with traditional dates vs. the authors' suggested revised dates, kings reigning during that time, events in Egyptian history, and corresponding events in biblical history. As a bonus, a DVD is included which features David Down, one of the authors, visiting and discussing the pyramids and the temples. The 86-minute DVD presents similar information as in the book, but with video of the sites and terrific commentary for all those audio learners. Although the whole package is a little bit pricey, this is an awesome resource that will doubtlessly enhance your studies in a whole new way! 221 pgs, hc.

    The year is 1924, and the recent discovery of King Tut's tomb is still fresh in everyone's minds. Will Hunt is a boy who is so interested in King Tut that he's part of the King Tut Club!

    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

    This great book is much more than your typical dot-to-dot book. Every second page in the book is an interesting information page that shares facts about different aspects of Ancient Egypt. The info page has a small dot-to-dot activity, but then the following page has a larger picture. Some of the picture is already drawn and students connect the dots to finish it (dots usually go from 1-100 or so). The picture is also great for coloring once completed. About 38 info pages with corresponding dot-to-dot pictures are included. Includes info and pictures on the land, food, farming, transportation, government, family life, clothing, professions, and more. 80 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Many people have heard of Nefertiti, Cleopatra, and King Tut, but not of Hatshepsut. Hatshepsut was a remarkable woman who was born into a royal family around 1530 B.C. She started out as princess and then queen, and she eventually became Pharoah, the King of Egypt. There was simply nobody to hand down the title of king to after her husband passed away, so naturally she took his title. Nobody seemed to mind until about twenty years after her death. Someone then tried to erase all traces of Hatshepsut from history. Her statues were lugged off of their bases, smashed, and buried. Her pictures were scratched out of the scenes on temple walls. Nobody knows for sure why, but there is speculation that Egyptians began to feel that the idea of a female pharaoh was unnatural and perhaps wanted to cover up the fact that one ever existed. This book is loaded with all kinds of information, giving us a glimpse into royal Egyptian life. You will learn about Hatshepsut's life as a princess including vivid descriptions of her environment, what she wore, toys she may have played with, people she interacted with, her education, feasts and festivals. Moving on to the queen and mother stage of her life, we learn about her husband and child, Egyptian society in general, and life and death in the court. Lastly, we watch Queen Hatshepsut become the Pharoah of Egypt around 1501 B.C. Each page is peppered with pictures of artifacts, archeological sites, translated inscriptions, and interesting tidbits. The glossary in the back of the book is sure to clear up any confusion as far as terms the reader may not be familiar with.
