Lift the flaps and open wide pages to delve deep into the life of Ancient Egypt.

Don’t you just love the details in the illustrations? This is a well-done book that will delight any student of Ancient Egypt. I learned so much. It could easily be the start of any study of Egypt, and then use points of interest to explain your research into this culture and time.
I have to admit, I like this book so much I am leaving it in it’s protective sleeve. 🙂 I just don’t want to risk it being damaged at all. 🙂 Silliness I know.. what’s the use of a good book if you keep it wrapped up? I just love all the fold outs, lift that flaps, and other treasures to be found within the pages. 🙂 It has been used! And I’ll bring it out again, but until then.. protective sleeves are good eh?
