Description

"Why were pyramids pyramid shaped?" "How were they built?" "Who were the ancient Egyptians?" "Why did they write on walls?" These are just a few of the questions likely to be asked about ancient Egypt by an inquisitive child. Designed to stimulate further questioning and discovery, this title is one of a history series for children of six and upwards. Packed with pictures, concise text and reader activities, the book brings ancient Egypt to life. It also looks at how we know about life along the Nile over 5,000 years ago.
