Ancient Egypt Reviews

  • Seth Abernethy

    These "Eyewitness" books, to me, have always been pretty efficient in their goal of educating young children. As a history buff, I always wish books covering history for kids would have all the little details, but I realize that is unrealistic, so I started looking at them as gateway books for future history education. So as a children's non-fiction educational book, this one does the job well. Being somewhat well-reversed in ancient Egyptian history, this does a respectable job covering the art [...]

    Eyewitness: Ancient Egypt is a visual feast of beautifully photographed artifacts and rich illustrations.  The text provides just enough information on topics such as "Life on the Nile", "Healing the Sick", "Food and Drink" and "Games" to engage young readers' minds without overwhelming them with unnecessary details. New copies of Eyewitness: Ancient Egypt also include a poster with a summary of ancient Egypt that is perfect for any curious kids' room.

    Just enough information get your mind going and wanting to know more about the wonders of Egypt

  • Ameya

    I found it really strange that Egyptians long ago hired mourners when someone died!!

  • Samantha Glasser

    Eyewitness books were very popular at my school and when we went to the school library they were usually all checked out. This was one of my favorites.

  • Steven Peterson

    This is another in the series of books published under the "Eyewitness Books" imprimatur. These are designed for younger readers, to introduce them to important subjects. The focus here? Ancient Egypt. To understand human history, a sense of Egypt's role is critical, just as the study of Greece and Rome. This book does a nice job for its audience; those who want in depth discussion ought to look elsewhere. The volume begins with a brief history of Egypt and notes the role of the Pharaohs (includ [...]

    Coleção DK Eyewitness é linda e este livro é visualmente incrível, sendo as imagens bem distribuídas e com um texto enxuto.Aliás, ele trata do Egito do cotidiano, tendo assim uma abordagem bem mais moderna do que outros livros introdutórios. Só ficou faltando mais informação, eu queria mais dados sobre por exemplo as roupas e o imaginário egípcio antigo. Entendo que seja uma omissão que vem mais da falta de fontes (e o próprio autor deixa claro que sabemos muito mais sobre Morte d [...]

    We surveyed this one, meaning I had the LO look through the pictures and read about what interested him. I'll be coming back to it when he's older, but just the survey gave him a better idea of what Mom is working on. He was most interested in the papyrus plant (since I have papyrus sheets out in my studio), anything about cats and crocodiles, weapons, food and games. We made and played the Snake board game when we were done.

    Ancient Egypt is a book full of colorful, real-life pictures. It tells about the rivers and pyramids. It goes into depth about mummies, humans and animals. the pictures in this book are just amazing. The pictures are in color and large.This book would be great for a history lesson on ancient places or simply just Egypt. Learning about mummies and what the land looks like. Children would find this book very interesting by the pictures and information about how things were created.

    A Christmas gift for my son who is homeschooled. I plan to use this beautiful thorough book for our lessons on ancient Egypt. This will be all I really need. The illustrations are fabuous and the subject matter is covered in great detail. This one offers delight to me and my 6 year old. I know he'll return to it when he's older and can read it himself.

  • Timothy Boyd

    OK I know these are supposed to be kid books but they are awesome! Great pictures and just enough text to make you want to learn more. Great choices for a beginning history reader or to start an older reader out in a new area. Every time I pick one of these up and read it I learn new things. Highly Recommended

    DK is my favorite publisher of children's books. Their "Eyewitness" series is especially great, with wonderful illustrations, tons of facts and stories, and eye-catching design. My 4-year old son loves the Egypt one because it shows (among many other things) the booby traps that kept thieves out of the pyramids! Fun

  • Loryn Tindall

    Full offacts about Ancient Egypt, this book was very informative and interesting. There were ideas that I had no idea Egypt got into. Did you know that the Ancient Egyptions had sketchpads and ate pomegranets? I definitely did not. It is a very interesting read.

    I am an ancient Egypt nut!!! The eyewitness books are always great for reading to obtain information. The book contained great facts, diagrams, and the pictures were awesome!! It's like being transported to another world. It's a great book for students who are looking to discover something new.

  • Alison

    One of those great DK books where everything is laid out, loads of pictures and information is informative but simple. Great for upper primary, teens and adults too for quick reference. I never regret buying a DK book.
