Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2017 November)

Gr 1–4—This oversize inventive lift-the-flap book uses gorgeous graphic design and solid facts to provide an engaging overview of ancient Egypt. Each spread of this clean, pleasingly arranged book focuses on an aspect of ancient Egyptian history and culture, beginning with an introductory paragraph on the main topic, such as pharaohs or temples, after which readers can lift and flip various flaps to discover more specifics. For example, in the section on embalming, a sarcophagus features three layers of information and graphics detailing the spiritual and physical makeup of sarcophagi. Other topics featuring equally enlightening spreads include the Nile River and its influence and inspiration and the ancient Egyptian way of life, describing the sophistical clothing, toys, games, food, and entertainment they enjoyed. Pharaohs, gods and temples are illustrated and described in detail with simple but effective terms that provide age-appropriate facts and context for each topic. Back pages provide an ancient Egyptian time line, some examples of hieroglyphics and cartouches, and brief biographical information on famous pharaohs and queens. While the information provided is straightforward and familiar, the physical book offers a wholly unique and enjoyable method of discovery that will attract young readers and keep them eagerly turning pages and lifting flaps. VERDICT Recommended as an additional purchase for large collections where nonfiction circulates well.—Kristy Pasquariello, Wellesley Free Library, MA
