A great living book. It gives another view of ancient Egypt, this time from an Egyptian noble family. After enjoying the stories of Moses and Joseph repeatedly, my older girl is interested in this story. We are still reading the story together, as a read-aloud, but I already went ahead and finished it.
I knew this was a children's book, but the target audience was younger than I expected.

It's a nice little story and older kids can pick up a few tidbits of Ancient Egyptian history in the reading, but it's better real aloud to younger kids ( ages 5 - 10) and the olders just reading it to themselves.
I wasn't going to read this book. I was simply going to let my daughter read it for her history lessons. However, after reading a paragraph for her dictation, I became interested. This was a shorter book and I was able to read it in just a few hours, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I really shouldn't rate this, but Isaiah's read it about 6 times this year. My goal is to read it this summer before Aaron gets to it!
Enjoyed this book to compliment Ancient Egypt studies.
