The fourth in Annick’s series of historical jobs is another romp through a unique time and place – in this case, Ancient Egypt. It is similar in format to the others, a little bit of history followed by detailed descriptions of one hundred jobs divided into various categories. While some jobs are basically the same whether you are in the Middle Ages or Ancient Egypt (baker, priest, teacher, doctor), some are specific to this place. Perhaps you would like to be a chariote

It was really interesting to learn about jobs in ancient Egypt. Trust me, they are not like our's today.
This is an excellent resource book for any young reader who is interested in learning more about the Ancient Egyptians and their times/culture. The illustrations are humorous and there is plenty of resource information to make this a favorite book in your collection. An absolute must to add to your youth non fiction collection.
This one was a joy to read. I love Ancient Egyptian history and this one amazed me with its short yet highly informative sections on the jobs of Ancient Egyptians. Very impressive book for teens and children.
I found several minor historical errors but it was nice and informative.

I love to dance. I love to laugh. I love to learn. Crossword puzzles relax me. Waiting frustrates me. I like spending time by myself. I use way too much salt. I make New Year's resolutions. My ideal job would be writing a television sitcom. The Great Gilly Hopkins is my favorite kids' book. I appreciate witty people. I dislike whiners. I have better friends than I deserve and a family that gives m ...more
