This review is for my own purposes, so feel free to ignore it.

I didn't dislike this book, but I didn't love it either.

The lexile is a little low for the 7th grade curriculum... That, and I don't think it would mesh with the lower level readers either, because it takes a little to get into, and the names are so confusing. (And a 117 page book shouldn't take too long to develop...)

Stuff that ties into the State Standards:

Egypt
Nile River
Delta
Ancient Egyptian Achievements in Art
Polytheism
Mummification
Social Structure

Geason could have easily added a bit about theocracy, but it seemed lacking to me.

I don't think it's what we're looking for, but I'll pass it along.
