This is an interesting book about what things were like back in ancient Egypt. It talks about the historical timeline of Egypt as well as what they believed, who ruled them and how, how they prepared their dead and what life was life them. It is well put together and easy to understand.

I chose the book Cleopatra VII Daughter of the Nile by Kristina Gregory for my fiction twin for this book. It is written as a diary of a young girl living in Ancient Egypt. I felt that this would be a great match

I chose this book because it is very easy to read. It would be suited for intermediate students because it has a lot of text. There are a variety of pictures and captions throughout as well as a glossary.

Crispin Boyer lives in San Francisco and writes about history, wildlife, and technology. He and his wife, Ramah, are the lord and lady of a 1914 Victorian that is 700 times smaller than a typical castle but almost as drafty. Their microwave might not roast an ox like most medieval ovens, but at least their bathroom isn't a hole in the wall that empties into a stinky moat.
