Part of the Disgusting History series, this book takes history and turns it into something gross. It discusses toilets, scrambled brains, lice, mummies, and diarrhea… therefore, most kids will love this book!
Besides all the totally gross and totally fun information about life in ancient Egypt, the book’s format is ideal for developing readers and researchers. The book begins with a time line and map, and the book is overflowing with bright colors, illustrations, and borders. The book also includes a glossary, index, further reading, and web information. Each chapter is about two pages long and extra facts pop up in the illustrations as speech bubbles. Key words are in bold, with the definitions at the bottom of the page (as well as in the glossary at the end). Foul facts are also sprinkled throughout, keeping readers engaged and thoroughly disgusted.
