I think this book is easy to understand for children in the 1st and 2nd grade at least. My son read this book for a book report on Egypt and talked about the things he learned for days later. "Mom did you know this and Mom did you know that..." Definitly a great book for school.
This great book on Ancient Egypt provides a brief history of Ancient Egypt, through its river, its numerous pharaohs, its trade, religion, mummies, pyramids, culture, and medicine. A short glossary is made available. Recommended for youngsters, ages 8 to 10.
