    "I teach third grade, and for the past 5 years I have integrated an Egypt study using, among others, this book. "Mummies, Pyramids, & Pharaohs" isn't one the kids would choose for a light, fun read, but it is full of information and is presented in kid-friendly language. I use it in a center and have the students read the book to fact-find."

    "This is a great book for kids to learn more about ancient Egypt. I loved that it focused a lot on their day to day life and less on the rulership and pyramids and stuff. You can find that information everywhere, but something about how egyptians lived is really unique and interesting."

    "This book is a very informative guide to mummies of all kinds, most of which are historical! I really loved being able to read this book again (After having borrowed it from the local library). And this time, it came with a little extra bonus! Very nice. The only thing it did not mention was the Tocharian Mummies. And to me, they are some of the most fascinating mummies I ever learned about."
