Encylopedia of Ancient Egypt.
I thought this book was incredibly interesting as I especially enjoyed the part in the Early Egypt section where it says 'The Predynastic Period' with the picture of the terracotta dancing lady. I also liked the part about the two crowns as I never knew that upper Egypt and lower Egypt had different coloured crowns. Since I first started to read this book I can't stop reading it! I'm going to become a book worm if you bring out any more books like that one! So PPLLEEAASSEE bring out another one!

I can't praise Usborne enough for introducing [internet links] to many of their non-fiction books as it really helps children retain information.

The encyclopedia is full of stunning photographs and detailed illustrations. It also has a comprehensive factfinder featuring a time chart, a list of who's who and details of recent archaeological finds. Internet links offer a selection of recommended related websites, with sound, animation or video clips that provide additional information for projects and homework. It forms part of Usborne's excellent ancient history range for children.
A stunningly illustrated and presented book, which is deserving of a place on any bookshelf... includes a comprehensive factfinder featuring a time chart, a list of who's who and details of recent archaeological finds, showing there is still much to learn and discover.
