Parents in Touch
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!
