This has been amazing week in world news. What is going on in Egypt seems to have happened suddenly and with such force. There are many books for kids dealing with Egypt but most of them seem to deal more with Ancient Egypt.
Egypt A to Z by Jeff Reynolds is a great book to read and talk about during this crisis. This book talks about the country as it is today not just how it was in the past. It is part of a series that talks about the countries of the world. It has information about the geography, culture, history, people, economy and politics. This is a perfect introduction to a country in crisis.
