I can't believe the holiday season is upon us. It has already been a busy few weeks. Hopefully I will be able to post some great gift ideas for the children in your lives....starting with something I would have wanted as a gift when I a kid.
Ancient Egypt: Tales of Gods and Pharaohs written and illustrated by Marcia Williams is a wonderfully illustrated book retelling nine stories of Ancient Egypt. I am not usually a person who likes comic strip type storytelling but this one works for me. I think it is because the illustrations remind me of hieroglyphics, which is a very appropriate way to tell stories about Ancient Egypt. It is a very accessible and fun way to learn history. Like I said I would have loved to get this as a gift when I was young....(oh who am I kidding I would love it now!)
