Mummies from Ancient Egypt to the Artic

DK and Google have created a website and a book to encourage further study. This guide features age-appropriate links so children can learn more about this topic through interactive features, multimedia content, games and quizzes. They can also download images for projects. Some of the topics in this book include: Ancient Egypt Masks and Coffins Into the Underworld Tomb Robbers Famous Pharaohs Peruvian Mummies Inca Ice Mummies An Artic Mystery Frozen Tombs Desert Discoveries Modern-Day Mummies Mummies on Display If you have any interest in Egypt, this book is especially helpful and gives you additional links so you can go online to do further research. I think adults and children alike will enjoy seeing the artifacts and items like a painted treasure chest. One of the strange stories in this book is about a perfectly preserved body that has now been nicknamed "Sleeping Beauty." Apparently the chemicals used to preserve her body have not been identified and she looks like she is sleeping. Due to the content of this book, I will let you decide if this is appropriate for your child. This might be too frightening for children under the age of 9 or 10 but may be of interest to teenagers and adults. Death is not the only focus of this book. The information about Pyramids being built to align with star constellations, archaeological discoveries and artic expeditions fill out the book nicely and give students an idea of how people lived. I found the items buried with the mummies to be even more interesting than the mummies themselves although the blue body from the bog was a little startling. ~The Rebecca Review

Informative but graphic

Our family is a big fan of these Eyewitness books and this is an excellent overview of all types of mummies.As a warning however, there are quite a few gruesome photographs which might scare kids younger than 6 or 7 so a parent might want to check it out in a bookstore before buying sight unseen.

Fascinating and Interesting

The Mummy Eyewitness book was the first one I ever received. It is excellent at conveying information because it has many interesting bits of information next to beautiful pictures.
