Tough Times: A Kid's Life in Ancient Egypt
Roger Canavan, David Antram
Tough Times: A Kid’s Life in Ancient Egypt shows the world of ancient Egypt through the eyes of a craftsman’s child, using cartoon-like illustrations, easy-to-read text, fact boxes and maps to immerse young readers in the sights, sounds and smells of the period. Dodge crocodiles on the Nile, decipher some hieroglyphics and witness the ghastly and gruesome mummification process... if you dare!
By covering familiar subjects such as school, family, careers and entertainment, young readers are able to relate the lives of the historical figures to their own experiences, which aids their ability to absorb historical knowledge.
