My child loves this book! There is so much information packed into the book with several flaps to peek in on each page. The book is historically and archaeologically accurate and offers so much to learn! The pages are sturdy and hold up to a 1 year old pulling and tugging on it. By far it is worth your time and money!
“A lovely book full of facts and bright colours. The children were intrigued to find out what was behind the flaps and this kept their interest, as did the gruesome details – such as a jar containing lungs and intestines in the tombs. The cardboard pages also make the book sturdy which is great in a busy children’s environment. It is a great resource for teaching an understanding of this time period.”

Look inside Mummies and Pyramids works on a number of levels for a range of ages.”
