A delightful, hands-on way to learn all about the Egyptians of old This book whisks kids back in time thousands of years to spend a special and surprising day in Ancient Egypt. Modern children follow a typical Egyptian family through their day, and along the way they get to do all the things the Egyptians did-from making crocodile masks and writing with hieroglyphs to making a scarab amulet and painting a mummy case. Over 30 fun and easy step-by-step projects revolve around the story of an exciting festival in honor of the Egyptian goddess Bastet. Packed with sidebars full of detailed historical information and facts, Spend the Day in Ancient Egypt offers children a unique glimpse into an exotic and remarkable civilization.
