The Worldwise series for 7-9 year olds covers a wide range of subjects, and this book is designed to broaden children's understanding of the Egyptians.

Gr 2-5--Two flawed series entries. The full-color illustrations are attractive, but do not always correspond to the accompanying texts. A more serious problem, however, is the writing. Commas are sprinkled willy-nilly. Appalling mistakes in punctuation, syntax, and grammar appear on every page. In describing foods eaten by Egyptians, Morley writes that sometimes there were more fish and fowl caught than could be eaten and so "...the surplus were gutted, dried in the sun and then stored in jars of salt." It is unfortunate that this basic history series is so fraught with errors.
