About this title

Synopsis:

Egypt is a land of timeless monuments and artifacts. It is also a land marked by the changes brought by the modern world; where camel drivers talk on cell phones and ancient tombs are moved to make way for modern dam building projects. With photographs, this work addresses the problems of pollution, global warming, and erosion on the land.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-6-Each of these books touches on both ancient and modern life, but to different degrees determined by the subject matter. For example, Culture is dominated by ancient times and religious beliefs. A briefer section mentions modern religious practices, art, music, dance, and other forms of popular culture. By contrast, Land concentrates primarily on how the land is used today. It describes the importance of the Nile River in sustaining life and the growth of major cities, such as Cairo and Alexandria. It only briefly mentions some of the monuments left behind by ancient people. People is mostly devoted to the lives of modern Egyptians. It describes different lifestyles in villages, cities, and the desert, as well as the importance of Islam and Egyptian festivals. There are also sections on family customs, sports, schools, and food. Colorful photos on every page illustrate modern life and the relics of the past. Libraries will need to buy all three of these titles to provide a general understanding of Egyptian life.-Kristen Oravec, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Strongsville, OH
