What Readers Are Saying

 

 “Filled with beautiful photographs of Egypt’s rich culture, the book reads like a children’s version of The Amazing Race...Don’t let the title fool you. This is not a preschool letter learning book for pre-school children, though they are sure to enjoy the wonderful pictures. This is a thoughtful, informative journey for 9-12 year olds which can be fully appreciated by adults as well.”

An ABC Escapade through Egypt is also a relevant textbook for children of English speaking foreigners attending international schools in Egypt. And with its colorful photographs printed on simulated papyrus background, the book is also a fine souvenir to bring back home.”

“An ABC Escapade through Egypt is a wonderful book for children within Egypt or outside to learn a little about things uniquely Egyptian. It isn't just for the little ones who are learning the alphabet, but can be a reading tool even for slightly older children.”

“This is a beautiful book! The pictures are gorgeous, and the text is just wonderful! Children of all ages will enjoy this. Younger children will appreciate the colorful photographs while teaching them the ABC's. Older children will love that the text is not too "textbook"--it's actually fun to read! And even adults will probably learn more about modern Egypt than they have ever learned before!”
