Mummies are certainly tempting to touch, but that's not permitted in the museums where they're usually found. This interactive book not only allows but encourages young readers to touch — and learn all about — an Egyptian mummy.
Each page provides another piece of the puzzle as children learn how Egyptians buried and entombed their dead — including making burial masks, giving amulets for an underworld journey, wrapping mummies from head to toe, preserving the body, and placing sacred organs in canopic jars.
Along the way, the book offers fascinating background information on famous pharaohs and historical events, including the recent discovery of new tombs.
