This month we are studying world cultures. Not really studying as being exposed to. To that end Little got these two books on Egypt from the library. Going along with my less is more theory I figure that since she is two she can check out two books. The first book I did not care for and the second was pretty good.
This is the book I didn’t care for. In some ways it was much to old for Little as the last half seemed to get in the methods of embalming. What really irritated me though was that after the first half of the book they had talked about 4 Gods (though not really in a correct manner) and never once mentioned one single Goddess. By the time we got to the mummies I was over the book and it got put down, never to be picked up again.
This one was much better. For one it has a lot of repetition which is good for Little’s age. We read it several times and Little seemed to like it. She had lots of questions about different pictures and often got hung up on the picture of the Lion. From there she would decided that either the lion was getting her or she was a Lion and she would run around the house and roar which was really adorable.
She also did some art work with an Egypt theme this week. that is to say she scribbled with various crayons on some sheets I printed out. I will share some pictures of that tomorrow.
