Covers the history of Egypt from its earliest known beginnings to its conquest by Greece and later Rome. Dips briefly into some evolutionary babbling but recovers nicely. Each chapter is devoted to one important pharaoh, including Queen Hatshepsut (who may have rescued Moses from the Nile), Thutmose III (the pharaoh of the oppression), and Akhnaton, the monotheistic pharaoh. Easily read aloud.
