Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Four new countries and nine updated editions have been added to Bobbie Kalman's popular Lands, Peoples, and Cultures series. These powerful and intimate portraits of countries use up-to-date information and full-color photography. Presented in a mini series format, three books per country ensures thorough coverage of all the important aspects. It also allows more students to work on different projects at the same time. Covering more than basic history and geography, students will be fascinated to learn about:

-- the land... geography, agriculture, transportation, history, industry, and glorious wonders

-- the people... unique customs, customs we share, problems faced by minority groups and women

-- the culture... modern festivals, ancient processions, food, games, and more

Find out how the ancient Egyptians built the great pyramids and made mummies of the dead. Children will love learning how to spell their names in hieroglyphs. Modern Egyptian culture is also featured with special sections on religion, art, music, and dance.

Topics include:

-- daily life in ancient and modern Egypt

-- pharaohs, slaves, and gods

-- fashion and make-up

-- pyramids, mummies, and archaeology

-- holidays and festivals

-- inside a mosque

-- music, dance, art, and folktales

Synopsis:

Learn how ancient Egyptians built pyramids, made mummies and spelled with hieroglyphs. Modern Egyptian culture also is featured with special sections on religion, art, music and dance.
