Our family has tickets to go see the King Tut exhibit at the Pacific Science Center this summer and everyone but our two-year-old is super excited. In order to help prepare my seven-year-old for this experience, I purchased a copy of Who Was King Tut? by Roberta Edwards, which is written at the third grade reading level and includes lots of pictures.
Another book we already own that talks about King Tut is Historical Heroes, Wickedly Funny Profiles of Six Time Honurored Megastars! No, I am not misspelling that. It is a British book, and really funny. You can check out my full review here.
We are also going to reread pages 99-102 in Susan Wise Bauer’s Story of the World Volume 1, which has a great introduction to King Tut as well. My SOTW #1 review is here.
Basically, if I’m going to spend $50 on King Tut tickets this summer, then I want to make sure that we get the most educational bang for our buck. 🙂
