    Eleanor says: I liked learning about how the mummies got put into tombs. There was a funeral procession. First they went the Beautiful House. Then they went to the pyramid. The pyramids and tombs got robbed by tomb robbers. The tomb robbers got beaten and they died if they got caught. They wanted to steal the mummy treasures. I also learned how the mummies get wrapped. It looks like toilet paper, but it is strips of linen. It took a long time to make the body into a mummy.

    Ancient Egypt is one of those topics that you don't even know where to start. Of the books on Ancient Egypt that I have been previewing lately- this one seems to have the most organized and the most clear information for elementary kids. It's short enough to read together in a week or less, and thorough enough to really cover the different topics of Ancient Egypt well.

    Funny story with this: my mom bought this for me when I was very young while we were on vacation. Well, I lost it in the hotel and never found it.

    This is a non-fiction children's book that is a part of the Magic Tree House Research Guide series. It is appropriate for children who are ages 7-10. The book contains a few pictures that are mostly black and white. Questions like "Why did people make mummies?", "What was the mysterious writing on mummy cases?", "How did most ancient Egyptians spend their days?" and "How were the pyramids built?" are just some of the questions answered in this book.

This is a great introduction to non-fiction books for kids. Even though it isn't fantasy/fiction, it's extremely interesting and captivates you with its specific writing. Magic Tree House is a fantastic series for children who love to learn, but this book alone is also a treasure. As you read it, Jack and Annie will feel like your best buddies and you'll want to learn more and more with them. I believe the best part is those two characters specifically. Children will grow more and more excited as they read each page. I believe this book works well for the 7-1o-year-old age group. This book would not be appropriate for any child younger than 7 because of its layout.

I think this book is really interesting in my opinion because i never really knew all of this Egyptian stuff until i read this book. Overall this book is great.

    Mummies and Pyramids by Will Osborn is an interesting way to help teach students about these topics. Students will love the adventures of Jack and Annie. These characters can be relatable to students. They are young and have the same imagination as our students.

    I enjoyed this book as a quick read with some neat facts about mummies and ancient Egypt. One thing I didn’t know about mummies is that the people that made them threw out their brain because they didn’t know what they brain was for. Lol. It seems funny now, but they didn’t know as much about the body as we do.

    I really liked this book because it was non-fiction and I learned a lot about mummies and pyramids. I also learned about where mummies were buried. It made Mummies in the Morning make a lot more sense.

    This book was a good introduction to ancient Egypt for my five year old. It was a bit awkward having to discuss the bits about death and mummification, but there's no real alternative way to discuss mummies.

    This was a good fact tracker. The only thing that would be better (as with all the books in this series) would be to have it in color.

    A little scary for my 4 year old - I would definitely recommend it for an older kid. The information was great for a mama reader though! I learned a few things I didn't know.

    The magic tree house, Mummies and pyramids- This was one of my favorite books when I was younger because I love ancient Egypt and, my grandma taught social studies. I was fascinated reading this book because I got to learn so many new things I didn't know before.

    This wasn't nearly the hit that the dinosaur fact-checker book was. It's just hard to hold his focus if he's not already interested in the subject.

    Interesting. Fun. Informative. Curious about the accuracy of the pronunciation of a couple of the gods mentioned in this. My fiancé plays Smite and they pronounce them differently in that game. Not sure which medium is correct. Other than that, I love this for a briefly introduction to Ancient Egypt studies!

    I think that how mummies are made is weird but also cool. The way that they're made is the priest of the royal kingdom will take the dead body and take it to their little workshop space and preserve it by putting some salts and spices on it and taking all of its organs out except for the heart, and one really weird thing that they do is they take the brain and they throw it away.

The don't know what the brain is or what the brain does. If you don't know, the brain is the most important part in the body except for the heart. The heart keeps you going, and you wanna be able to run and walk. Onto the mummy-making again: they put the organs into special jars. I don't remember what they're called, but if you read the fact tracker about mummies and pyramids, you can find out because it has pretty much all the information about Egypt. After the priests do that, they leave the body for about 14 or 40 days (I think it's 14), and they come back, and they wash the body, and then they put it on the table and take out it's heart. They are very careful with the heart because they think the heart is the most important thing in your whole body. It kind of is. They take the heart and wrap it up with linen streets (which is the very last thing that is going to happen to the mummy). Then they take salt and spices and they wrap the body in linen strips, and then they put it in something called a sarcophagus and then put it in its tomb. And that's how to make a mummy. I'd say preserving a mummy is very hard. Then they put it in a tomb. A pyramid is a type of tomb, and I hope you enjoy reading Magic Treehouse books, and if you come to the Egyptian one, I think that you should also get the fact tracker. Bye-bye and have fun reading Magic Treehouse books if you do!

    The thrilling book named Mummies and Pyramids is an amazing book that describes how the ancient Egyptians did to the important people that died and all about their culture. The mummy is a preserved dead body that the Egyptians used to do to all dead bodies. The pyramids were built as tombs for the Egyptians kings and the pharoahs. It was the largest thing built before and one of them in Giza is a legendary wonder in the world. The Egyptians had the belief of the afterlife.

The mummy is a preserved dead body that the Egyptians used to do to all dead bodies. The pyramids were built as tombs for the Egyptians kings and the pharoahs. It was the largest thing built before and one of them in Giza is a legendary wonder in the world. The Egyptians had the belief of the afterlife. It means that after the human dies they still have a second life. They beleived that the afterlife was determined by a god called Osiris. If a human had a very good life and didnt harm, he would go to The Field Of Reeds. The Field Of Reeds was a huge field filled with food and water that all the good humans would have a happy life forever. On the other hand if the haert was full of wickedness then the human will be gobbled up by a monster. This is how the Ancient Egyptians used the mummies and pyramids. Acrostic Poem: Portrait of tomb Yaru fields Reed fields Ancient Mummification Invention Death Spirits This book would definitely be recommended for several reasons. First, this describes every step about mummification and explains the use of pyramids. Second, it had images that show the old process. Third, the ancient life of Egypt is compared to the present day which can show the reader the evolution and change. This book would be recommended to people who like non-fiction, interested in science and biology. Also to the people that are interested in ancient life and ancient culture. On the other hand, I would not recommend this book to people that love adventure and hate history because this is all about history.

    Genesis Jack and annie are writeing a lot of notes about mummies and pyramids. Also they are discovering new things when they go to egypt.

THis book is really fun too. Also if you want to learn about egypt then YOU!!! should read this BOOK! Also something from the book is they tell you about funnerals if you were in a acedent or you died and you had your funerail in egypt you will need to have to fight these animals and people just to go to heaven the book is sad, scary, and interesting all at the same time the book is seriously interesting I want to read this book over and over again because it is a kind of book that teaches you things. Another thing is the book has juicy words and now I realize at the end it is really sad and also the book is really fun and you can lean a lot of things from it about egypt learning is really fun too. This is a question that I want to learn. how do people know how to make pyramids, and mummies that's my question to say I want to say I love this book I read when I was so that's why I picked this book it is fun.

    Who knew that an awful fiction series could redeem itself through its non-fiction outlet! This book is the "Research Guide" associated with the Magic Tree House book "Mummies in the Morning" which I will never read. My 8-year-old daughter has fallen in love with Egypt (yes!!!) and brought home this book from her school library.

I wanted to tell her!" Anyways, it's pretty solid. Gives an overview of ancient Egyptian life and artifacts that's appropriate for a young audience. It's a good starting point for someone wanting to know the basics, and at the end of the book it gives many resources in all different forms of media if you want to learn more. I read the book in, you know, half an hour, and I told my daughter I liked it much more than the normal books. She said, "Yeah, I like the Research Guides better, too." That is excellent, my young reader. I'm not sure yet if the Research Guides justify the existence of the Magic Tree House series, and Mary Pope Osborne is still on my Strongly Dislike list. But this book is pretty solid.
