Egyptology: The Coloring Book - Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Candlewick Press.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Book Overview:

Who can resist the allure of ancient Egypt — and the thrill of exploring mysteries that lay hidden for thousands of years? Now dedicated Egyptologists and avid coloring fans alike can put pencil or marker to the page and bring extraordinary treasures to life. The images found within include hieroglyphs, pyramids, artifacts, statuary, and mummy masks such as those discovered inside the tomb of King Tut himself.

The best-selling ’Ology phenomenon meets the coloring book craze!

My Review:

Art and history combine with this book based on the facsimile of a journal supposedly written in 1926 by Egyptologist Emily Sands.

I find Egyptian history fascinating and enjoyed reading the interesting notes written within the pages.  Emily, the Egyptologist, tells of discoveries and things she learned while exploring Egypt, including the fact that ancient Egyptians appeared to have no desire to travel to foreign parts.  The left side of each page is the journal writings in typed form, with the date included.  The right side of each page is illustrations that you can color, including hieroglyphics, artifacts, mummies, and more.  I've used colored pencils to draw on the pages so far, so I can't vouch if markers will bleed through or not.  Egyptology: The Coloring Book is still an interesting read, even if you don't want to color in it.

Win It!

One person will win Egyptology:  The Coloring Book.

"Leave a comment on this blog post: If you could go back in time, what era or period would you like to visit?" The 18th century, because men should always wear knee-britches and embroidered vests.
