    One thought on “Boy of the Pyramids: A Mystery of Ancient Egypt”

    1. My 7-year-old gave this 5/5. We read it as part of our study of ancient Egypt. He enjoyed the mystery of it. Well-told and a good read-aloud. Will read it again when my girls are older (my 5-year-old listened for some and enjoyed, but was off playing on her own for other parts so she didn't get the whole story)

    2. I knew this was a children's book, but the target audience was younger than I expected. It's a nice little story and older kids can pick up a few tidbits of Ancient Egyptian history in the reading, but it's better read aloud to younger kids ( ages 5 - 10) and the olders just reading it themselves.

    3. A great living book. It gives another view of ancient Egypt, this time from an Egyptian noble family. After enjoying the stories of Moses and Joseph repeatedly, my older girl is interested in this story. We are still reading the story together, as a read-aloud, but I already went ahead and finished it.

    4. I wasn't going to read this book. I was simply going to let my daughter read it for her history lessons. However, after reading a paragraph for her dictation, I became interested. This was a shorter book and I was able to read it in just a few hours, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    5. I read this in third or fourth grade, enjoyed it and then mostly forgot about it. Then lo and behold, I discovered it again. Originally published in 1950, it was reissued in 2007. And it has held up wonderfully.Oserkaf, called Kaffe, is a ten-year-old boy who lives in ancient Egypt, in the time of the great Pharaoh Khufu. Kaffe's father, Socharis, is a great nobleman, a personal friend of Khufu's from childhood and now in charge of the making of the fine objects Khufu will be putting in the grea [...]

    6. We read this for history. It was a good book that brought out the different classes in Egyptian society and also the different agricultural seasons and the work involved in planting and harvesting crops around the Nile. It was also a nice mystery too. My boys enjoyed the story and remembered a lot of thee details afterwards.

    7. It was good for a book that gives lots of info about ancient Egypt without feelings like you're learning anything. However, in the end the pharaoh gives the boy anything he wants, and he doesn't choose to free his slave (also his best friend!). That bothered me.

    8. This is a story of a young egyptian noble during the time of Pharoah rule. A story that allows children to connect to this time and become attached with characters instead of dry facts. It totally enriched our study on ancient Egypt.

    9. I really shouldn't rate this, but Isaiah's read it about 6 times this year. My goal is to read it this summer before Aaron gets to it!
