    One thought on “We're Sailing Down the Nile: A Journey Through Egypt”

    1. I was a bit hestitant to buy this book because the content on many of the pages looked rather thin, even for the recommended age range, but I was pleasantly surprised when the book arrived.  In We're Sailing Down the Nile, several friends travel through modern Egypt from Aswan to Cairo, commenting on the sights along the way in lovely little rhymes. The illustrations in this book are beautiful.  I thought that the book would only appeal to my preschool aged son and his toddler brother, but eve [...]

    2. We’re Sailing Down the Nile begins with a rhyme about sailing down the River Nile in Egypt. Each page features a different destination along the River Nile i.e. Cairo, Abu Simbel, and the Valley of the Kings. The last pages of the book act as an educational resource and provide information and facts including Egyptian history, Gods & Goddesses and Life as an Ancient Egyptian. The book is beautifully and carefully illustrated with lots of bright colours and interesting pictures, as is typic [...]

    3. We borrowed this book for Classical Conversations Cycle 1.I really enjoy finding books that are kids' stories but also include things from the real world! Our kids, ages 6, 4 and 2, really liked this book. The youngest liked the bright colors and the illustrations, while the older two were pointing out things like pyramids and asking questions about things in the various scenes.This was a great way to introduce them to Egypt, the land and some of its history, by way of the famous Nile river.

    4. I must have a very curious child, because he also has discovered a love of Egypt. My parents bought him this book as a birthday present and we found the colors and pictures amazing. We got to tour Egypt in a fun way that was easy for a child to understand. The Pyramids and Mummuies are fascinating for a child, yet there were many facts and educational experiences througout the text. This book would make a wonderful addition to literacy and social studies lessons for young children.

    5. This book explains how sailing down the Nile, there are many things to explore and see! There's lots of history that the book shows, such as the Sphinx, King Tut's tomb, Kitchener's Island. They even go through some of the museums as well. This is definitely a book to read if you've got children who have never seen parts of Egypt and the Nile.

    6. I read this story to my reception class last week to link their literacy lessons to their topic of the week on 'hot and cold'A group of friends travel down the River Nile, each friend taking turns to talk about key places they have visited. I found this book to be a great start for children to develop ideas for creative writing relating to hot and cold.

    7. This book has so much to look at, the illustrations are bright and interesting. Would make an excellent choice to accompany a lesson on Egypt for early elementary students. This would also be great to also give examples of rhyming text. The end of the book has information about Ancient Egypt and Gods, and about the different monuments.

    8. This is a rare find, a beautifully illustrated picture book that can serve as an information book too. This is on par with Pam Munoz Ryan's Our California. A simple text resembling the flow of the river takes the reader to places along the Nile. The back of the book includes factual information such as a brief history, the names of gods and goddesses etc.

    9. Colorful and entertaining as well as the usual high quality, informative text you always find with Barefoot Books. I've added this to my "Africa" collection! As always, you can find this and all other Barefoot Books on my website.

    10. The travel portion appears to be for a small child, however the background info appears for an older child. That portion is much better.

    11. I love it, it's very Egypt-y. I have seen Rosetta Stone and mummies and a small Sphinx at crystal palace. But no pyramids.I want to go on a river boat.

    12. It was a bit advanced but they are learning about rhyming in class so this book was perfect. We've watch show on the pyramids so she liked seeming those too.

    13. Visit seven exciting destinations in Ancient Egypt, read about Egyptian history, and get to know about the monuments in this excellent book!

    14. Very colorful and full of information with rhymes. Made learning about Egypt interesting to a 7 year old boy.
