Review: This is a great informational book that teaches about mummies. There are pictures of real and fake artifacts and mummies. This is a great beginning readers chapter book.

Summary: This book is all about mummies and the history behind them. Each page is filled with information and pictures of

how to make a mummy, people from the past, the mummies curse, and different types of mummies.

Argument: I liked reading this book and looking at the pictures. I have learned about mummies in elementary school, but this book was filled with information that I have not heard about before. I learned how Egyptians made mummies and the process that they went through.
I think the main purpose of this story is to teach children about Egyptian mummies. Children seem to enjoy books about history and interesting topics like this.
