Life in ancient Egypt was considered so perfect, in fact, that the Egyptian afterlife was imagined as an eternal continuation of life on earth. Slaves in Egypt were either criminals, those who could not pay their debts, or captives from foreign military campaigns. Sports, games, reading, festivals, and time with one's friends and family were as much a part of Egyptian life as toil in farming the land or erecting monuments and temples.

I got this book to read with a 10 year who picked as one of his required "reads" for the school year. It had alot of facts and lots of pictures. I thought it was a little easy for a 10 year old however. I would say 8 or maybe 9 would be a better age group.
