If You Were Me and Lived in Egypt by Carole P. Roman
This has to be my favorite young children's series. In each book, we discover a different part of the world. More recently, Roman has added different eras as well. This series is fabulously entertaining while at the same time giving you a vast look at different cultures.
In this book, we're taken to Egypt. We learn everything from history to popular names and foods. There are pronunciation keys to help out with some of the more foreign sounding words, with an extensive pronunciation guide at the back. There's a colorful map at the very beginning.
Each page has a good solid paragraph. It's at about the reading level of the average second-grader, but older children will also enjoy the information. Younger readers would need this read to them, but the pictures will be more than enough to keep them entertained as you take them on a journey far away.
