8 Years

We love eight-year-olds! They’re just the right age for all kinds of fun. They still love the pretend play they’ve been enjoying for years, yet they’re also ready to move ahead into more advanced toys and learning. All of these toys and activities will appeal to their natural sense of fun and wonder.

By Emily Sands

Who can resist the allure of ancient Egypt - and the thrill of uncovering mysteries that have lain hidden for thousands of years? Not the feisty Miss Emily Sands, who in 1926, 4 years after the discovery of King Tut's tomb, led an expedition up the Nile in search of the tomb of the god Osiris. Alas, Miss Sands and crew soon vanished into the desert, never to be seen again. But luckily, her keen observations live on in the form of a lovingly kept journal, full of drawings, photographs, booklets, foldout maps, postcards, and many other intriguing samples.

Here are just a few of Egyptology's special features:

  • An extravagantly gilded cover, featuring a raised Horus hawk encrusted with 3 "gems"
  • A playable game of Senet (ancient Egyptian checkers) including board, pieces, original-style dice, and rules
  • A souvenir booklet showing how to read simple hieroglyphs
  • A scrap of textured "mummy cloth"
  • A facsimile of the gilded mummy mask of King Tut
  • A gilded eye-of-Horus amulet with a "jewel" at the end

Rich with information about life in ancient Egypt and peppered with Miss Sands' lively narration, Egyptology concludes with a letter from the former Keeper of Antiquities at the British Museum, explaining which parts of this unique tale may be accepted as fact, which are guided by legend, and which reflect the author's delightful sense of fancy.

Hardcover containing 28 pages.
