Half and Half Series

I love the idea of readers that are also educational. These books have a story in the first half of the book, followed by an educational fact section in the second half; hence the series name. According to the publisher, Level 1 is for grades 1-3; Level 2 is for grades 2-4; Level 3 is for grades 3-5. The sample I saw was The Time of the Pharaohs. It had a story about a girl in ancient Egypt, followed by explanations of Egyptian history, customs, religion, hieroglyphs, and pyramids. The book also had some photographs of ancient ruins, a couple pages of interesting questions and answers, instructions for making a pharaoh's headdress, and a glossary. 45 pgs, pb ~ Caryl
