Escape This Book! Tombs of Egypt
Escaping an Egyptian tomb is not easy and not an option for those buried there. To start, the reader chooses one of three paths. If being the top ruler of ancient Egypt appeals to their sense of adventure, that experience leads them through the Pharoah’s childhood including his lessons about making mummies and hieroglyphics. Just when you think the Pharoah’s story is over, the book leads you back several pages so that it seems like there is no path to the end. Finally, the reader reaches a path out of the tomb and to the end of the Pharoah’s story. There are still two stories to explore – take the role of an archeologist learning about discovering the mysteries of the pyramids and its tombs, or explore as one of the builders who spent many years with much hard work laboring to build these great, historic structures. By the time this book has been explored walking in the shoes of all three characters, having fun, drawing, folding, solving puzzles and mazes and even poking holes through pages to find codes, the reader has learned quite a bit about Egyptian history, its people and its architecture.
Reader, beware! Once you open this book, there is NO turning back. You will have THREE chances to escape this ancient Egyptian tomb. You must choose a path first:
Pharaoh: Want to be the top ruler of ancient Egypt? Choose this path and become one of history’s greatest pharaohs.
Pyramid worker: You’ve built some of the world’s most amazing monuments. Will that help you escape before being turned into a mummy?
Archaeologist: You make incredible discoveries, and you’re about to enter an ancient, hidden tomb . . . but can you discover a way out?
In this book series, the reader experiences and learns about historic events as a participant in a fictional story. These are books that contain activities, a narrative story, along with facts about the times, life and events depicted in each book. Readers will draw, make decisions and alter the books while working their way through each historically-based story. The “escaping” theme of these books adds an element of intrigue as there is no straightforward path through these stories. Depending on decisions the reader makes, they move back and forth between and through pages until their story eventually ends! This is a perfect way to make learning fun.
