Grade 3-6-This oversized picture book takes readers on a journey along the Nile River, showing how people have lived along its banks at various points throughout history. A useful map accompanied by a brief introduction explains the types of terrain along the way and prepares readers for their tour. The first spread shows the early exploration of the river in the mid 1800s at its source-the Ripon Falls, and subsequent spreads are devoted to sites along its 4350-mile path to the Mediterranean Sea. Readers are introduced to the Sudd swampland in A.D. 62, Khartoum circa 1840, Abu Simbel in the present day, and the funeral of King Khufu at Giza in 2500 B.C. Students are encouraged to study the detailed, extensive pictures to find a pelican as well as other items, described in the text bordering each page. The use of colorful adjectives in the short paragraph on each spread creates word pictures; and what isn't written is depicted through the large, comprehensive drawings that portray the hustle and bustle of life and civilization along the Nile. Animals, people, and significant items are labeled. While this handsome book will be of minimal use for report writers, recreational readers will spend hours poring over it.
