So You Think You've Got It Bad? a Kid's Life in Ancient Egypt
About this book A kid's life in ancient Egypt might sound like fun with all the cool pyramids and glorious sunny weather, but it was actually rather tough! In this hilarious book, written by award-winning author Chae Strathie, children will learn exactly how difficult life really was, from dodging Deathstalker scorpions and cleaning up cow dung, to fetching water from the well, eating roasted hedgehog and being slammed in the stocks for being naughty at school! Probably the first book about ancient Egypt that involves bubble wrap and skateboards!
Reviews from Around the World It is a very good book where it shows the different lifestyle of a child in a very different country. It gives much exposure not only to my child but to myself, the parent as well. My child now understands the hardship of living in a harsh environment where survival skills are vital. It shares the values or appreciation and empathy.
