You Wouldn't Want to be a Pyramid Builder: A Hazardous Job You'd Rather Not Have by Jacqueline Morley

Posted by DONDRA DECKER on 4/24/2019

  This nonfiction book is packed with information about how pyramids are built.  The information is organized into topics, such as "Pulling Your Weight"  (literally, and how humans got those large stones to where they need to be); "Home Comforts" (what daily life was like for ancient Egyptians) and "Wrapping Up the Pharoah"  (some information on the process).  There are interesting "Handy Hints" in each section, which are fun facts.  

  The book is written as if the author is talking to you, the reader, and giving you information on how life works for an ancient Egyptian.  The illustrations are cartoon-like drawings, which make it fun.  

  I found this to be an interesting read, which gives factual information in a fun way.
