Kids can learn to read and write with hieroglyphs in the spiral-bound Write Like an Ancient Egyptian! with art from the Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection. A hieroglyphic alphabet chart shows the symbols that correspond with each letter sound, and a bound-in plastic stencil page helps kids draw those symbols. The directions are then followed by word finds, crossword puzzles and match games, for extra practice. Kids can use 12 sheets of stationery (with a decoder guide on the back of each sheet) to send messages to friends plus three pages of stickers to seal their messages.
