Booklist (November 1, 2010 (Vol. 107, No. 5))
Grades 4-7. In the style of DK, the double-page spreads in the Navigators series are packed with high-gloss color photographs, digital imagery, maps, and cutaways. But readers will want to look past the glitz, as each title also offers a substantial overview of the topic, with gems of information not seen in similar books. Ancient Egypt opens with prominent pharaohs and continues with life at home, within a palace, and amidst the construction of a pyramid. Although it includes such typical subjects as religion, mummification, and tomb raiders, it also comprises female rulers, taxes, and extensive trading expeditions (which returned with giraffes, frankincense, myrrh trees, and other treasures). While fact boxes, definitions (a glossary is appended), and quotes from notable authors and texts add to the browsing appeal of both books, a concluding list of further resources helps make them a good first stop in the research process.
