Despite her lack of enthusiasm in the museum, she really enjoyed the book that I picked up from the library hold on our return. How the Sphinx Got to the Museum by Jessie Hartland is creatively written and illustrated and can be read by children of different ages. Younger kids will enjoy a cumulative story line, older readers will appreciate introduction to different trades related to art and archaeology as well as some new vocabulary. They will learn a tragic story of an artifact itself – the story that has a happy end. We highly recommend this book and will be looking for its companion – How the Dinosaur Got to the Museum.
Anna wasn’t interested in being photographed next to the Sphinx. At that point she longed to get out of Egyptian section and find “real art”. It also doesn’t look good for my plans to spend more time “in Egypt” in August since we got next Top Secret package, and now Anna can’t wait to go to Australia. Oh well, hopefully we will have more luck a few years down the road.
In the meantime I will share our best posts: from previous virtual trips to Egypt:
