Press reviews

This beautifully illustrated picture book captures the essence of ancient Egypt in a simple and interesting way that new and pre-readers will love.
All That Women Want
I can see how a child learning to read would find these two good books. The pages are wonderfully illustrated and the words simple enough for early readers to build their confidence. I like how, for older children, there are loads of things that can be done with these books to extend learning and lots of talking points to explore.
Let them be small
In Egyptian Times is one of the best early history books I’ve found for a two year old.
