What a interesting way to engage the reader. By using photos of the real artifact and combining objects you can feel really got my boys attention.
Tickle Tut’s Toes is a great book to teach the little ones (and us big ones) about Egyptian history, from King Tut’s coffin, to a mummified Crocodile, this book has some really cool stuff in it.
Tut’s Toes raised a lot of questions in the boys mind and he asked a lot of me to answer them, luckily the answers are provided in the back of the book. I think I learned as much as he did reading this book.
The coolest part of the book is how my son would touch the pictures and feel the different textures and ask about the artifact and why it feels like that.
To me, these kinds of books offer the best learning learning experience, because they engage the reader and gets them to ask questions, which seems to be a great way to teach and learn.
