The NerdBug read Bill and Pete Go Down the Nile as part of his literature reading on Egypt. It paralleled the history reading in Chapter 2 of SOTW.
This was a pleasant little book where Bill the crocodile goes to school, which consists of traveling the Nile. We learn about the Sphinx, mummies and Isis. Then he saves the Isis jewel from a bad guy. All this history tied together in a great story made it very memorable to my 1st grader. He now thinks sarcophagus is a normal word to use.
I personally enjoyed the book as did my son. I will be using this again with my other kids!
