To go with Expedition Earth for Egypt:Prince of Egypt: Dreamworks Classics Collection - This was a little long for Cricket, and not a Magic Treehouse book. So I summarized once she started losing interest.
The Mystery of King Karfu - This was a perfect book for Cricket. It had enough about Egypt to be meaningful, but was also a storybook. She loved all the clues and the way it allowed her to also be an investigator.
Ancient Egypt - This was an educational and factual library find, which Cricket had no interest in at all.
Countdown to Thanksgiving - This book was a great math and seasonal add on. It reinforced the backwards counting we have been working on and Cricket enjoyed it.
Dolphins at Daybreak (Magic Tree House, No. 9) - If you have been following our blog you probably already know that I have a huge Jack and Annie fan on my hands, but this was her favorite story yet. I think the kids riding on the dolphins pushed it over the edge! We have been talking about submarines and pretending to go undersea ever since we read this one.
