Unfolding Journeys - Secrets of the Nile is an interesting book which has an intriguing format. It folds out into a long thin map of the Nile. It is packed full of 55 facts about the Nile with everything from "the valley of the kings" to "the rosetta stone". One side of the book has a map of the Nile with all the different facts and a little bit about each fact and on the reverse just find the number of the fact that you want and you can find more information on it. All in all Unfolding Journeys - Secrets of the Nile is a very interesting book packed full of facts about Egypt and the Nile.

I loved learning about the Rosetta Stone the most as it was interesting and new information to me. I enjoyed telling my mummy and daddy facts about Egypt. 

I think lots of children will like this book because it's colourful, exciting and new.

I can't wait to take it to school for my show and tell

I am so pleased that we won this book. Caitlin opened it as soon as she got home from school and devoured it!
It is fun beause it opens out to reveal a map with 55 key features and facts about The Nile which are written in 'child-speak' and have illustrations to suooort them. On the reverse the imformation about these 55 points is expanded upon to take learning further.
This is a superb resource for a classroom, school, library or for home.

An absolute superb book for learning about the Nile. Beautifully presented and in a fun way, with the Nile folding out in front of you. Lots of information, my daughter and I both really enjoyed reading this. On another note, the pull out Nile makes for a great play mat for my little ponies

This is an absolutely beautiful non fiction book, which when folded out is a huge map of the Nile! Plenty of interesting points (55!) are drawn and written about along the Nile.  For example the Edfu temple, the Al Quiseir Fort, fava beans, camel rides and King Khufu's boat! On the back there is more information about each point, which is very informative.  Any child interested in Egypt would love this, and it would be a particularly wonderful piece to use in a classroom display for any teacher.  Definitely worth 5 stars!

I like this book as I really like books about places.  We did a river topic at school so I knew a little bit about the Nile but I know lots more now.  The book unfolds into a long page and there are lots of facts about the Nile all along the page.  It is very brightly coloured and very interesting.  I think anyone who likes to learn about different places would like to read tis book.

It was fun the way the book opened out into a big map. I found it awkward to manage finding the facts from front to back because of the way the book was laid out. I would have preferred it in a normall book format.
