The title says it all. Students interested in this topic will not think it is gross at all. When I think of everything children are exposed to, this is relatively tame. In fact, I plan on using the book with an entire class. It is informational and relates to life science, geography, cultures, careers, and medicine. One very important point, that other reviewers failed to mention, is that the author brings up ethical questions about the "finds". Questions pertaining to the ethical treatment of human remains, ownership of remains, and studies of remains are woven throughout the text. Answers to these ethical questions are for the reader to determine. Many pictures with captions prove motivational and add interest. A perfect book to get students thinking! A writing piece by students based on this information and some research would easily meet Common Core Standards.

Mummies, Bones, and Body Parts, by Charlotte Wilcox, is not a good book to read before lunch. I give this book 3and ½ stars because it was pretty good. It's about mummies and how they are found. It also tells how they were prepared for burial, and thousands of years later, where and why they were found or discovered.
This book is an informational text, that means it can teach you things. I like learning about mummies and how they are found. Also, I like learning new things all the time.
I don't think the author could have done anything better. I thought it was good just the way it is.
When reading this book you can tell the author wrote this book because she has a passion for Egyptian after life. Also I think she wanted other people to get excited about what she likes.

Perfect for the prepubscent boy :) The pictures are a bit morbid, but the text is eductional and the author is very respectful of the customs of ancient people.

I would recommend looking over this book first, with your specific child in mind, before just handing it over.

This book is very interesting but it is also very gory. It is a nonfiction picture book that is appropriate for young adult readers. Every image has a description of the picture that captures your attention, and depending on your personal interest, leads the reader to the narrative on the same page.
