MultiCultural Review - Kathryn Mora

"Struggling and reluctant middle grade readers will be drawn into the “Choose Your Own Adventure”- style series, but with multiple shorter scenarios. When one path is finished, the reader can choose to go back and read the other for another adventure. Ancient Egypt opens up with “About Your Adventure,” which helps to establish what the reader is about to experience, events that actually happened to real people. Readers can travel to Giza and join the pyramid builders in 2550 BCE or maybe join Queen Cleopatra and Mark Antony, or the battle of the Roman dictator Octavian in 31 BCE and more. The Civil Rights Movement starts in the late 1950s, and the author sets the scene to show that African Americans didn’t have the same rights as other Americans, especially in the South. Will the participant on this journey help desegregate bus lines as a Freedom Rider or get involved in the Project C protests in Birmingham, Alabama? No matter what choice the reader makes, he or she will learn a lot about the struggle for equal rights. Included in this series is a timeline, books for further reading, Internet sites, a glossary, and an index. Other features include a controlled vocabulary, short and direct sentence structure, precise photo-text matches to aid comprehension, and clear chapter headings." - MultiCultural Review

"Chapter one sets the scene, but as you read on you get to choose the path the story will follow. In each book, the story is enhanced with photos, illustrations, and historical facts. A fun, interactive way to make history come alive." - Mt. Diablo Unified School District

Library Media Connection - Kendra Allison Molen, Library Media Specialist, Moorefield Intermediate School,

"The freedom to choose your path in history awaits in this new series. Each book in the series begins with an introduction to the specific era. At the end of the first chapter readers are presented with three story paths. The story paths divide the era into even more specific time periods. For example, you may choose to fight battles as a knight in the 1100s, explore life in a royal castle in the 1200s, or experience the terror of the Black Plague in the 1300s. Each story path immerses the reader in the time period and provides a variety of choices to make that personalize the experience. At the end of each path you may choose to return to follow another path or read the conclusion. The final chapter provides a concise overview of the era. The books are aesthetically pleasing with lightly tinted pages and a variety of interesting photos throughout. This series will support your history curriculum and be a wonderful asset for reluctant readers. Bibliography. Glossary. Timeline. Websites. Index. Recommended." - Library Media Connection

Children's Literature Comprehensive Database - Jody Little

"This book is part of the “You Choose” series from Capstone Press. Readers learn about three periods in Ancient Egypt: the age of the pyramid builders, the mummy makers, and Queen Cleopatra’s reign. By choosing the path that interests them, readers learn about the lives of people who actually lived in Ancient Egypt. They learn how the stones for the pyramids were chiseled and transported, or how the mummy tombs were painted and the bodies embalmed, or how Cleopatra and Mark Antony fought the Romans and ultimately killed themselves. The second-person view point allows the reader to feel like he or she is in the story. Sometimes the choices made lead to a happy life and other times they lead to death. Reading more than one adventure in a sitting may be confusing to some children. Teachers may enjoy using this book as a read-aloud, or assigning different adventures to groups of students. The book includes numerous colored illustrations and photographs as well as a time line of Ancient Egypt, Internet sites, glossary and index." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
