Nile Crossing

By Katy Beebe, Illustrated by Sally Wern Comport (Eerdmans Books for Young Readers -2017)                                                                                                         Khepri lives in ancient Egypt, happily fishing alongside his father in the water of the Nile.

As he and his father travel to Thebes, Khepri must face his anxieties about starting school.>>> On the last pages, found explanation about “Writing and School in Ancient Egypt” and Glossary.
