A recent library find: The Tomb of the Boy King: A True Story in Verse by John Frank. I haven't read it with Ramona yet, but I really enjoyed this poetic version of the discovery of King Tut's tomb. The illustrations are lovely, and the book is full of heiroglyphics for Ramona to try to decipher. The epilogue plays up "the curse" quite a bit, but that will afford us a great chance to discuss such things. It will be fun, too, to see where this little rabbit trail takes us.
Visit Random Noodling today for a great Robert Frost poem and the rest of the Friday round-up.
