I really enjoyed this audiobook.

Well done by a charming narrator, interesting old tales from anti
quity, interspersed with an almost unforgettable tune, probably Arabic but seemingly old egyptian. I listened while in the kitchen and it was good fun, to go with the chores.

Interesting, But....

Stories from a land long lost. The recording needed more volume. All together worth the $3.00

Egyptian mythology fun for kids

My son and I enjoyed this audio a lot, suitable for younger children but interesting to me and to an older child. This was gentle enough it served as a bedtime listen. The stories were well-narrated and interspersed with music. If I could only pick one, I would slightly prefer Ancient Egypt: Glory of the Pharaohs, by David Angus, over this.
