Thanks for the link. It looks a bit below my kids' age level on first glance, but still might be helpful as a reference.

I am going to steal the pictures for sure and add them to our Mythology studies. I have books from D'Aulaire's Greek Myths to Edith Hamilton's 1st Edition Mythology !!

LOL it's not entirely factual, there are 4 creation stories and they leave ALOT out about Osiris, Isis, Set, and Nephthys. But at the same time what they left out is what many people would feel isn't child appropriate. It is nice how they present it though!

*don't mind me, I have studied the Egyptians for almost 26 years and I honor the pantheon.....that's one of those things where I know too much!*

I have tiny children, who love stuff like this. Plenty of time left for real study later.
