Mummies & their mysteries by Charlotte Wilcox

This informational text tied in very well with the ancient civilization unit in junior social studies.  The boys in my 5/6 class really enjoyed this text, even the most reluctant readers.  By breaking the book into chapters, the boys were able to work on creating a summary which they then shared with the rest of the group.  The book allowed for excellent discussion on informational text features easily lending itself to social studies or literacy.

  Reading ability: Soar to Success, Level 8

 Genre: informational/ non-fiction

 Who would like this book:reluctant readers, boys, those interested in history or ancient civilizations
