We were at the library today and went and looked up what they had with the keyword "Egypt" and I found this:

(Here's hoping I got the Amazon tag to work.)

This is really neat.  It (almost) makes me wish I had a smaller child for whom I could buy it.

It's a little too old for my weester, but.  I flipped through it, and it's a decent rendition of the Heliopolitan cosmogony.  It even managed to bowdlerise the sex without ruining the myth. :}

You do know now that if I get the job interview I'm hoping for, I now have an idea of what book to use if they ask me for a story time demo?

(As Darkhawk knows, but other folks don't: one of my current prospects for a job is a youth services librarian position. I've got another stage to get through before interviews, though.)

I just bought this book for my son for Christmas. It is beautifully illustrated and a great rendition of (one of) the (many) creation myth(s)

Thank you for sharing. It looks beautiful, and I'm always on the lookout for more pagan kid's books to replace the holes in my collection. Smiley

I've read it.  At one point I was in the library doing some pretty heavy research. Then I got distracted and  wandered into the children's section.  I randomly picked up that book.  My reaction was "Oh, so that's the stuff that inspired me to be here in the first place."

I want to get it because it's pretty in case I ever have a kid.

Pssst...if anyone would be willing to write the text, my sister has been looking for children's stories that she can illustrate.  She's a traditional illustration major at the Academy of Art of San Francisco, and is looking to add more stuff to her portfolio as she's graduating soon.  Post here or contact me if you're interested.  I bet we could use an online program that I've used before to actually make it available for distribution at a fair price.
