Book Review: How the Sphinx Got to the Museum
“How The Sphinx Got to the Museum” is both written and illustrated by Jessie Hartland.
Follow the journey of the sphinx from the female pharaoh, that order its creation to guard her palace, to its current home in the Egypt section of the museum. In between it was carefully designed, sculpted, smashed up and then buried, rediscovered and carefully put back together.
Lots of little dramas and you learn who plays each and every role, as they do their job in bringing the Sphinx to the Museum.
This book isn’t just filled with fun facts about the Sphinx but it helps you see all kinds of different jobs you could have if you worked in a museum. (It also includes a few jobs you could have had thousands of years ago if you worked for a pharaoh. I think the new jobs are a bit better.)
The repetition is cool, but don’t ever skip that part, because it changes a little bit, every single time.
The next time you go to any museum, you might look at things a little bit differently, thanks to this book.
You can buy the book here at Barnes and Noble.
