Amber WarnerEDU 366Kristina McBean4.26.2016.Completed Annotated Bibliography Picture Books # 1:Lewis, A. & Gaff, J. (2003). Tutankhamun, the boy king. OH.Intended Audience:Kids, ages 4-8.Genre:Historical/EducationalThis beautifully drawn cultural picture book provides a close look into King Tut’s life as a child. From a series of books called “The Kids Who Ruled” this book shows King Tut’s life as a child. The brightly colored images that go along with detailed text give insight into what Tutankhamun’s life was like. The book covers everything from religious customs, Tutankhamun’s accomplishments as a ruler, to even popular fashion in Egypt during his rule. The book not only provides an intimateversion of a ruler’s life but teaches Egyptian culture and customs. Children and adult could both learn from this book, as it’s a new and interesting way to learn about a historical leader and their culture. I found the book to be informative and fairly simple. For a child, I think this would be a great way to teach them about history-the simply drawn but vibrant images make the content more appealing and the text is highly educational. The book is written by two authors: Anthony Lewis and Jackie Gaff, who both seem to have written other picture books. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I think it's a very educational book that teaches important aspects of culture and history, and think it could be very useful for children in a classroom.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
