Explore 360 -The Tomb of Tutankhamun Review by Renita Bentz

Explore 360 -The Tomb of Tutankhamun is a full on adventure! Explore the mysteries of King Tutankhamun, the young Egyptian pharaoh affectionately called “King Tut”, in this full-color, 48 page hardcover book. But, that’s not all - you can navigate his tomb on your own with the ultra-real 3D graphics found in the free TutTomb 360 App! 

The app is available free from the Apple App Store or Android App from Google Play. The app contains a built in gyroscope feature so you can rotate 360 degrees to explore King Tut’s tomb. Just tap artifacts in the app and view them from any direction.

This book and app make the perfect adventure into the world of Egyptian mummies, gods and life in the Valley of Kings. 

The book is filled with pictures and facts that immerse you in the life and times of the ancient Egyptian pharaohs. You also meet the great adventurer, Howard Carter, who discovered Tut’s tomb in the early 1920’s, one of archeology’s greatest finds.

Designed for ages 8-14, my elementary age children were enthralled with this easy to read book. They could not put it down. I was equally captured by it. The high quality pages feature stunning photographs with hundreds of full color and black and white images throughout the book. From life in Egypt to the exciting discovery by Howard Carter, this book pulls you deep into this fascinating world with interesting facts on every page.

The App provides a fun way to explore more. My children were intuitively able to navigate through the winding paths inside the pyramid to “discover” King Tut for themselves.  My age was showing, because my children had to show me how the app worked!

I highly recommend this book as an addition to your ancient Egypt studies, or a perfect choice for a quick adventure.
