Queens of Egypt: Calliope World History For Young People
Vol. Two, Number 2, November/December, 1991. Cobblestone Publishing, New Hampshire.

This issue of the popular magazine for young people includes information on Hatshepsut, Nefertiti, the Macedonian queen Arsinoe II, and, of course, Cleopatra VII. Content on the importance of the worship of Isis is given as is, oddly, short bits of information on more modern famous Egyptian women who were, in fact, not queens. Activities using an "obelisk of words" to recall information, instruction on how to carve an Egyptian scarab, and the time line are adequate.
