This is Serena's 3rd Biography Fair. After Princess Grace Kelly and Laura Ingalls Wilder, Serena has decided to pick someone from ancient history this year, given her recent obsession with the Greek and Roman gods. Cleopatra was a ton of fun to do - the last Pharaoh of Egypt, full of glam and drama and mystery!
There's a ton of great books in the library on this fascinating historical character:
Cleopatra: Discover the World of Cleopatra Through the Diary of Her Handmaid Nefret by Adele Geras
Cleopatra: "Serpent of the Nile" by Mary Fisk Pack
Everything Ancient Egypt by Crispin Boyer
Cleopatra: Egypt's Last and Greatest Queen by Susan Blackaby
Cleopatra by Haydn Middleton
Ancient Egypt: Tales of Gods and Pharaohs by Marcia Williams
hieroglyphic typewriter. Serena used it to make cartouche hieroglyphs of Cleopatra and the men in her life: Ptolemy XIII, Ptolemy XIV, Julius Caesar, and Mark Antony.
Serena enjoyed being in character as Cleopatra in her presentation, and Daddy seemed to equally enjoy his character as Julius Caesar.
