Ancient Egyptian culture was very rich and diverse. Like other ancient civilizations, Egypt’s mythology explained the universe and taught morality. This booklet includes 6 favorite myths retold with color illustrations to show 11 of the Gods and Goddesses. (This PDF file includes a second version with gray scale images to make printing easier.)

Creation – This story explains how the universe began, how the main Deities were related, and why the calendar has 365 days in a year.

Bloodbath – This tale is about how the sun God decided to punish humans by destroying them. (There is mention of beer in this story.)

Lost Cat – In this story, a Goddess runs away from Egypt, but she gets homesick and returns.

The First Mummy – Mummification was extremely important to the ancient Egyptians, and this tale recounts how and why the first mummy was made.

Family Feuding – An uncle and his nephew fought over who was the rightful pharaoh of Egypt in this narrative.
