School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 4-6–Clean layouts and bright color illustrations and photos of period art and artifacts add significantly to these introductions. Each book is divided into 11 chapter spreads that provide a couple of opening sentences and two long paragraphs of large-size text about subjects such as soldiers and slaves (Jobs) and gladiator fights and theater (Sports). Paragraph-length sidebars discuss Roman people and period objects or excerpt primary sources. While their topics are widely covered in extant literature, these books are attractive enough to appeal to both browsers and report writers.
