Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Begin elementary graders' introduction to the people, places and politics of Ancient Rome with Simon James' "See Through History" volume. His information-packed, two-page chapters will inspire and provide the basis for reports on a wide range of topics including life in the country, town, or provinces, food and dining, and government. When lifted, overlays among the illustrations allow peeks behind the walls of a townhouse, army fort, theater and baths.
