i love these books

we bought this book for a book report for our 3rd grader. they were about to start a unit on ancient rome and she chose this book to do a book report on and make a game about in preparation for their lesson. she loved the book, there were great illustrations depicting many aspects of roman life - military, architecture, etc. there was also a lot of great trivia and an intro to latin roots of words. she ended up making a jeopardy game based on the book and there was plenty of material. the format is easy to understand and a very kid-friendly approach to history.

My daughter reads all the fact trackers, she likes them better than the story books they go along with.

My 3rd Grade child used this extensively to support her learning on their study of Rome. She just had to have it - I was suspicious it would end up on the shelf unused. She carried back and forth to school for the entire time they studied Rome. She used it to write her paper and riddle us with facts.

I picked up this book to find out more about Rome and it actually helped as I went to the exhibit on Pompeii. It helped me understand life as it was in that time period and the book was educational from my viewpoint.
