Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Danielle Williams
The impact of the Roman Empire on the Western world is immeasurable. Many of the words and inventions from the Roman era are still in use today, and their sociopolitical traditions still deeply influence politics and society throughout the world. A brief introduction is accompanied by a craft project that allows children to delve deeper into Roman culture and traditions. Topics range from geography and architecture to language and family life. Children are offered information about how to make Roman paper sandals, similar to sandals that Roman soldiers wore, as well as a lucky bulla, worn by children to protect them and ensure long life. Step-by-step instructions accompany each craft project; illustrations offer additional details and serve as colorful references about each particular topic being discussed. A notes page at the end of the text offers useful tools to parents and teachers, additional sources to consult, and tips for additional activities that can be included in lesson plans. This text is part of the "Hands-on History" series. Reviewer: Danielle Williams
