More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - K. Meghan Robertson
As part of the "Ancients in their own Words" series, which includes books about Egyptians, Greeks, and Mesopotamians, this look at the Romans is laid out beautifully with vibrantly colored images paired with large, easy to read fonts. There are also great captions, "Did you know?" segments, and a glossary for new terms discovered on the information-packed pages. Despite a few typographical errors with words and dates, the series brings to life the civilizations of the past that shaped some aspects of our modern world, including authentic examples of writings on time-relevant media and other artifacts specific to the culture. Go beyond a basic understanding of Ancient Rome by reading—and viewing—inscriptions and artwork paired with translations and explanations of what each reveals about Roman life as it grew from its incipient stages as a monarchy then republic and lastly an empire until its fall from repeated invasions in the late 400s CE. Meet famous, infamous, and influential members of Roman society and those of barbarian tribes with whom the Romans came in contact as they expanded their empire. This book includes mention of several key wars and battles, Teutoburger Forest with Varus. [Germanic peoples] However, military brilliance was not the only contributor to Rome's success, so you will also encounter stories of bravery and selfless service of ordinary men. There is also detail and images of other aspects of life such as food, restaurants, graffiti particularly pertaining to elections, art, religion including the onset of Christianity, Pompeii, memorials, and of course entertainment such as gladiators.

VOYA - Suanne Roush
The series Ancients in Their Own Words falls somewhere between the DK Eyewitness series and an encyclopedia in scope. Each library-bound book is set up the same way, with sections that are no longer than five pages and are heavily illustrated, most in color. All have brief background information, which often ends abruptly, as though it is an abridgment of a larger piece. The background information is followed by a picture and translation of a tablet, stela, inscription, and so forth that is more specific to an individual, many of them historically unknown. While interesting, this makes the series less useful for upper grades than it would have been if historically known persons had been used, or if the entire series were based on the daily lives of "everyday" people. Every section includes "What Does It Mean?" and "Did You Know," although the placement of the latter is often on a different page than the item about which it gives additional information. Also included in each volume is a table of contents, index, glossary, time line, and books and websites for further information. The websites may date the books, but all seem to be established sites, such as the British Museum, Metropolitan Museum, History for Kids, and PBS. Upper elementary, middle school, and reluctant readers will be drawn to the series due to the illustrations and brief text; high school students interested in reading everything about a subject or something that will not take long to read may be drawn to the series as well, though it should not be used as a primary source of information.
