Sam

This book is just great, ideal for any young historian! I almost wish I was back in Primary School myself; a project on the Ancient Romans using a book like this would be easy. Packed full of relevant clearly written facts and information, supported by simple illustrations and humorous annotations, it makes for a great classroom resource. Written in clear comic sans font, using simple language, this book should be suitable as an independent read for most Year 3/4 children. The basic map and timeline include enough details to be relevant and informative without appearing overwhelming. The book has an easy to read contents page and each short chapter / section is clearly labelled and numbered; the addition of an index and glossary would make it even better. This book is one of a pair, the other is very similar in format and introduces the Ancient Egyptians. 64 pages / Ages 7-10 years / Reviewed by Sam Phillips, teacher.
