Talk about The World of the Roman Emperor

This may seem strange, but this book really appealed to my younger boys because of the inllustrations. They were very dramatic and almost masculine in flavor: a crowd assassinating Caesar, Antony's suicide, a bunch of men trying to wrestle an ox down to sacrifice it, pulling down the golden idols in the temple, etc. Not that they were overly gory or anything but just that they were drawings meant to get kids' attention. The book's format is a little like a DK book with two page spreads and lots of illustrations with captions, and I was a little concerned tht the amount of text would dissuade my 2nd and 3rd grader. But they plunged right in, to learn what all those drawings were about. I still think it isn't quite the most helpful for those younger ages, but it's hard to argue with a boy's interest. Personally, I did appreciate how the author included a page on Constantine (who is, for some reason, often deleted in Roman reference works), and a "Who's Who" page at the back which helps you keep the names of all the emperors straight.

An oldie, but a goodie.
