Great informative book.

"really interesting"

This is a really interesting book. It is a guide book and also an activity book for children, which covers aspects of life in Ancient Rome, from gladiatorial battles to games the children played. It is a companion book to the adult version travel guide through the British Museum. It takes children around the various rooms at the museum showing specific items of interest that children may like such as masks, swords etc. It also explains how some of our words came into being. It is especially good at including lots of activities for children such as how to make a copy of a mask that is in the museum. But above all, it does this showing where in the Bible these things are mentioned and how the people of Jesus’ time would have understand the use of the illustrations for example lamps or swords. I think most children would learn a lot from the book yet most importantly enjoy while learning. GoodBookStall Review - Barbara Stoneham - 17/06/09
