Has some good, basic information about ancient Rome and illustrations to share with the Latin students.
For beginner readers, this is a nice book for anyone interested in ancient Rome and the people and places that it entailed. Filled with wonderful illustrations, the reader will learn how Rome came to be and the eventual downfall that took it. A nice book for anyone's collection.
