Kingfisher Readers L3: Ancient Rome by Thea Feldman, Claire Llewellyn, Philip Steele


Kingfisher Readers L3: Ancient Rome by Thea Feldman, Claire Llewellyn, Philip Steele

Many of the things we have today, such as our language, our laws, our buildings and our cooking started in ancient Rome. This book introduces new readers to the history and culture of the Romans, including the architecture, games, clothing, and interesting aspects of daily life such as bathing, studying, and entertainment. The text introduces important new vocabulary--conquer, empire, mosaic--and is woven together with beautiful photographs and illustrations, which help readers get the context. A timeline, index, and glossary complete the book, and help build research skills and confidence in reading.



Accessible and engaging, with plenty of interest and repetition, and more variety of language and information than level 2. Text introduces a few more challenging words and a wider variety of tenses.

Guided Reading Levels: K, L

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!
