Synopsis

Ancient Rome by Gillian Evans

Each title in the Cultural Atlas for Young People series aims to provide young readers with detailed information on a period in history. Special feature spreads in colour are devoted to large-scale reconstructions of significant episodes and events, while others focus on centres of civilization which can still be visited today. Equal emphasis is given to political and social history, illustrated with charts and chronologies. This text tells the story of the rise of ancient Rome, from a tiny cluster of villages to an empire that ruled the Western world. Maps interspersed with double-page feature spreads illustrate all aspects of this great civilization, from language and art to religion. Other subjects discussed include the war with Hannibal, the rise of Julius Caesar, life in Pompeii, Roman Britain, Roman architecture, technology and the decline of the Roman empire.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
