Reviews

School Library Journal
“Six chapters with colorful titles begin with facts about the topic under several subheadings… the step-by-step directions are well written, and easy to follow..the activities are creative. The book is illustrated with humorous (but not realistic) black and white cartoon art …. It will be of interest to children and their teachers as well as homeschooling families.”

DIG Magazine
“Explore Ancient Rome! By Carmella Van Vleet offers a variety of projects, accompanied by explanatory history text, designed to stimulate readers' interest in this ancient culture. Among them are making an aqueduct, designing a villa, creating an oscillum and designing a theater mask.”
