Just had to add a few words about this book. It's designed for young children so is completely appropriate for 5 yrs and up (if not younger.) All illustrations are 'cartoon' type but very accurately depict life in Roman times (since we are studying that era currently we are familiar with such.) The Roman bath scene shows many men rome-ing about (sorry, couldn't resist) who are naked, however, only their buttocks show - again, in cartoon form. Very inoffensive. The Colosseum page shows a very tiny bit of blood under several very small, dead gladiators - all shown from a distance perspective. So please bear this in mind and don't bypass this book for concern of its appropriateness. We are conservative homeschoolers and highly approve of it. My 9 year-old daughter still loves to lift the flaps on books like these to discover what's beneath so clearly it appeals to a broad range of children.

A Kid's Review on March 8, 2009
This is a great book for a great deal. (For ten bucks, its so worth it) There is some really cool flaps that show you how the Romans lived. If your planning to buy it keep the following in mind.
1. It wouldn't be appropriate for little kids. By little I mean from newborn to probably about five year olds. 'cause the gladiator fights are a little bloody and the baths show people completely naked.
2.The flaps are really cool and can show things that wouldn't be expected.
3.It shows you things that the Romans did that wouldn't be allowed today or you'd be sent to prison or even be killed for.

The Roman book is really cool and my favorite part is the army page. I got it for Christmas this year.

this is the type of book that makes learning fun. It is like a comic book but with realistic drawings of people, their houses, their workplaces, roads, farms, and city layout.

This would be the perfect book to take on an airplane with a child between the ages of 5 and 12. There are so many small illustrations, in addition to the fun of trying to locate the tiny flaps, that this would keep a child occupied for quite a while and each page is constructed of cardboard so it is very durable.

This is one of the best books to explain Roman life and history to young kids. The illustrations are beautiful and under the flaps one can find out how things worked. Its also humorous (for example it points out a boy who is late for school!). Wonderful find!
