'Want to Know: The Romans' by Suzan Boshouwers with illustrations by Veronica Nahmias is a non-fiction instructional picture book for very young readers. It's a very well done project.
The reader is taken through different phases of ancient Roman life. The pictures fold out on some pages. Objects in the pictures are labelled so that readers can discover what they were called. The reader learns about Roman soldiers, the marketplace and what home life looked like. Festivals and Roman gods find their place too.
The pictures are detailed and filled with all kinds of objects. They are pointed out with text. I really enjoyed this approach to teaching young children about an ancient culture.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Clavis Books and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
