Explore Ancient Rome! Review by Lisa Barthuly

Explore Ancient Rome! introduces children to ancient Rome and life at that time. This high-quality paperback teaches through hands-on projects, games, and fun facts, which my children love! 

Children learn about Roman homes, food, clothing, arts, what the children did for playtime, and more! Projects abound in this title! Learn to make an ancient scroll, make a tunic or shield, bake bread, or even host a Roman feast! The projects have easy-to-follow instructions and use common household items (making it easy on Mom and Dad too)!

We have used some of Nomad's titles to supplement our Tapestry of Grace curriculum, and the children also use them for just plain old fun learning. Whether they are reading for pleasure or doing the fun projects (many of which they can do all on their own), my children love Nomad's titles as much as I do!

I would definitely recommend Explore Ancient Rome! Lots of learning disguised as fun!
