Ancient Rome by Philip Steele

Steele, Philip Ancient Rome, 48 p. Kingfisher, 2009. $10.99. Take a quick tour through historic Rome.  With photos of historic places, some CGI and lots of well-executed recreations (they work so much better than poorly done drawings that you find in so many books), you get a great panoramic look at the empire at its peak.  Just enough information and lots of beautiful illustrations to hold a young student’s attention.
