What is your favorite book on Roman history that could be a read aloud


Recommended Posts

Looking for a read aloud for my kids, paarticularly my older, on Roman history. Have downloaded a few free old books, and they are all pretty dry. Ideas appreciated.


ETA: I own Augustus Caesar's World by Genevieve Foster which i bought ages ago and haven;t read. Good place to start?

Augustus Caesar's World is like SOTW at a higher reading level. It also covers what's happening all over the world at the same time.


Famous Men of Rome could work for those ages. Or In Search of a Homeland: The Story of the Aeneid (Penelope Lively). Geraldine McCaughrean wrote a nice collection of Roman myths, too.
