Short, sweet and to the point. An interesting counterpoint to Steiner
176. Spend the Day in Ancient Rome: Projects and Activities that bring the Past to Life by Linda Honan
Found this one sitting on an end cap at the library. We'll cover Ancient Rome Someday (6th grade I think), but it never hurts to find and write down a good resource. This one is okay. There's some interesting projects in it. It will probably merit another look when that particular block is much closer. Also need to note the author has written one for Ancient Egypt as well.
177. Chanticleer and the fox by Geoffrey Chaucer
Lovely book. One of the tales from Canterbury Tales. Lovely illustrations...kids liked this one a lot!
