In Caesar's Rome with Cicero

Leoni, Christina. In Caesar's Rome with Cicero. Marshall Cavendish: 2009. ISBN: 9780761443285.

This fictional book is an interesting story about two siblings, brother and sister, that take a family vacation to Rome. Little did they know that it would be one they would never forget. While sightseeing, the two find a strange man dresssed in white draping clothes. When they take a second look at him, they find themselves in ancient Rome! The man, Cicero, is kind and shows them all of Rome; more than they ever imagined they would see! This book is full of facts and gives the reader a look into history. This fascinating book is a fun and exciting way to learn more about ancient Rome and the way of life back then. The storyline kept me interested in the book instead of just naming fact after fact. I also enjoyed the illustrating very much because they show the reader what life would have looked like back then.
