Publisher's Description

Parades, gladiator games, tunic weaving, and coin making!
Anything can happen when you spend the day in ancient Rome!
Find out what life was like almost two thousand years ago during the height of the Roman Empire. As Rome celebrates its annual Games, you'll spend the day with a family, just back from their own summer vacation. Join ten-year-old Marcus for the fabulous parade and the athletes' contest in the Colosseum. Enjoy a pantomime at the theater with his twelve-year-old sister Julia, and watch their father, Senator Julius, as he speaks in the city's forum. Top the day off with an exciting chariot race at the circus. Celebrate the history of ancient Rome with creative and fun-filled activities! Turn an ordinary sheet into a Roman toga. Learn to write in Latin. Build a legionnaire's helmet and shield, design a decorative mosaic with beans, or draw a sundial that really works! Then, when your day in Rome is through, make your own emperor's feast to share with your family and friends.
