Our Little Roman Cousin of Long Ago
by Julia Darrow Cowles
Through the story of Marcus and his growth to manhood in the closing days of the Roman Republic, we discover much about life and customs in ancient Rome. We accompany Marcus as he learns his lessons in school, joins his father on a trip to the Senate, pays a visit to his father's farm, and watches the triumph of a victorious general. The crowning moment comes when Marcus assumes the toga, the mark of a Roman citizen.  Ages 8-10
