For my latest book choice, I thought I'd try something a little different. I chose a children's book and read it with my five-year-old son. The book was Attack at the Arena by Marianne Hering and Paul McCusker.
This is a chapter book for ages 7 and up and is the second in The Imagination Station series. It tells the story of cousins Patrick and Beth and their adventure in ancient Rome. The authors incorporate history and a true historical figure (Telemachus) into the story. It was a little advanced for my five-year-old. Even though he didn't always understand what was happening in the the story, he was always excited to hear what happened next. The book has lots of action and adventure and is a great read for children. I love that it introduces the historical fiction genre to such a young age group. I definitely plan to continue the series with my children when they are a little older.
Thanks for Reading,
