Kids are invited to become a soldier for the Roman Empire at the height of its power! Will they have what it takes? This exciting new book, with its beautifully detailed drawings and compelling text, details all aspects of a Roman soldier's life. Readers will learn that Roman soldiers performed as a team, lived together, and earned handsome salaries. They traveled far, fought hard and, when time allowed, they took in exciting forms of recreation such as chariot races and gladiator fights. A unique section at the end of the book tests readers' grasp of the material by having them ''interview'' for the position of Roman soldier.

History is exciting and memorable in this creative new nonfiction series that ''preps'' children for some of the most fascinating occupations throughout time. Each book features an original format that allows kids to identify with the given profession. Detailed illustrations bring the action to life. And engaging text challenges students to learn as much as they can as they prepare for a ''job interview'' at the end of the book. All of the topics selected complement social studies curriculum in grades 3 to 6. This series is sure to motivate even the most reluctant of readers—especially boys.
