DK Discovery Day ~ Findout! Ancient Rome ~ GIVEAWAY!

History was always one of my favorite subjects when I was in school. I found it fascinating to learn about the past and of course it helped that our teacher always made it fun to learn history. ๐Ÿ™‚ Although those years of schoolwork and history assignments are over for me, these days I have the privilege of getting to learn about history all over again – this time through the eyes of my own children!

One of our favorite ways to learn history is to read. It’s especially fun to read history books that are filled with more than just long words…books like the ones that you can find at DK Canada! DK findout! Ancient Rome is one of the books that we’ve been learning from recently. This book is certainly NOT the types of boring history books that you may remember from your school days. It is filled with amazing (real life) photos, fun quizzes and lots of great facts and information. It is written to be kid-friendly and is age-appropriate and understandable.

In DK findout! Ancient Rome you’ll get to travel back in time and discover what life was like during the Roman Empire. You’ll read about gladiators, emperors and the daily lives of Roman people. For example…Did you know that soldiers walked over 20 miles a day with their heavy armor and ate garlic to stay healthy? Sounds like it would work…and like it was also a lot of WORK! ๐Ÿ˜‰ There are all kinds of neat and unusual facts like this tucked into this book. It is a highly interactive and engaging history book that will capture the attention of kids (and adults too! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) much more quickly than the more traditional history books.

In addition to the books, DK Canada also has a free online resource where you can find all kinds of great educational information on a WIDE variety of topics. You’ll find this at

Why not make it your goal this year to learn more, expand your knowledge, and have fun while doing it?
