My 7yr old daughter loves to read and has always loved it when I read to her. I am very blessed that all my children have taken on the love of books like I have. When I was given the chance to review this book, I was excited! You can never have too many books to read. My 7yr old daughter enjoyed this book. I felt it was a little beyond my 5yr olds interest. My 5yr old was intrigued at first because of the colorful pictures and lost interest as I was reading to him. As I was reading to my daughter, she decided she wanted to read it to me instead! What we both enjoyed from the book was that not only was it a nice storyline but we both learned about the different customs and landmarks in Rome. You are never too young or old to learn.
