A brand-new Ready-to-Read book by Anne Rockwell. This retelling of the story of Romulus and Remus tells of their early separation from their mother, their childhood years when they were raised by wolves, and how they came to found the city of Rome, which was populated first by slaves. Exciting fare that's simple to read but right for the interest level of first through third graders.

About the Author:

Anne Rockwell (1934–2018) has written numerous books for children, including At the Beach and The First Snowfall, both illustrated by Harlow Rockwell. 

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-2?This retelling of the founding of Rome is an admirable introduction to myth. Twins Romulus and Remus are found and raised by a female wolf. As they grow older, Romulus has an interest in making things, while Remus enjoys hunting with his wolf brothers. Romulus builds a city, which he names after himself, and is made king; Remus leaves to go off with the pack. While this story keeps much of the old myth intact, it softens the tale for young readers, leaving out such details as jealous gods and Remus's untimely death. The Rome of this book is a kinder, gentler place than is generally depicted, and there is no mention of divine intervention. Deftly illustrated with bright watercolors, the figures echo Roman mosaics. One small quibble: the text stresses the point that Romulus is a little bigger than Remus, but in the illustrations both boys appear to be the same size. Otherwise, the art is a fine complement to this story. Mythology titles for beginning readers are scarce; this one fills that gap nicely.?Angela J.
