Virtue and science for kids

The story weaves in elements of scientific observation that was in its infancy during Roman times, and was rare. However, moderns will approve if children in the audience receive a positive characterization of thinkers who were radical for that time. Another modern element is the characterization of barbaric slavery and gladiatorial violence.

Another great listen...

We have listened to the entire series and this is one of the best. It's one of our go-to's when we can't decide on what to listen to.

I loved the book

The book was great.
I like the main character a lot and I liked his Pop too. I think you put great detail into the book. I loved the ending.

I loved the Skype two years ago with you.
