Hi There! I'm trying to schedule my children to read books in the time period we are studying(Rome) and I keep seeing Rosemary Sutcliff books popping up. Has anybody read any of her books? Are they okay? I usually read an unfamiliar book out loud to the kids myself so that I can edit as I go, but I already have a book scheduled for this (Bronze Bow).
We're getting to the point where I can't keep up with pre-reading or reading aloud every book. I've been holding my children back, almost, from reading and learning because I want to pre-read everything and don't have time. I'm wondering if Sutcliff's books are fine, without anything questionable, for 12 and 10yo to read on their own?
What's interesting is I don't know anyone who has read them, and I thought they were quite popular!
I appreciate any help!
