Sightseeing Sophie in Rome
Written by local mother, Yola Thorp, and illustrated by Ayesha King.
When in Rome, do as the Romans do…
The Eternal City shows Sophie what it really means to be ancient.
Italy is home to some of the oldest buildings and history in Europe
and Sophie imagines what life might have been like there almost 3,000 years ago.
The Colosseum, the Spanish Steps and the fountains amaze Sophie.
Even tossing a coin into the Trevi Fountain is a tradition best taught
by someone who knows just how to do it. Vatican City teaches the little girl about religion and what faith is. And to top off the history? Ah, the food—pizza, pasta, and gelato taste the best in Rome.
