Augury Is for the Birds
 

Encounter the ancient Roman practice of augury, or bird divination—entirely in Latin!

Marcus, a young Roman boy, couldn’t care less about birds or their significance, even if they convey the divine will of Jupiter himself! He’d much rather train as a Roman soldier, just like his dad Titus. His dad, however, has other plans: he has arranged for Marcus to learn the ins and outs of interpreting bird signs from skilled augur Lucius. As Marcus finds, deciphering the gods’ plans for the future is hard enough—will he and his dad ever be able to come to an understanding about his own future?
