    It would be a choice of Ancient Egypt or Ancient Rome. I’d hate to have to choose between the two of them.

    i would choose the DK Children’s Illustrated Thesaurus because it gives children so many words and, especially, those that have the same meaning. This gives children a good start on a useful vocabulary.
