Ranger in Time - Danger in Ancient Rome (Kate Messner)

I've been meaning to check out this series for a while. I'm excited to introduce it to my students. Look out Magic Tree House! I loved how there was a lot to learn in this book. I would recommend reading the back matter before even starting the story.

Goodreads summary:

Ranger, the time-traveling golden retriever, is back for the second book in Kate Messner's new chapter book series. This time, he's off to save the day in ancient Rome!

Ranger is a golden retriever who has been trained as a search-and-rescue dog. In this adventure, Ranger travels to the Colosseum in ancient Rome, where there are gladiator fights and wild animal hunts! Ranger befriends Marcus, a young boy Ranger saves from a runaway lion, and Quintus, a new volunteer gladiator who must prove himself in the arena. Can Ranger help Marcus and Quintus escape the brutal world of the Colosseum?
