My Papa's name is Galen and he was a physician

I read this to my child/student the last time I taught through Rome to the Reformation, and it was one the highlights of our year. I must have leant it out because I am now ordering my second copy.

Enjoyable living Science book
This is a good living book for about 5th grade independent reading. My daughter and I have been reading it together, one chapter per day. Using the life of Galen, a physician in the Roman Empire ad, we learned about the history of Medicine and what Galen achieved in his lifetime, sometimes comparing it to what we know now.
