    This is such a fantastic book. Simple reading and great pictures. My daughter really enjoyed it. Took the dread out of learning about Greek Myths.

    A beautifully illustrated book! The content of the book is excellent for kids (& adults), and draws you into the story of the Greek myths immediately. An excellent resource to add to your library for the study of ancient history.

    This is a wonderful book. Twice a week I read one of the myths to my son, he loves them. This is great addition to any course focusing on the history or culture of ancient Greece. It is also a good way to simply broaden a childs knowledge base and interest in history and/or literature. The myths presented are done in a tasteful manner, however, I would recommend that parents review them first. I consider the material appropriate for fourth grade and up.
