    1. I absolutely loved this book! I picked it up initially because I love learning about ancient Greece and fell in love with it because it had many eye catching illustrations and fun facts scattered throughout the book. One aspect I thought that was really neat was that it had cool activities at the end of each section to assess whether you read the passage closely or not. I thought that that was a cool way to assess student knowledge. The reading was on a fairly easy level. The names were probably [...]

    2. This book is great because it shows a lot of detail in the past and a lot of constellations. This book is about that Zeus is a good guy and the gorgon is a bad guy and the good guys fight the tiatans so they can have peace. I would reccomend this to a scientest because it shows a lot of stars and talk about that how they became a constellation.

Ok, this is like the executive summary of the Greek myths, with a little bit of Greek history thrown in for context. i am not a big mythology gal, so this book aimed at grammar school kids was really just about perfect for me, and I especially liked the family tree in the back which really summed it all up for me, and made the relationship between the Olympic gods and the Titans more concrete as well. This might be part of a series (I got this off the New Book shelf at the library and did not se [...]

    5. This is a great book for a general overview of Greek myths. I would recommend this to children who have begun to learn about myths and for people who just want to remember what happened. For people who love this book i would recommend you to read the Percy Jackson series if you enjoy fantasy. I wouldn't how ever recommend this book to people who are looking for specific information and only recommend it who are new to myths or want a general overview. The book is filled with little activities fo [...]
