    This classic text introduces students to all aspects of ancient Greek society. Each chapter covers a different topic, including the People and Land (geography), Homer, City-States, Sparta, Wars with Persia, Religion, Games, Education, Alexander, and more. Plenty of captioned black and white photos, maps, diagrams, and illustrations appear throughout the text. For example, there is an illustrated page explaining the names and functions of twenty-two different types of pottery that Greeks used in their everyday lives; a floor plan of a typical Greek house; and photographs of ancient coins. The text is engaging and readable, with excerpts from classic Greek literature and an anecdotal, "storytelling" quality that makes you feel like you are witnessing the events unfold. An index in the back of the book contains information on the Greek alphabet and language, a list of discussion questions for each chapter, a timeline/date chart, and a list of sources for further reading. Index included. By H.D. Amos & A.G.P. Lang. 224 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    Golden fleece, titans, and muses, oh my! This is a very thorough collection of ancient Greek myths accompanied by artful pencil drawings in color and black and white.

    Starting with Gaea and Uranus (Earth and sky), stories are chronological to the Titans, Zeus and his descendants. Supporting characters are also given their due. Children will read about Hera, Hades, Persephone, Pandora, Centaurs, Orpheus, the Gorgon, King Midas, Oedipus, and more.

    The tales are written for children to understand. Add this book to a unit study of ancient Greece, the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Mediterranean region, or even as a study of ancient religions. Compare their beliefs with modern ones. ~Sara

    This classic description of the contributions of the ancient Greeks to Western civilization was written by Edith Hamilton in the 1930s. With excitement and an obvious love for the culture, the author tells the story of how the Greeks in Athens developed a new way of life in the Western world around the 5th century BC. Stressing the importance of freedom and reason, Hamilton covers Greek philosophy, art, writing, politics, religion, lifestyle, and more. She also compares these aspects of culture to other people groups at the time to show how the Greeks were and are different. Various people like Plato, Socrates, Aeschylus, and Pindar are highlighted, and parallels are drawn between figures such as Aeschylus and Shakespeare and Aristophanes and William S. Gilbert. While describing the historical high of Greek culture and influence, the author shows how the world is still affected by this culture, their philosophy, and their way of life. Filled with examples, the book shows how and why the ancient Greeks still influence our world. 212 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
