    In the same style as D'Aulaire's Book of Greek Myths, this beautifully illustrated book brings the Norse myths to life for young readers. Thirty-one chapters tell the stories of the first gods and giants, the creation of the world, the creation of man, Yggdrasil the world tree, Asgard and the Aesir gods, the gods and goddesses, the Valkyries and Valhalla, Regnarokk (the end of the gods), and the new world. In true D'Aulaire style the stories are lavishly illustrated, with many full-page illustrations. A reader's guide can be found at the end of the book, which is a combination glossary/pronunciation guide/index. If you enjoyed D'Aulaire's Book of Greek Myths, you are sure to find this collection – with all its lesser-known stories – a real treasure! 160 pgs, hc. – Jess

    Newly expanded edition includes an exclusive behind the scenes look at the book's creation, a biography of the life and work of Ingri and Edgar D'Aulaire, sketches from the authors' personal notebooks and photos from their family album.

    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

    Open up this very kid-friendly introduction to characters from Greek, Roman, Norse and Egyptian mythology. The illustrations are simple and quirky (not scary) and the language is a hoot! Each section is written in the “voice” of the particular god or goddess, each one getting a page or two. The book also clearly states who is connected to whom and how so, something I always found hard to remember about mythology. This is meant to be read by the student first hand and although officially designated for middle-schoolers, I think a 3rd or 4th grader could read it just fine. A glossary in the back will help with vocabulary words and there is a small folded poster in the back. If you have the other Basher books, you will definitely want this one for your reading collection. 7" x 7”, 128 pp, sc. ~ Sara

      Persephone [per-seh-fo-nee] is a character from Greek mythology. She is kidnapped by Hades while out picking wildflowers and becomes his Queen of the Underworld. Meanwhile, her mother gets in a dither and the entire world is affected. In the end, Persephone comes back to her family but with a little glitch. This was how the ancient Greeks explained the seasons. It is a classic tale. This hardcover version has beautiful artwork; I just love the illustrator’s style! It looks like she used colored pencils for a soft, but detailed, look. The language is easy to follow for a child reading this themselves, or it would make for a perfect read aloud book. 24pp, hc, 9.5x11”

    Did you know Nathaniel Hawthorne published two books of Greek myths? In his Wonder Book, Hawthorne retells six of the Greek tales, and readily admits to taking artistic license to help teach morals and character. Stories include: Gorgon's Head, Golden Touch, Paradise of Children, Three Golden Apples, Miraculous Pitcher, and Chimæra. Note that there is some partial nudity in a few of the illustrations. 226 pgs., pb.

    In this sequel to Nathaniel Hawthorne's Wonder Book for Boys and Girls, six more Ancient Greek myths are retold. Told through the eyes of the fictional Eustace Bright, these are not dry tellings, but are quite lively and exciting. Stories include: The Minotaur, The Pygmies (and how they made war against Hercules – no small feat for men of six inches or shorter), The Dragon's Teeth, Circe's Palace, The Pomegranate Seeds (with Ceres and King Pluto), and The Golden Fleece. Note that there's some top-nudity in a couple of the illustrations. 262 pgs, pb.

     Designed to meet the needs of families transitioning to Memoria Press from other educational pathways, this curriculum manual incorporates the first half of D'Aulaire’s Greek Myths, Latina Christiana, States & Capitals, Christian Studies I, and English Grammar Recitation I which are started in grade 3 and completed in grade 4. While the pacing may be faster than your current program, families may find it helpful to start grade 4 earlier than your other children to ease the transition or allow two weeks to complete the 1-2 weeks of assignments. Allowing an extra week is only temporary to help the student transition, with the goal of following the schedule as written as quickly as possible. pb. ~ Deanne

    If you want to add in some Greek myths without spending a ton of your school year on it, this book will do the trick. Students are introduced to many of the characters, places and stories and then given a crafty project to reinforce what they read. It is not time consuming and you could easily do the activities using household items (aluminum foil, poster board, even cookie dough!) The text is easy to read and does a nice job of making those difficult names memorable. Colorful cartoons add a graphic element to every page. You get a peek at history, geography, art and technology of the Ancient Greeks in 85pp! ~ Sara

    Following the travels of Jason and the Argonauts to find the mythical Golden Fleece, this beautifully-illustrated book captures the (abbreviated) story from start to finish. The text is abridged and sanitized in some parts to accommodate a younger audience, but all key elements remain, allowing even hesitant readers to become enraptured by the story. In addition, important Greek gods, mythical creatures, and other tidbits are presented on each page, helping kids learn a little bit more about Greek life and culture along the way! 44 pgs, hc. ~ Stephen

      Subtitled, Ancient Knowledge for Modern Minds. According to this author, if you wish to understand the basis of much of western culture, you must have some study of Greek and Roman societies. Their language, history, literature, philosophy, architecture, science and technology have greatly shaped and influenced much of our society. This book, written in a clever, personable tone, explains key aspects of each of these areas in understandable ways. The author distills and contrasts the Greek and Latin cultures. The language chapter, for examples contains several charts to help in explanation. A brief bibliography and index are included. Great for review or as a solid introduction to the classics. 4” x 7 1/4”, 192 pp, hc. ~ Ruth
