      Here at Rainbow Resource, we carry a good variety of resources for Greek mythology, and now we found another good one. The Usborne Book of Greek Myths is a very thorough, comprehensive coverage on the topic. The book is divided into two parts. The first and bigger part is the actual myths. The second part is a guide to the myths – who’s who, where did it happen (with maps), and a glossary. The font is large, and the artwork is a wonderful enhancement to the stories – full color illustrations highlighting details of the stories.  This Usborne book can be a tremendous help with your study of Greek myths and the lessons to be learned from them. 301 pages, paper board cover. ~ Donna

    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

    What a beautiful book! Large format (9x12") with a hard blue fabric cover and a lovely vintage image of Pegasus and Bellerophon opens up to artfully bordered ivory pages and more color illustrations. There is at least one illustration per story and they have an art-nouveau, old-fashioned charm to them. Milo Winter is the main artist. The large font is reader-friendly for children and the language used is very understandable for about a 3rd or 4th grade level reader in my opinion, though they may struggle with pronouncing the names! Myths included: Pandora & the Box of Troubles, Perseus & Medusa, King Midas & the Golden Touch, Bellerophon & Pegasus, Hyacinthus & Apollo, Theseus & the Minotaur, Philemon & Baucis, Pygmalion & Galatea, Echo & Narcissus, Labors of Hercules, Endymion's Sleep, Orpheus & Eurydice, Ceres & Proserpine, Cupid & Psyche, Juno & Halcyone, Atalanta & the Footrace and Jason & the Golden Fleece. Add this book to a unit study of ancient Greece or ancient history. Give it as a gift or add it to your home library. They would make great bedtime stories! Hc, 144pp. ~Sara

    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

    Introducing children to the great myths may add perspective to your historical or literature studies. For example, you may have heard the term, "Achilles Heel" and wondered how it came to be. Legend tells of Thetis dipping Achilles into the River Styx to make him immortal. However, she was holding him by the part of the heel we now call our Achilles' heel. This part didn't enter the water and therefore, he had an exposed area of weakness. Or were you aware of the impact of mythology on the writings of Shakespeare? In this succinct, vibrantly illustrated book, you will learn main characters and interesting facts in Greek mythology, as well as similar stories and characters from other cultures. Glossary and index along with additional book and web resource listings make this an amusing resource to learn more about your favorite Ancient Greek myths. 48 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

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

    This book includes around 50 simple activities that will help students build some background knowledge of Ancient Greece, explore the genre of myths, and learn important vocabulary. Activities can be completed sequentially or individually to supplement a study of Ancient Greece. The activities are broken up into five units: Getting Started with Myths has activities that show students where myths came from and explains the culture of ancient times, Mighty Mount Olympus has activities that teach about the ancient gods, Heroic Heracles offers projects that teach about the legendary hero, Who Started the Trojan War has assignments that teach about the war, and Making Connections gives activities that show how Ancient Greek aspects are present in our world today and how people are still affected by this ancient civilization. Each unit opens with a brief introduction that shares a bit about the ancient culture, and teaching tips are included throughout. A list of materials for each activity is given (often it is just the supplied reproducible worksheet and a pencil), along with step-by-step directions. Sometimes the activity is as simple as reading some text, filling out a worksheet, and discussing answers. All of the activities are fairly easy to complete and require no real outside materials except scissors, glue, and writing utensils. Activities besides simple worksheets include a mock interview with a god or goddess, having students write a myth of their own, creating and playing "It's Fate" (a simple board game that shows beliefs about the afterlife), a few mapping and charting worksheets, vocabulary worksheets, and more. The activities are designed for classroom use but could easily be used in a homeschool setting. Access to the Internet, a dictionary, and a map of ancient Greece are helpful (and sometimes necessary) to gather information to complete the activities. This is a great resource that will get students thinking beyond the mythology. A light supplement for any ancient Greece study. Black and white reproducible, 80 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    This colorful book breaks down the confusing world of Greek mythology into understandable stories for children with easily understandable language. There are lists and explanations of all the gods and goddesses as well as the Titans and Olympians. Also included are stories involving many of these characters that make up the family dynamic and reasons for the contemptuous relationships among them. Some of the myths and illustrations contain violent occurrences but because of the type of illustrations, nothing is gory. A pocket in the front of the book contains a Greek mythology family tree poster, stickers, and temporary tattoos of Greek characters. An index and pronunciation of Greek names are in the back of the book. ~ Alissa
