No education is complete without a large slice of Greek mythology. And there’s no better way of meeting that literary quota than with the D’Aulaires’ book. All the great gods and goddesses of ancient Greece are depicted in this big, beautiful classic, lovingly illustrated and skillfully told. Young readers will be dazzled by mighty Zeus, lord of the universe; stirred by elegant Athena, goddess of wisdom; intimidated by powerful Hera, queen of Olympus; and chilled by moody Poseidon, ruler of the sea. These often impetuous immortals flounce and frolic, get indiscreet, and get even. From petty squabbles to heroic deeds, their actions cover the range of godly, and mortal, personalities.

No child is too young to appreciate the myths that have built the foundation for much of the world’s art and literature over the centuries. This introduction to mythology is a treasure.

    " Grew up on this--still love it, or at least like it. All Greek gods will forever look to me like the drawings in this book. "

    " It's a perfect book to use to introduce Greek mythology to children. The illustrations are also extremely lovely, and sometimes I found myself spending as much time studying the visuals as much as I did the text. I loved this book when I read my sister's copy, I loved it when I read it for my sixth grade mythology unit, and I loved it when I would flip through it just for fun years later. I highly recommend this book for people of all ages! "
