Ancient Greece: Mythology and History Perfect for Preteens
The Greek Myths have been a recurring theme of joy in our household. The book by Charles Kovac's Ancient Greece-with myths and history for preteens-is no less then outstanding. My children were glued to their seats and couldn't wait to see what happens next. They made beautiful block crayon pictures of different scenes in the book. Hercules, Perseus, Artemis and Athena- are all there. We just finished up reading about Alexander. I learned more myself about history than my many years at public and private American schools. The children are sad that the stories are over but I bought them some individual stories for them to read on their own- Odysseus and a few more. In the spring we will start on Roman history- they are already excited. I have to take some time off to work on some fairy tales with my seven year old-I divide up my time-focusing more on one subject than another- and with two different age groups it can be difficult.
