Several have now read this book and have really enjoyed it. It's written in a similar fashion as Mark Twain's The Complete Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. Boys LOVE them!
My dd loves this set and has read through several this year. These were given to her and she treasures them!
She's currently on These Happy Golden Years.
One just finished this and another one or two by the same author. Lots of interesting facts we learned from ONE child reading these because every day he would share something new from the book. Love a book that provokes excitement in a child!
The youngest just read this. Love ALL D'aulaire books!
D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths
Abraham Lincoln (Bicentennial Edition)
Leif the Lucky
Looking for mythology? This is a really nice read ...but my kids find their gods to be just lunacy. :) But it is easy to understand and has lovely pictures!
We are in the last few pages of reading this aloud. Several of the older kids have read it and sit on the edge of their seats as we go along saying things like; "Oh yeah! Here's where it gets good!" and "You remember .....well, here's where they become important!" This book gives lots of detail, without being even a tiny bit boring! Love it! (They are hoping I'll read the whole series out loud, but I dunno 'bout that!)
