“The Ancient Greeks by Imogen Greenberg & Isabel Greenberg
While wandering the aisles of the Big Bad Wolf Books, I found this gem. As I’m a Greek-Canadian living in Taiwan with kids, it’s very important for me to pass on my Greek culture to my children; one way I can do this is through books!
This book is sort of like a graphic novel with interesting facts about the ancient Greeks. I learned a few facts from this book, but this book is mostly aimed at children 8+. I enjoyed flipping through this book, which is tall and not very wide, like a menu. The graphics are cute and the captions are funny!
This book is a good introduction to the ancient Greek civilization. They introduce poets, the ways Greek civilization has influenced other countries, the Olympics. It also has a great big map at the back of ancient Greece and a timeline of major events and famous Greeks. It certainly will quickly become a favourite of my children I’m sure.
They also have books about the Aztecs, the Egyptians, and the Romans. I will have to collect them all!
Rating: ★★★★ Book #44 in My 2019 Reading Challenge
