Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Step into the world of ancient Greece and meet some of its philosophers, poets, Olympic champions and gods and goddesses. Travel to Athens, one of the first democracies in the world, and Mount Olympus, where the Greeks believed their gods and goddesses lived. Visit temples and festivals, and the agora, the marketplace of Athens. How did the Greeks live? What were their houses like? What did they do for fun? How did Greek athletes train for the Olympics? What sports did athletes participate in at the first Olympics? The answers to these questions and much more valuable information is found between the covers of this exceptional book. This guide is the nonfiction companion to Hour of the Olympics, another title in the "Magic Tree House" series. Photographs and illustrations enhance the concise text. Jack and Annie, the protagonists in the "Magic Tree House" series, appear throughout the book to tell readers "fun facts" about ancient Greece. For example, readers will learn that flute music was played during the long jump at the first Olympics; that actors in Greek plays always wore masks; and that Greek children kept pet goats, turtles, mice, dogs and birds. The last chapter in this book discusses today's Olympics and compares it to the original. As always, Jack and Annie tell readers where they can find additional information about ancient Greece and provide tips for doing more research. Children old enough to read this book will be able to put the Olympics events in Greece this summer in a cultural and a historical context. This may be the first time in their short lives that they can participate as spectators and watch the games with interest. 2004, Random House, Ages 6 to 10.
—Jeanne K. Pettenati, J.D.

    worthwhile

    I was pleased with the book ,"Ancient Greece and the Olympics. Mary Pope Osborne and Natalie Pope Boyce have put together a fine publication. This is, of course, expected from this admirable team of writers. I always read completely any publication that I intend to purchase for my grandchildren and found myself enjoying the book immensely. The history which could be 'boring' or ' dry' to children is kept alive by being concise and not long-winded. Topics are short but convey plenty of information for young readers. My grandson had been reading a fantasy series with his dad which included various Greek gods, goddesses and heroes (Rick Riordan's "The lightning Thief" 'Percy Jackson and the Olympians') (also very enjoyable) so I thought maybe I could con him into reading a non-fiction book on similar material. Apparently he picked it up and immediately devoured it. When an eight year chooses Learning Something over a video game, you know the book is a keeper.
