Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Patrick Hunter
This nonfiction book is part of the "Starting History" series, and it focuses on aspects of Greek life. It is made up of spreads focusing on one aspect of Greek life. The book starts with a overview of the Greeks and where they lived in the world. It goes on to address the Greek Empire, daily life, childhood, religion, and myths, writing, theatre, and learning. There is a spread that is devoted to famous Greeks, providing one or two paragraphs about Alexander the Great, Aristotle, Hippocrates, and Sappho. Another spread is devoted to the Olympics. The book also includes a short glossary of terms at the end and even a one-page index. The best aspect of this book is that it provides an activity in each spread. The activity relates to the topic covered. For example, in the theatre spread, the activity is making Greek theatre masks; the writing spread provides the Greek Alphabet as it relates to the American Alphabet so that you can write your name in Greek. Each topic spread contains photographs or images related to that topic. In some of the related activity suggestions, they show a child with the completed activity. Though the level is listed as Grades 3 and up, it is most appropriate for just Grades 3 to 5. The book is too easy for any grade level above that but is an excellent book for Grades 3 to 5, especially as a starting point for a lesson on the Greeks or for reading independently.
