"...Another in the well-done "Build It Yourself" Series. Sidebars, eye-catching illustrations, and explanatory text accompany the hands-on activities that will take you on a world-wide adventure you won't forget."
"World Myths and Legends can quickly become a favorite due to it being about some of the most exciting and fantastical stories in existence. I’ve had this book for several weeks and we’re not even 25% into completing the crafts. . . I haven’t seen my nine year old excited about a book like this for a while."
"Although this book might sound like a fairly ordinary craft book, it is much more--it is also an excellent introduction to the cultures and myths of a diverse selection of peoples, and one I highly recommend to home-schoolers in particular. . . The projects themselves are extremely varied, and go beyond simple craft-ness. For instance, one activity for the Greek section is to use Euclidian geometry to make an equilateral triangle--fun with compasses! The point is that these are rather cool projects, such as I have never seen elsewhere."

“This book is a terrific introduction for children to the subject of myths and legends. I cannot imagine a work that would more readily win the interest of children in the subject.”
