Echo & Echo is perfect for fans of mythology. However, these mythology stories are not written in the normal fashion. They are written in poetry form - reversos in fact. What is a reverso? It is actually a poem that reads differently depending on how you read it. You read it one way, and then you flip it over and read it in reverse and it tells the story in a different way! It is really quite creative and very interesting! That being said, each mythology covered in this book is told in two stories. Sometimes the poems are from the same character, other times they are told from differing characters. This is not necessarily a book I would use for storytime. However, I would possibly consider it as reading before bed. It is a longer book, but easy to find a place to stop in. So you could potentially read a couple poems a night and everyone would end up happy. Or if you have an older child that is not quite ready for chapter books, but likes to read and likes mythology - they would enjoy reading this one. There are ample enough words on the pages that they wont feel like they are reading a "book for babies." Also, the artwork is gorgeous! This review is based on a copy provided by the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review. Find more of my reviews here: http://readingwithcupcakes.blogspot.com/
