If you’ve got a kid with a fertile imagination (who doesn’t?), who’s ready to move up from Where The Wild Things Are, this is a great time to introduce him or her to Greek gods, myths and legends. Scholastic’s Mythlopedia books are a great way to do so.
I consulted with my resident nine-year-old fan of all things related to Greek gods, myths and legends for his review of these books and here’s what he had to say:
* The layout of the pages in these books is very fun with lots of information.
* The books are a bit disrespectful of the gods themselves (this is a big deal for a Percy Jackson fan), but if you don’t know anything about the gods when you start to read the books you won’t even notice.
* I learned about powers that gods had that I didn’t know about before.
* Overall, I think these are a great introduction to the fascinating world of Greek gods, myths and monsters.
Thanks to Scholastic Books, I’ve got a set of the four books in the Mythlopedia series to give away.
