This was one of my favorite books as a child but after a few moves, I lost my copy. I found this and ordered it to share with my daughter, to teach her a bit about her Greek heritage. It is exactly as I remembered it- the colorful pictures and intriguing stories about the gods and goddesses of ancient Greece still captivate me. My daughter is 5, so the wording it a bit plain for her but she enjoys the beautiful pictures and asks lots of questions about each deity. I wouldn't call this an educational book but it was a big part of my Greek identity growing up and I like sharing that with my daughter, even if we're not Greek Orthodox.
I just think it's an interesting subject and this is one of the best books I've found regarding Greek myth. Might be better for an older child, maybe 8 or 9, but it's a straightforward read and wonderfully illustrated.
Highly recommend and happy with the price, as I've had trouble finding it elsewhere. It arrived quickly and in perfect condition!

One of my 8-yr old favorite books. Will keep her entertained for many hours as she devours the myths and legends. She cannot wait to tell me about the different gods, goddesses, and mythical creatures described in the stories. The accompanying drawings are suitable for young children.
This book is also a perfect birthday gift for kids 7-10 to encourage them to read. I am now getting multiple copies to hand out as birthday gifts.

A classic book on classic Greek mythology. I remember pouring over this book again and again when I was a kid and now, decades later, my kid is enjoying it too. It was the origin of my own ongoing fondness for Greek lore in general, and as I grew older, I recognized how relevant its contents remained, whether it be related to the days of the week, the names of planets and constellations, or the rich observations it makes of human nature and psychology. The book offers rich insight as to how ancient civilizations interpreted the world around them. I recommend this book as a primer for parents wanting to impart to their children a crucial aspect of Western civilization, so much of which remains with us to this day.

I ordered this years ago for my first child. 7 years later, we ordered another one. This is a good version of the Greek myths, with good printing and plenty of illustrations.

The Greek myths are integral to so much literature and films - children need a good foundation for future reading and this book gives that.

I recommend this book without reservation.

Love the book. Arrived quickly, in excellent condition. My husband was given a copy of this book by a teacher when he was a kid and he was excited to acquire a copy for our son, who is old enough tonstart reading at this level. For my husband's sake, I wish I had purchased a hardback version, but this one is sturdy and my son and husband have been enjoying this book together.

One of the best books for young children ever. This amazing book covers many of the most widely known Greek myths, but many lesser known stories too. It contains a mix of beautiful drawings that are both comic and sophisticated. The text is clear yet lyrical, while remaining easily understandable to young children. I can't tell you how many perfectly beautiful Saturdays I spent up in my room reading this engrossing book instead of riding my bike or playing games with other kids. And I don't regret it at all. Recently I was asked to give a parent a book recommendation for their 7-year-old child. Not only did I buy them this book, but I bought one for myself and relived the joy it gave me all over again.

My 5 and 1/2 year old is obsessed with Greek myths. I bought this on the recommendation of a parent with a similarly aged kid, and she's right - my daughter is enthralled! Daulaire's starts at the beginning, with the Greek creation myths and moves forward from there in logical sequence. The retellings are simplified but not simplistic, which is a step up from many other junior myth books. There's still some poetry to the language, and plenty of vividness and details. The illustrations are not the most sophisticated, but are interesting, and my kid pores over them. As well as being suitable for reading outloud, Daulaire's would keep kids who can read happy, probably up until about 8-10, depending on the sophistication of their reading and their hunger for mythology (they would be ready to move onto more classic retellings by then). I thoroughly recommend this book.
D'aulaire's series are still the greatest over time but the printing quality and paper stock of these latest editions are very marginal. For my great granddaughters, I was disappointed and I think the University of Minnesota could surely have done better.
