Ancient Greece for Children

M. Heiss
The list author says: "These books will capture the interest and imagination of younger children. 3rd-4th-5th graders are old enough to understand and enjoy these examples from Greek mythology, and younger children will love to be read to.

All of these are well-illustrated -- my kids are visual."
