I have been purchasing the classic start series books and reading them along with my child for the past six months. We have enjoyed every one we have read together. The classic starts are abridged "introductions" to the classic novels, meaning that the story line is still intact without all of the difficult dialogue that is often in a classic heavy read. The chapter length and wording are appropriate for elementary-aged children to read on their own.

We find this book, "Greek Myths" very exciting. It is a group of short tales including Jason and the Golden Fleece, Heracles, Perseus, Icarus, The Minotaur, and more. The book explains how the greek gods came to be and then tells stories involving them. It is a great introduction for a child into the classic greek myths.

My children love it. It is written at a kid level with the main points still intact. These are not your regular abridged books.
