Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an incredibly rich book written in accessible language covering a really wide range of topics relating to the Parthenon (art, religion, architecture, language). I learned many things although I thought I was already quite familiar with the Parthenon. The author weaves his own scholarship into the text rather than talking down to his audience, but he does it in a concrete way that children can understand. He doesn't hesitate to use big words and name specifics and even include Greek words here and there, but he is so clear and the book is so well illustrated that I don't think there can be much confusion for a bright 6 year old. Also, the text and pictures are not some scattered mishmash like those DK books (which I hate, by the way). They are presented in a logical order and the text is absolutely necessary to the picture and vice versa. The pictures are full size (as opposed to squinting size). Also note that Mr. Jenkins does not shy away from the religious aspects of the temple and what the people believed, giving detail on the actual ceremonies and function of the temple and its outlying buildings. It is very objectively presented.
