5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Stacy Wanton on September 10, 2006
Format: Paperback
When I received this book, I was amazed. The illustrations are wonderful and attention-grabbing, especially when using with students. I immediately let other English teachers view the book to see if they would like to use it in their classroom. Of course, they did.

There are a vast amount of creation myths which are all informative and interesting at the same time; from Mesopotamia to Egypt to India to Iceland, it's all here in this book.
