The table of contents and index are useful, as is a list of suggested web sites and CD-ROM's, videos, books, and even museums. Best of all are the tips for making the most of each reference, for example, take your notebook to the museum, and it isn't necessary to read the entire non-fiction book. Photographs and drawings are plentiful and right on the mark.
Here you learn about daily life in ancient greece, Greek gods; zeus, hera, athena, and more. The olympic grounds and the different summer games.
Now after reading this book in this great series I understand the olympics better. Now lets go watch the games. yeaaa.
This book goes hand-in-hand with Magic Tree House #16: Hour of the Olympics (A Stepping Stone Book(TM)). Other Olympic Games books that could appeal to children of this age include: How the Olympics Came to Be. by Helen East, Mehrdokht Amini, Asterix at the Olympic Games, The Olympic Adventure: Magic Necklace Series (Volume 1), etc
