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.

We could not put this book down and I have a feeling will be a great source of reference for my little historian. As a mother I couldn't be more please to have my son be reading a work published by a principle of a gifted and magnet school for children. It just give me a feeling of confidence that my son is getting safe (not graphic) information and falling in love with history, the Greek myths in particular but also a love of reading. He couldn't put this down and we were looking forward to story time every night together to know what hero and adventure we would take next. Just amazing couldn't say enough out the Classic starts collection or Greek Myths. It is a rare topic in public schools today let alone with young children so ensuring your child has an open mind and open heart a parent has to supplement information. I wasn't sure about this book or if the material was to advanced for my 3rd grader but I will be buying from this seller again for sure!!!!!

my 9 yr old daughter loves it, and I love that she is getting a head start on this kind of reading. When she is ready for the real book, she will have an idea about what she is reading and for now, she can get the references to these stories.

I was excited about the price and the cover photo looked pretty good. The stories (text really) were very dry re-tellings. I was hoping for pictures and was disapointed. My children (and me too) were bored so we abandoned reading it.

A Kid's Review on February 4, 2012
Format: Hardcover
The negative: The writer leaves a lot of the really good parts out and sometimes slightly changes the stories. That always turns me off. I found myself adding more detail to the stories.

The positive: All that being said, my little boy really enjoyed this book and now has an interest in Greek mythology! That makes me very happy!

Diane Namm does a great job with the myths of all the countries. They are interesting and a great way to get 6th graders to enhance the myths they are studying.

nice condensed books. The whole set works well for young readers, or beginner to read. It kept the main story while short enough the grasp in a few days.
