This was a really enjoyable children's history book.
Eagle Watcher
I really liked this book, I learned a lot of reasons why Greeks did stuff like I learned why it was easier to travel by sea and some other stuff but that's what I remember most about. I also liked that it would ask a question then the book would answer it with a bunch of cool facts. I'm really happy that I chose this book because it was very interesting to read and I learned a lot but I really do wonder why Greeks built temples well I guess I'll find out some other time.

This book was full of interesting facts, from who the ancient Greeks were, to the different gods and goddesses. Even the food they ate and their forms of entertainment were included. It will leave your kids wanting to know more about ancient times.
