I love reading books like these. I've always had a fondness for Greek Mythology and culture because of my family-- my sister studied it in high school and would tell me the stories she's learned from school; then there were my parent who were fortunate enough experience the culture in real life having lived in Greece for a few years (I know right? I'm so jealous). Anyhow, this book was chock full of pictures of ancient artifacts and information about Greek society, customs and lore, it was like ...more
You just can't go wrong with the DK Eyewitness books. They feature vivid photography and amazing illustrations. Young readers will enjoy learning about Ancient Greece. A great book to add to your youth non fiction collection.

A little repetitive in places, especially if you read the pull-out poster first before the book, but with lots of difficult-to-remember Greek words, names and places, this isn't such a bad thing. The photos are all very relevant and interesting. I learned a fair bit, such as Pythagoras not eating beans because he believed people were reincarnated as seeds, and I'm far older than the target audience, so I guess a school pupil would find lots of interest therein. Immaculately proofread too. I boug ...more

I felt this book did a great job at capturing what Greece has to offer. I did not feel like I was reading a social studies book but I was just learning about Greece and with that the history of Greece and the traditions held. I especially loved learning about the olympics and how they started. There are so many great lessons that could be taught with that subject because all students have some understanding of what the olympics are so it could be easily related to them. Overall I think this is a ...more

This was a neat book. It was very informative with great pictures and illustrations. I was mostly interested in the pottery because they are known for their artwork they put on the urns. I enjoyed learning about ancient Greece and I think it would be great to have in a classroom for the students to look at.

Very nice introduction to Ancient Greece. Pictures of artifacts and drawings are all accompanied by a brief explanation. The reader learns about religion, war, politics, culture.

This book was fascinating. I would definitly read it again I learned so many things about Greece. It is fun to take this information and add it to my knowledge of Greek culture.

this is about ancient Greece, it shows how they lived, what they did, its just amazing. it makes us appreciate their way of living.
I don't know why we didn't LOVE this book. It was good. I loved the primary source photographs (instead of drawings) of artifacts. But for some reason we just weren't thrilled. Was it because it was the hard (Februaryish) part of the year? or the writing just wasn't as good? or perhaps it was a bit beyond where we are at?

I don't know, all I can tell you is that we were THRILLED to read it or rediscover it and I would have been content to get it from the library and return. Nonetheless, it is a s

This DK eyewitness book is laid out more nicely than many I have seen before. The information, while not jumbled is still pretty sophisticated, so, even if it looks like a nice picture book for kids, it is still for older readers. I enjoyed this one immensely, even though it glossed over some of the topics of Greek society that can get a little sticky. The book also comes with a cd of clip art, which would be great if the kids reading this book were doing a school Powerpoint/project. For ages 11 ...more

This book has a picture of artifacts that were recovered from ancient Greece. This book had lots about Greek jars and bowls because the Greeks made beautiful Jars/vases.

Beautiful and clear fotographs, full of details and well written

incl clip art CD

DK's Ancient Greece is a great resource for all kind of ages.
a break down of pictures and elements of historical greece explaining some of the facts
a good early resource

It was boring. I only read this for Social Studies Academic Team. Definitely not going to suggest this to any one.
I have the 2000 edition. The cover is a bit different.
good info - accurate art - be forewarned - nude stuff.
