Through modern poetry this book gives a lot of information about Ancient Greece. It's starts off with a poem that deals with pronouncing Greek names. From there each poem looks at the important people and events during this time. There are even a few poems at the end that focus on Greek Mythology. The illustrations are colorful and do a great job complimenting each poem.

I think this would be great to use in the classroom when studying Ancient

This book is a great book that is full of great information and facts about Ancient Greece. It is an alphabet poetry book and each letter stands for a different fact about Ancient Greece. It would be great to use during a history unit on ancient cultures and civilizations. I really liked the illustrations and I think the kids would too!
This is such a fun read aloud that is best to be read after your have learned about Ancient Greece. And if children know the ancient Greek stories well enough, you can let them finish many of the rhymes. Fun!
