This is the way to introduce yourself to an otherwise involved and "grown-up" text: read the kids version first. Much less painful, much more fun. Now I'm ready for the real thing.

12/10: previewing for the boys. Enjoyed. Clean, easy-to-read copy, nice font, white space. Cute, clear history.

A solid book about Herodotus, how "history" was first being recorded, and the world of ~ 400 BC in Greece/surrounding areas. Bendick uses first person, acting as Herodotus, so this blurs the lines of "nonfiction" and "fiction." Short, sweet, and engaging for kids who have some familiarity already with this time period.

Short & sweet, so it doesn't go very deep. But overall a good overview of Herodotus. Could definitely give to a 2nd - 7th grader to just read by themselves.

A nice introduction to Herodotus and the writings of his histories. My six year old read this book aloud to me as part of our Greek history booklist. It has simple drawings on nearly every page and the chapters are about 10 pages each, perfect for getting through in a sitting. Probably fourth grade reading level.

I enjoyed this book, it was a very quick read. My favorite part about the book was how the author made it seem so accurate. It was a nice light book to give a little insight on the Greeks.

Reading this to the kids as an introduction to White's The Boys' and Girls' Herodotus.

It was such a vague book, just an overview. Boys found it boring.
