These tales of Greek gods are rewritten and simplified for children, giving a broad overview of the legends that made Greek and Roman myths famous throughout the world. The stories of both Greeks and Romans are combined, instead of being told twice with different names.

Very pretty and well done summary of Greek mythology for children, teens, and adults.
Reading nonfiction books for children can be a nice experience to revisit what you think you know, or refresh what you have forgotten. This is why I decided to read Goddess Power: 10 Empowering Tales of Legendary Women, a Kids’ Book of Greek & Roman Mythology.

When I was a child, around 10 I believe, I read an excellent book on Greek Mythology. Incidentally, seeing this title, I tried to find this book again,

First of all, Alida Massari's illustrations are stunning throughout the book. The cover art and goddesses are depicted so beautifully!

Now, the book! I read it cover-to-cover in one sitting, as it was captivating for this 40-something to get a review of Greek/Roman mythology told in a fun narrative way. Yung In Chae, our storyteller, is a Princeton and Cambridge-educated Classics expert who is able to tell the stories with detail and in a delightfully fun manner. The 10 stories are followed by an

There is also a pictorial reference containing a short description of various mythological creatures. I found the pronunciation guide to be an extremely helpful reference. I also

I enjoyed this book. I was hoping it could be used for 3rd grade, since this is part of the curriculum but I think it would be better for older grades based on the content. Very interesting! I enjoyed reading the background information on these women.
