it was amazing
bookshelves: when-i-was-a-kid
Read in January, 1978

I discovered this book in the 5th grade in my school's library. I would sit cross legged right on the floor by the bottom shelf where it was kept, spread out the huge, thick book on my lap and read while I looked at the wonderful drawings. When we moved I semi-forgot about the book, not remembering the author's name; when I was in college I was walking by a bookstore in a mall when I glanced at the display case to see a book with the same style of drawings. I immediately went in to discover the store did not have my beloved book on Greek myths, but they could order it for me. I jumped at the chance to finally own the book.

This is a wonderful way to introduce children to Greek mythology. The stories are engagingly told, and the drawings catch the eye and compliment the myths well. I do have to admit the book, while still big, was not as large as my 10 year old self remembered. :)
