Resources Post – Greek Myths and Legends

this should be a short set of links, but we all adore greek myths and legends, so have got rather a number of different lovely books of different styles. Some for younger children, some for older/all ages, some cartoon and some read aloud. love them all :) Will also link at the bottom to other books we have enjoyed reading in this ‘greek phase’ of our historyetc/story of the world. I hope you enjoy the Greek myths and legends as much as we do :)

Older readers/read aloud

We love read alouds, and these have beautiful illustrations, and are also well written and captivate both my 6 and 10 year old. I think the Penelope Lively and Rosemary Sutcliffe books are particularly gorgeous though, and recommend them highly.

Mixed/younger age groups

We love Marcia Wiliams cartoon books, and have quite a collection of them now :blush: We had the 2 usborne books for years, and they have also been very well read.

Loosely Based Around books [older]

we don’t have the percy jackson books as yet, though did enjoy the film. the terry deary fire thief books though are excellent.

Other Media

Please add your must reads to this list as well in the comments box :) I love amazon window shopping :)
