“Once our imaginations are opened, they can never again be closed.”
This book is really neat! I would use it in a classroom when learning about mythical creatures or incorporating creative ideas!
Poetry. This book is yet another reverse poem book read by Marilyn Singer. This book of poems can be a great introduction for Greek mythology! The poems are very silly and easy to keep children‘s attention. Each poem tells a different point of view as the poem is told twice. Original myths and legends can be perceived differently after reading each version of the poem. The illustrations set a tone throughout the book as certain colors are used.
Thoroughly enjoyable retelling of a selection of Greek myths, particularly those dealing with the creation of the gods and the explanations for natural phenomena. I particularly liked his digressions into the meaning of Greek and Latin words and how we can see many of those words in modern English.
✨I might have a small obsession with Greek mythology, but uhhh... this is Hera. 😍 I decided that Athena, Nyx, and Perseus needed a little sister. She enjoys sleeping, whining, chewing on bookmarks, and the occasional book sleeve when the urge arises.
