“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.
#BookReport A bit more reading time this week. I finished and reviewed West Coast & A Lost Lady & I also finished 2 bedtime romances (not worth naming). I'm about 2/3s through Mythos which is more consistently entertaining than Bullfinch's version of the stories, but I doubt that I'll do any better at remembering them. Made a start on The Days of In Between. #WeeklyForecast finish those to and hopefully also finish There Was Still Love for #LMPBC
Started out a little slow but ended up a true page-turner that made me look forward to all of its bite-sized myths.
