Myths and Legends,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heroes, or Greek Fairy Tales for My Children (Kindle Edition)
I remember vividly Latin lessons in school when my teacher would give us exciting renditions of Greek and Roman myths and legends. She had a wonderful style of delivery and made the stories of old come alive, pointing to ancient places on a large map on the wall and gesticulating wildly. When I saw this book I couldn't wait to relive those memories but unfortunately they didn't leap to life the way they did in the classroom. Don't get me wrong, they are well written but they just couldn't compete with the gifted storyteller that was my old Latin teacher.
If you want to read about the myths and legends of old or even introduce them to your children then this is a nice collection to do it with. I'll just have to read them again, this time with the imagined voice-over of my old teacher.
