Synopsis

Ancient Greece by Charles Kovacs

A retelling of Greek mythology and ancient history as recommended for Steiner-Waldorf curriculum Class 5-6 (age 10-12). This welcome new addition to Charles Kovacs' work contains legendary stories of mythical heroes and historic figures from the dawn of western civilization. Through the fearless deeds of Heracles, Theseus and Odysseus to the Golden Age of Athens and the conquests of Alexander the Great, the narrative vividly portrays the journey from the mysteries of antiquity to the birth of modern medicine, science and philosophy.

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
