Synopsis

Myths & Legends by Peter D. Riley

Topics covering stories, myths, fables, fairytales, and legends never fail to catch the imagination of children. This CD-ROM focuses on providing resources to help teach Myths and Legends from many different cultures and time periods in a fun and engaging way. Importantly, this book focuses on how to make sure that any project (from one lesson to a whole week) covers multiple subjects across the curriculum. This CD-ROM includes images, video, music, and IWB slideshows covering the following themes: 1. Myths and legends around the world (general outline of creatures of myth and legends as established by different peoples); 2. Places in the story (fantasy lands to lands where it may have happened); 3. People in the story (good, bad, fairies, goblins, ghosts); 4. Animals in the story (lions, horses, monsters); 5. Actions in the story (illustrating various motives and lessons to be learnt); 6. Ancient Greek myths and legends (famous stories and characters); 7. The Americas and Africa (examples of peoples, animals and monsters, and lessons to be learnt); 8. Europe, Asia and Australia (examples of peoples, animals and monsters, and lessons to be learnt); 9. Local Myths and legends (using local archives and storytellers)

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

Helen Swinyard – Heartlands High

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

Pippa, Jack, Liam & Matthew Wils

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!
