Ancient Greeks by Liza Phipps, Avril Thompson

History Showtime brings a fresh new approach to history, combining essential learning with the fun of drama and music. History Showtime: Ancient Greeks looks at who the ancient Greeks were and describes their everyday life, such as what they ate, what they wore and their beliefs. Alongside this key information are four songs, unique to this series, which bring the facts to life. At the end of the book is a simple playscript for children to act out, which explores a famous Greek myth.


A good introduction to aspects of the cultural life of the Ancient Greeks. School Librarian
