The art, culture, and mythology of ancient Greece still exert powerful influences on modern civilization. This attractive and authoritative books opens up the fascinating world of the Greeks to young readers. A section of thematic trails begins the book, for children with an interest in a particular topic who may not be sure where to start in the A to Z entries. Each trail identifies the core entries for topics such as gods and goddesses, everyday life, or the Trojan War. Color-keyed icons beside the entries help readers follow the trail, while related topics are suggested to encourage browsing and wider reading. Thus the young reader gains confidence in using a reference book in an enjoyable way. Approximately two hundred fifty alphabetical entries-each illustrated in full color-survey the history, art, myths, culture, and everyday life of the ancient Greeks. For ages nine and up.
