I love this book. This is the source of my love of Greek and Roman myths. The illustrations are beautiful, and all the main myths are included. ( )

The D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths is an outstanding introduction to Greek Mythology. It will catch the attention of all readers, big and small. It is an incredibly comprehensive retelling of the old stories. Students will long remember the gods and all of their ancient Greek world. Possible side effects might include telling people facts about mythology that they did not ask for, correcting Greek pronunciation, and raiding library shelves for other books on ancient myths. Beware. ( )

I can't even guess how many times I read this when I was a kid. I haven't read it since, but I loved it so much at the time. I should probably buy my own copy for nostalgia's sake, if nothing else. (Plus, the illustrations are great.) ( )
