The new National Geographic Treasury of Greek Mythology offers timeless stories of Greek myths in a beautiful new volume. Brought to life with lyrical text by award-winning author Donna Jo Napoli and stunning artwork by award-winning illustrator Christina Balit, the tales of gods and goddesses such as Zeus, Aphrodite, Apollo, and Athena and heroes and monsters such as Helen of Troy, Perseus, and Medusa will fascinate and engage children’s imaginations.
 
National Geographic completes the book with embellishments of each story: sidebars for each god, goddess, hero, and monster link the myths to constellations, geography, history, and culture to help young readers connect the stories to real life events, people, and places. A family tree and a “cast of characters” profile page help make relationships between the characters clear, and a mapping feature adds to the fun and fascination. Resource notes and ample back matter directing readers to more information round out this luminous book. Sure to dazzle all those intrigued with the fantastic tales of Greek mythology and enchant new readers, this vibrant book will soon become a family keepsake.

National Geographic supports K-12 educators with ELA Common Core Resources.

Great introduction to Greek mythology

Hardcover with dust jacket, great intro to Greek mythology for kids, bright and captivating illustrations, present for 8yo who's showing interest in Greek, Roman and Norse mythology. Highly recommend.

Good for an introduction

I ordered this for my son (10) who enjoys Greek mythology through reading Percy Jackson. I found it a little bland with no real new information and would be better suited to a younger reader. It would be better described as an introduction. If, like us, you've come from a Percy Jackson start and are trying to discern the fact from the fiction I'd suggest you look elsewhere. If it's your child's first introduction into Greek Mythology then it is full of colour, is easy to follow and would provide a good taster.
