About the Author:

Dr Jen Green worked in publishing for 15 years and is now a full-time writer who has written over 200 books for children, on geography, the environment, history, natural history, and other subjects. Her Heinemann-Raintree title on Sustaining Our Natural Resources was selected in 2011 for the Junior Library Guild's SLJ Curriculum Levels program.

From Booklist:

With a cover as exclamation-point heavy as a newsstand magazine begging for attention, this book in the Hail! History series promises a celeb profile (“Alexander!”), “Secrets of the Athletes!” (Olympics), and even vacation tips (“See the Acropolis before you die!”). The inside doesn’t get any less frenetic while discussing Greece’s golden age—around 500 BCE—and what made it so golden. Topics touch on gods and goddesses, landmarks, politics, arts, health, home life, trade, athletics, philosophy, and warfare. It’s certainly a lot to cover in 32 pages, but the large trim size allows for several boxes, splashes, illustrations, and other chunk-sized morsels to jostle for attention on each spread, and it also keeps things from becoming too claustrophobic. Kids aren’t likely to get a completely coherent picture of ancient Greece, but for a fun package to slip in some historical and cultural learning, look no further. For an irreverence overload, pair this series with Scholastic’s Mythlopedia titles. A glossary and additional resources conclude. Grades 3-6. --Ian Chipman
