Reviewed with Stewart Patrick's The Original Olympics.
Gr. 4-7. The Olympics, mythology, even the modern-day alphabet find their roots in Ancient Greece. Each volume in the Ancient Greece series explores a different facet of life, from eating habits to the war to deities. On nearly every page, photographs of pottery and artwork from the time, drawings of what life may have been like, and maps enhance the detailed text. The attractively designed volumes use fictional narratives (a tale of a young girl's first visit to Athens or an account of a day at the Olympic games) to convey some details and make the reading more appealing than straight factual presentations often are. The books, good additions to both school and public library shelves, include a useful time line and suggestions for further readings (adult and children's). For beginning research projects as well as pleasure reading. Other volumes in the series are included in the Series Roundup in this issue. Heather Hepler
