Good storytellers can demand your attention by showing you new ways of looking at an old story. This book us a collection of famous Greek and Roman myths for ages 5 and above. Reading aloud to a child is a very stimulating process. It also inspires the child to read. Most adults feel that once a child has learnt to read by himself we can stop reading aloud to him. Research studies show that reading aloud to children improves their reading abilities and stimulates interest in reading. Many children do not know things we assume they know. Take for instance, the Trojan Horse or Poseidon, the God of the Sea. How did the words echo and narcissism become a part of the English usage? How did Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom and Poseidon, the God of the Sea compete to build a city in the world when the world had just begun?

The short introduction to each story, recommended reading time, and vocabulary and pronunciation guide are helpful to teachers.
