The Golden Days Of Greece Reviews
I first read this book when homeschooling my daughter. I was looking for a book that would bring every day life in Greece to life in an interesting but not dumbed down way. Even in elementary school, I refused to allow my family to be dumbed down in education. This book fit the bill. I knew it would when I plucked it from the shelf and sat down at the table and read the whole thing right then and there over the period of 2 hours, completely losing track of time. My daughter devoured it as well when we got it home, unable and unwilling to wait to read it. I have labeled it both a children's book and a YA book because it captures the reader so much, it is good for anyone, even adults like me. Olivia Coolidge's writing flows and is so conversational, you are learning without realizing it. Instead, you are entranced by ancient Greece and are there without knowing quite how you got there.If you see anything written by Olivia Coolidge- grab it, read it. You are in for a treat.
Easy fun read. Don't imagine it was intended for adults. I'll probably keep it for my nephews.
