“ . . . this little gem from Nomad Press is a great book for learning about Ancient Greece…The author’s enthusiasm jumps out of the page at you while you’re reading descriptions of Greeks and their culture…This book would also make a great basis for a co-op hands-on history class. Highly recommended!”

School Library Journal

The text is punctuated with fun fonts and sidebars that enrich the historical narrative of the text. Very fun activities make learning about this culture a great experience. This book a worthwhile addition to your library.”
