About this deal

All the stuff she did was pretty cool, and really smart to make the daughters of that King cook him alive. O -- Oedipus: I loved how when he was asked the riddle he got the answer the first moment he was asked like the was adding a one and one and creating a two. Elimdeki bu baskı Yunan Mitleri'nin gençler için olan sadeleştirilmiş baskısı ve içinde birbirinden muhteşem çizimler var.

You won't regret it and you might want to continue to want to read more and more about Greek mythology. My copy is old (stolen from my elder brother, in fact; it was his first), taped back together, missing it's covers, and extremely well-loved. Now updated with a new cover and an afterword featuring never-before-published drawings from the sketchbook of Ingri and Edgar D’Aulaire, plus an essay about their life and work and photos from the family achive. Pronunciation of Greek names, since they in some cases came into English through the digestive tracts of Latin and Old French before landing in England in 1066, and in some cases are more modern borrowings, is wholly unpredictable by, well, any English speaker, let alone children.Yunan mitolojisinde ölümlüler Tanrılara nasıl tapıyorsa Tanrılarda Toprak Ana'ya öyle saygı gösteriyorlardı çünkü Toprak Ana bütün hayatın kaynağıydı. I would sit cross legged right on the floor by the bottom shelf where it was kept, spread out the huge, thick book on my lap and read while I looked at the wonderful drawings. For example, in the story of the overthrow of Uranus, mention is made of the fateful sickle, and of Cronos's attack upon his father, but the exact nature of the attack is unspecified. I found this gem, considering she did not have any other audio books that I found and my ancient car only takes cassettes.

In a relaxed and humorous tone, these splendid artists bring to life the myths that have inspired great European literature and art through the ages, creating a book readers of all ages will cherish.Kids don't always love what their parents love, however, so I put it on his shelf and waited for him to discover it.

The couple immigrated to the United States from Europe and worked on books that focused on history such as Abraham Lincoln, which won the 1940 Caldecott Medal. As a kid I read constantly (probably 4-5 books a week), and this was one of my favorite books to re-read. Born Ingri Mortenson in Kongsburg, Norway, she studied art in Norway, Germany and France, and met Edgar Parin d'Aulaire when she was a student in Munich.So like a handful of hydra teeth I'll just plant this on the family bookshelf and wait for mythological magic to take root in due time.

Kids can lose themselves in a world of myth and magic while learning important cultural history in this beloved classic collection of Greek mythology. The drawings, particularly the full-page ones in this oversized volume, are excellent and excitingly evocative. Everyone, no matter what his or her age, should read this indispensable retelling of the Greek Myths, a foundation stone of the Western tradition. This classic introduction to Greek mythology for children, written and illustrated by the husband-wife team, is divided into three main sections. This book instilled me with a great love of mythology and classical antiquity that I still have to this day.

Here are the greats of ancient Greece—gods and goddesses, heroes and monsters—as freshly described in words and pictures as if they were alive today. D -- Dionysus: He is a cool god; I like how he is the god of wine, and I like how he doesn't want to hurt the pirates who attack him, and how he not only makes wine, but grows vines of grapes to make wine.
