Yesterday's Classics Ancient Greece books- which are your favorites?


Recommended Posts

Since we have the YC collection I would like to use them more with our history studies as read alouds. We are just finishing "Peeps at Many Lands: Ancient Egypt" and the kids are really enjoying it! So out of the following list if you have read any, which ones have been favorites?


A Wonder Book for Girls and Boys

Tanglewood Tales

Streams of History: Ancient Greece

The Story of Greece

Famous Men of Greece

The Story of the Greeks

The Odyssey for Boys and Girls

The Iliad for Boys and Girls

A Story of the Golden Age of Greek Heroes

Our Young Folks' Plutarch

The Children's Plutarch: Tales of the Greeks

Old Greek Folk Stories Told Anew

Gods and Heroes

Our Little Athenian Cousin of Long Ago

Our Little Spartan Counsin of Long Ago

Peeps at Many Lands: Ancient Greece

Men of Old Greece

Stories of the Ancient Greeks

Plutarch's Lives for Boys and Girls

Old Greek Stories

Favorite Greek Myths

Three Greek Children

Stories from Plato and Other Classic Writers

Stories of Old Greece

The Heroes


Ideally I would read them all, but I just don't see that happening:) So which ones would work well for younger children with the oldest being 9? Are there any you could see a 9 year old reading independentlyThanks so much!

For your ages, I would definitely read: Our Little Athenian Cousin of Long Ago, Our Little Spartan Cousin of Long Ago, Favorite Greek Myths, A Wonder Book for Girls and Boys and Tanglewood Tales.


Thank you! Many of those were on my radar. It is just so hard to narrow it down sometimes!
