D’Aulaire’s Book of Greek Myths

In Things I Plan To Buy For My Children on September 23, 2008 at 1:00 pm

D'Aulaire's Book of Greek Myths

When I have kids this is the first thing I am buying for them. In fact I might go buy it for them NOW. This book changed my life. I think it is important to teach the Classics at an early age because it separates the wheat from the chaff, so to speak. That is, you can teach your kids about the constructed Western canon while Having Fun, and who cares that you’re being called a ‘geek’ and a ‘nerd’ when you’re having fun? Everyone! [shh.]
