Greek Mythology (Junior Genius Guides) by Ken Jennings –ADVISABLE

Jennings, Ken Greek Mythology (Junior Genius Guides) 176 pgs, HMH Books for Young Readers; 2014. $18.99 Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G Violence: G
Everything young students might want to know about Greek Mythology. Its presented in a little school day 'period' chapters, including quizzes, homework and accomplishment certificate. Its filled to the brim with quirky little illustrations that help make things more interesting. The content is perfect for an upper elementary enthusiast and the guide is completely comprehensive.
This is very fun read and is one step more challenging than the basher guides that the second and third graders love. This author has a talent for making the content interesting and telling complex stories in an understandable way. If this book had an index, I would say it would be a go-to guide for your school. Its got tons of cover appeal and is sure to be enjoyed by mythology enthusiasts.
