This is a 15 session Literary Leaf for Mythologica by Stephen P Kershaw in which children begin by looking closely at the language associated with greek mythology before reading the myths themselves and looking at the different chracteristics of the gods.
We chose this book for a literary leaf as it links beautuifully to any studies on Greek Myths as part of a topic, theme ot historical study of Ancient Greece.
An illustrated encyclopaedia of Greek mythology like no other, Mythologica features startlingly beautiful and exquisitely otherworldly portraits of mythological characters in eye-popping colour from artist Victoria Topping and authoritative text from Classics scholar and Greek mythology expert Dr. Stephen Kershaw. Uncover the colourful lives of 50 powerful gods and goddesses, earth-dwelling mortals, and terrifying monsters as you journey back in time to ancient Greece. From the fearless Athena and her meddlesome ways to the brave and bold Odysseus and his remarkable journey home, discover why these incredible stories are still a part of our culture today.
