exploring in Ancient Greece, part I

Eyewitness Ancient Greece [Book]Our first pass through Mythology and Ancient Greece was a very brief.  We were visiting all the Ancient Peoples, reading a little history, watching a DVD, and then reading folktales, myths, historical fiction …etc.  Of course the highlight was Ancient Egypt as is for so many kids.  The complex cast of characters from Greek Mythology paled in comparison to simple joy of Mummies! 
But here we are building on those earlier foundations and what do you know? She loves Mythology.  I will need to take time finding more because the list below is not enough for her.  After we exhaust what we have here we will decide what specific direction & topics she wishes to explore further.
