My Review:
 If you are familiar with the author's If You Were Me and Lived In... series than you are well aware of how educational yet simple they can be. They take an unknown culture and give our child a "mini field trip". Well if you enjoy the series you will definitely enjoy the latest additions that have been made. The author has added some great books intended on teaching you about significant eras in history and time.

 In If You Were Me and Lived In.. Ancient Greece  your child will become familiar with the different aspects of Greek culture including the language that was spoken, the fact that the people of Greece worshiped all types of Greek gods and that the Greek people would do many things to honor these different Gods. From the coals in the fire pit never allowed to be put out to the fact that the reason their crops grew was because of the Greek goddess Demeter.

 A lot of what the people believed or did was very similar to the things that we do even today. During that time in ancient Greece boys were the ones that went to school not the girls they were the caretakers of the home and were lucky if they were ever able to read or write.

 So as you can see I have only touched the tip of the iceberg with this one. It is chocked full of interesting facts about this old, ancient land.
