Ancient Greek Pottery Disguised as Fun
What a fun little book to add to your library or an ancient Greek, art, vocabulary, mythology unit. Each page shows a color photo of ancient pottery pieces with high-contrast artwork. Captions explain who is on the pottery and the story. Pronunciation help guides you with those tricky names: Chimera (kye-MIHR-uh) and Dionysus (dye-oh-NYE-suss), for example. Along the bottom of each page is a short, rhyming line that can be read aloud: Horse gallop. Aphrodite rides. The Chimera looks. Dionysus glides. The pottery characters’ cute little text bubbles make you laugh! Each page has a hidden image, making you want to read again and again! The back explains each image, if a student wants to do more research. Not reproducible. 8.25”x 8.25”, 32 pgs, pb. ~Sara
