Publisher Description:

Vivid portrayal of the civic and home life of children in Athens during the reign of Pericles, when the art and architecture of ancient Greece were at their height. Through the eyes of Duris, son of the architect Phorion, and Hiero, son of the sculptor Hermippos, we experience the Greek culture of the times as we accompany them on their journey from home to market-place, wonder at the Acropolis, visit schools and studios, observe festivals, and participate in the Olympic games.

Category Description for Our Little Cousin Series:

These "living book", unabridged reprintings of early 1900's stories are sure to appeal to history buffs-or just about any adventure lover. Highlighting ancient cultures, each "little cousin" introduces a character from a different culture and time: the Athenians, the Franks, Celts, Crusaders, and more. In our home, we had difficulty finding simultaneously challenging and appealing, yet appropriate books for strong readers of these ages. These books cover historical concepts like raids and wars, but appropriately. Visually, I found the books appealing; the font is a good size and there is proper spacing between lines. Occasional black and white drawings emphasize the text. A preface written directly to the reader and phonetic aid for name pronunciation helps young readers dig in and enjoy. Note that the 1900's vernacular and writing style hasn't been changed, but this fact does not significantly hinder reader accessibility. Approx. 100 pp each, sc. ~ Ruth
