Publisher Description:

World Myths and Legends retells tales from the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and the Americas. From the Greek myths to ancient epics like Gilgamesh and the trickster tales of Anansi the Spider, it helps readers think about why the same themes, characters, and events may show up in different parts of the globe.

All societies have their own myths and legends, but they're much more than just stories. Myths and legends tell us about a people's history, science, and cultural values-the things they knew, the things they believed, and the things they felt were important.

Along the way kids will also find lots of fun and interesting projects that let them experience the stories first-hand. World Myths and Legends unveils wonders of the ancient world as it takes readers on a fascinating adventure of mystery and imagination.

Category Description for Build It Yourself Series:

Hands-on activities are great for adding some fun to your learning, especially when it comes to an exciting subject like these different historical periods. Each book provides 25 or more hands-on building projects and activities that only require easy-to-find materials like drinking straws, spray paint, rope, newspaper, flour, foil, etc. Detailed step-by-step directions are given for each project. There are lists of materials needed and an estimated time it should take to finish each project, but there's much more to these books than just the activities. Each project is combined with historical facts, anecdotes, biographies, and trivia that somehow ties in with the project. Text boxes, captivating "Did You Know?" segments, and "Words to Know" sections (which define various historical terms) all come together to get the most educational value out of the fun hands-on projects in the books. Included are black and white illustrations and diagrams that add a lot of interest to the information. So, learn about Ancient Egypt as you build your own papyrus boat or bake some flatbread; become a pioneer out west as you construct replica sod houses, learn to cross stitch, and make your own butter; send secret coded messages and construct your own model Anderson shelter as you learn about WWII; sip homemade apple cider as you learn about colonial America and make your own yarn and cloth; and journey to medieval times as you make a model thatched roof, construct a mini trebuchet, create beautiful grails and stained glass, and so much more. With tons of fun projects and great information, these books are great supplements to any history study. Each book is 122 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
