This book is everything I hoped it would be, and more. I fell in love with the author before I even finished reading the introduction. After pre-reading the first story, I immediately went and ordered his other compilations, "Classics to Read Aloud" and "More Classics to Read Aloud" because I was just so impressed with this book. We have since read several myths and my fairly sensitive 5 year old is having no trouble with the content so far and is literally begging for more when we finish each story. Read aloud time is definitely our favorite time of day right now! If you want to introduce your children to Greek/Romance myths, this is definitely the book to start with.
