Great supplement for Mythology lesson plan Apr 18, 2009
I'm deligted with this series. So often I have used movies to supplement my lesson plans on Greek Mythology. This audio challenges the listener to use his/her imagination to picture the scenes. The music and the dramatic reading makes the lessons more entertaining.
Naxos CD of the Tale of Troy Mar 22, 2009
There are many interesting renditions the Odyssey, but I was struggling to find one about the Trojan War for my 6 year old. While this CD is probably better for a 7 or 8 year old (in that he doesn't "love" it and ask for it over and over like he did for MP Osborne's Odyssey) he did listen all the way through and asked good questions periodically about who was who, so I know he listened. The recording is clear, and the text complex enough I enjoyed it. I'll be keeping it for kiddo to "discover" when he is a little older.
Addendum: A year later, at 7, kiddo does ask to hear the whole thing through. He's listened to it a dozen times. I am very pleased with it.
