Greek Legends Apr 28, 2008
We started off getting one of this series for a vacation. Now we have collected eight more for any and all trips in the car, and for our enjoyment at home. I put this in when asking the kids to help with chores and clean their room. We love the Greek Legends one. I have a very old set of the Junior Classics books that I got at a Half-Price Books many years ago. Listening to this has made my kids want to read the Myths and Legends volume (Number 3). I think they are learning and enjoying learning.

Wonderful stories. Good choice for anyone looking to introduce the Greek legends to children, and good for those who just love to hear a good, enthralling story.
Tales from the Greek Legends by Edward Ferrie May 20, 2007
I bought this audioook for our girls (aged 7 and 9) to listen to on long journeys. We enjoy listening to it also and it certainly does make the journeys more bareable. Our 7 year old particularly loves this audiobook, in her words "it's brilliant. I love Jason and the Argonauts best." I feel it's better than simply watching a DVD all the time. At least they are using their imaginations to visualize the images and they are often inspired to sit and draw what they have imagined. I heartily recommend this audiobook. We also enjoyed The Groovy Greeks by Terry Deary from his Horrible Histories series. Although Deary has a much more comical and irreverant take on history, he's still very informative and educational.
Great music and classic tales well told. Jan 15, 2007
I bought the Tales of the Greek Legends for my children when they were only 5 and 7. They are now 14 and 16 and they still love these stories. I highly recommend this version of the Greek Myths.
