Share It Saturday- D'Aulaire LOVE!

My Terrifically Great Thing to share this week is D'Aulaires's Greek Myths on CD and D'Aulaire's Norse Myths.

We've had D'Aulaire's Greek Myths in book form for years and read it this fall (again) for Memoria Press's Famous Men of Greece studies. Regardless of knowing the stories, the kids are still mesmerized by the re-telling. Various actors read different chapters, which makes it that much more enjoyable! It is very well done- the kids and I are loving it. Good thing, too, because CD listening is going to be ramped up again this spring!

We also added D'Aulaire's Norse Myths to the bookshelf this Christmas- actually it hasn't hit the shelves yet because the kids are too busy reading it! Great stuff as they see influencers from Norse Mythology in some of their favorite YA books (think Tolkien).

What's new in your educational life?

Hi! I just popped over from Trivium Tuesdays. I have to say I LOVE D'Aulaire! We used these books for years while my kids were in the younger grades (elementary and middle school), and I couldn't agree with you more on this one!

OOOHHH Books on CD!! I love books on CD, and I didn't know these were available!! We've worn through two copies of Greek Myths, so I'd LOVE to find these, thank you!

I don't know anyone who doesn't love them. And the CD version is GREAT!

Oh! I'll save these for future reference! Thanks for the recommendation. What age level are they for? Would it be appropriate for younger children to listen to? I'm so happy to see people coming over from Trivium Tuesdays =) Thanks for linking this up!
