Excerpts from the e-mail and notes we have received about The Story of the Greeks:
“Since we already carry a number of books about Greece for children, we had to ask ourselves, ‘Why another book?’ What we realized is that most of our material is based on the mythology and doesn’t actually cover much history. The Story of the Greeks does. It is simply the most in-depth and readable look at Greece we have yet seen for the age group, keeping mythology to a minimum and giving a fuller look at the events throughout the rest of Grecian history. Plus, it offers some very helpful extras, such as a timeline of events, and a great list of additional suggested reading.”
– Eli Evans, Exodus Books
“I thank you for your Guerber history reprints; the children and I are halfway through The Story of the Greeks and are finding it a satisfying and memorable read. I’ve had many interesting questions and great narrations!”
– Cath H.
“We are having a fabulous time with Guerber’s The Story of the Greeks –my non-book worm, non-history loving son settles down happily with it….”
– Vicki S.
“I received my book yesterday [The Story of the Greeks]; it is everything I had hoped. Now I just can’t wait to teach our Greek section!! … Thank you for the wonderful book.”
– Sonia F.
“As a college history major and someone who traveled through Greece, I really wanted to impart a base of knowledge of the classical world and a love of history to my young children. This book, The Story of the Greeks, has been an excellent tool. H. A. Guerber really captured the essence of storytelling and the love of history in this book. My little girl has now been sufficiently exposed to the richness of western tradition and I’m very satisfied. I highly recommend this book, even to adults, as thorough and enjoyable.”
– Joe K.
“The author makes history interesting by treating it as a story of important figures and events. The language is easy to comprehend and the pace is quick. It is written nothing like the tediously mind- numbing textbooks of modern classrooms. My children (5 & 7) come to me daily asking to have this book read to them.”
– Dean R.
“We have The Story of the Greeks and Romans and just love them!”
– Laura Y.
