“Ancient Greece: An age of marvelous myths, gone, but not forgotten. Heroes that rise and fall. Heroes that rise and fall, gone, but not forgotten. An age of marvelous myths: Ancient Greece.”
Enter the world of Ancient Greek mythology in Marilyn Singer’s third installment of reverso poems. Each myth is presented as a different type of poem, sometimes freeform and sometimes rhyming, but always able to be flipped upside down and still make sense. Not only will readers learn the different myths of Ancient Greece in poem form, but many myths also have accompanying footnotes for further explanation.
This book is recommended for students in grades 2-6 who enjoy mythology or poetry and wordplay. Be sure to also check out the author’s other fairy tale reverso offerings, Mirror Mirror and Follow Follow.
