Hide and Seek History: The Greeks

Publisher: Little Tiger

Ancient Greek civilisation began in approximately 800BCE and its impact on our current world is still very much in evidence, from the system of democracy to great works of Greek art, philosophy and literature. In this epic book, Marx and Prabhat explore the tales of the gods and goddesses of Ancient Greece, its heroes and heroines, such as Heracles, its scientific creations, such as astronomy and zoology, what life was like in Ancient Greece, and much more.

Because the format of the book incorporates large flaps, there’s actually a lot of information here, broken down into digestible chunks that are ideal for middle primary school readers. Prabhat’s illustrations are super appealing and colourful and this is a real joy of a “dip in and out” book for kids with short attention spans, who might appreciate the interactive flaps too.
