    I loved reading this out loud after reading Black Ships Before Troy as an introduction to the stories of Homer for our ancient history study. Neither are a sit and read in one sitting picture book, but rather a kid friendly chapter book printed in picture book size to accommodate large sweeping illustrations. We read one chapter a day until completion as part of our first cycle of homeschooling on a Classical Education mixed with some Charlotte Mason ideals style. Kiddo is five and she was rivet [...]

    When Hoa recommended this book after reading it to her kids, I was a little skeptical, but thought we'd give it a try as a family read aloud. As it turns out, it was a great read! The boys had no problem following the story and really got into the whole adventure. They kept asking us to read it to them and also spent quite a bit of time paging through the book and analyzing the pictures. A great introduction to the ancient Greek epic poem. (Just a side note: we did a little on the spot editing a [...]

    I'm a huge fan of mythology, and during my years as a senior touring docent with the NCMA specialized in ancient civilizations (Greek, Roman, Egyptian). The Odyssey has long been one of my favorite stories, the long journey of Odysseus as he tries to return home after the long Trojan War. My son read this version for a book report, and I read along with him. This Kingfisher edition does the classic proud.

    Why: Hoa and Susan each read it to their 3 kids (ages 4ish-8ish) and it was well-received. Susan said she edited out a few more gruesome battle details, but that everyone was able too follow the stories.

    This is an brilliantly adapted version for children. Our homeschooled children loved it! While there are battles described, they aren't as gruesome as other versions out there. Our kids wanted to read the story again after finishing it.

    The Odyssey was a good book overall. Throughout the book Odysseus combines a mixture of his intelligence and strength in the many violent and unfortunate events for him; with a mixture of sadness.
