You Wouldn't Want to be a Slave in Ancient Greece
Seized by slave traders, separated from your native tribe, your family and friends, you are put up for sale in the slave market. Your life will be spent fetching and carrying, and pampering the egos of your masters. The household chores are back-breaking. You have no rights: you can't vote or take holiday or rest if you are ill. You really wouldn't want to be a slave in ancient Greece!
Great Greeks by Paul Perro
Here is a great collection of poems for kids, all about the Ancient Greeks. Written in a modern, lively style, these poems are fun to read but also historically accurate, so they are educational too. Charmingly illustrated, this book will appeal to children between the ages of 7 and 12 who are studying or interested in ancient history, as well as to parents of younger children looking for an alternative to the usual bedtime story picture books. "The genius Archimedes once had An idea that made him shout 'Eureka' He jumped out his bath, and ran down the path, Then ran about naked like a streaker!"
