Ancient Greece

The books that Sonlight uses in Core B that look to deal with ancient Greece are:
A Child’s History of the World
The Usborne Book of World History
Usborne Time Traveler
Greek News
Usborne Greek Myths
There might also be a bit in:
The Usborne Book of Houses and Homes
The Usborne Book of Peoples of the World

Books I’ll be adding for ancient Greece are:

Hands-on:

Usborne Sticker Dressing Long Ago (Megan Cullis)
Hands and Hearts History kit (http://handsnhearts.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=4#.UYRWtrXpa7w) This kit is for both Greece and Rome.

Read-alouds (some of these may actually work as readers):
Jason and the Argonauts (Jessica Gunderson)
Lysis Goes to the Play (Caroline Snedeker)
Adventures in Ancient Greece (Linda Bailey, Good Times Travel Agency series)
Pegasus (Mayer)
The First Marathon: The Legend of Pheidippides (Reynolds)
Aesop’s Fables (Santore)

Readers:
The Town Mouse and the Spartan Mouse (Deary)
The Tortoise and the Hare (Deary)
The Boy Who Cried Horse (Deary)
The Lion’s Slave (Deary)

If you’re doing Core B with an older child (8 or so) you might want to add this:
