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:


Usborne Sticker Dressing Long Ago (Megan Cullis)
Hands and Hearts History kit ( 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)

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:
