Kids love Greek mythology books. Greek myths get growing readers reading both nonfiction and fiction which is skill-building and enriching. The nonfiction mythology books on this list often motivate kids to challenge themselves to read more difficult texts than they normally would. Get to Work, Hercules! Hades narrates the TRUE stories with panache. Apparently, his younger brother Zeus is a big fat liar and edited all the myths to make himself look good.
Four good-hearted monsters repeatedly save the day by concocting clever ways to foil the schemes of their evil families and schoolmates. Happily, Will, Mina, Brian, and Linda—respectively, a shy ghost, a vampire who prefers beet juice to blood, a brainy zombie, and a curse-reversing witch — rise to every challenge by putting their heads and magical powers together. Bardin adds a zany element to the well-leaded narrative with daffy cartoon illustrations… Hoena tucks sufficient tongue-in-cheek references into the narrative to keep older readers amused, should they happen upon the book. Hades and the Underworld: The Underworld is the land of the dead and ruled by the powerful god Hades. You will need to cross the River Styx and face the three-head dog Cerberus.
