I haven’t listened to Greek Myths by Jim Weiss yet, so I can’t give it a thumbs up or a thumbs down. However, my husband and Bruce really enjoyed listening to this cd on the way to a backpacking trip.
My husband said it tells about some of the labours of Hercules, but in a kid friendly way. Instead of Hercules doing penance for killing his six sons (eek!), he “did something bad to another man”. Okay, we’ll go with that.
Bruce and I will be listening to the cd again on the way to school this fall, and I will update my review. In the meantime, we’ve all had enough Greek myths for a while, and are ready to listen to something else. Susan Wise Bauer’s Story of the World Volume 2 audio CDs are coming any day now, and we are really excited to embark on that.
