We received this book to give an honest review.
We have read the series If You Were Me and Lived in..... and K and I have found them to all be very enjoyable. Now with this story I was wondering where it would go and what we would learn and I can say that we actually learned a lot of very interesting facts in this book. I love anything to do with Greece so I was very happy to read this book to K so he could learn a little bit more about how it was to live in Greece back in 350 B.C.. Now I will say this, this book has a lot more information that her other series does and a lot more sentences as well. So it is not just a quick read through. We got to learn about a few Gods and Goddess and there is a picture of what they looked like. Just like in her other books at the end is a glossary for some of the words that are within the book to help you understand what they mean.
If you enjoy reading about Ancient Greece I highly suggest you read this book the illustrations are really good and go with the setting of the book.
