D'Aulaire's Book of Greek Myths

Somebody recommended this book to me a while back in response to a bleg post (which I can't seem to find at the moment). Can I just take a moment to give some Llama mega-yips! of thanks for the tip? I've been reading it to the seven year old practically every night for a couple weeks and she is positively enthralled. We've already been all the way through the cycle and are now working our way back, touching on her favorite stories. Even more encouraging, she is also reading the book to herself.

Oh, and in the "apples don't fall far from the tree" department, the gel has become quite the expert on how Disney screwed up the story of Hercules. My work may not be done here, but it is definitely yielding results.

Your problem was letting the girl watch the Disney version of Hercules. Such travesties are not permitted in our house.

Hooray! That was one of my favorites growing up. And say, did they like Blueberries for Sal?

Yes, indeed.

Ohmigosh!! **I** remember that book! I used to read and re-read and re-re-read it when I was your Llama-ette's age!

It is sooo good to see that the "classics" of my childhood are still around.

Of course, you realize that now you've made me feel old [stern, reproving frown]...
