Greek Mythology for Kids
Why Is Greek Mythology perfect for kids?
Greek mythology is the ultimate collection of myths—not only because the Greek myths are the most famous, but also because the Greeks were naturally storytellers. They are simultaneously entertaining and instructive as each myth contains life lessons to be learned. With every story the Greek imagination is on display: powerful gods, brave heroes, and deadly monsters. The Greek myths are the perfect portal into the world of myth.
Greek Mythology for Kids brings these stories to life. Kids can pick and choose a single story or read from beginning to end to experience the breadth of Greek mythology as a whole. Note: This page contains affiliate links.
These stories feature:
Powerful Gods The gods and goddesses of Greek mythology have incredible powers, and their constant squabbling forms the backdrop of many myths.
Brave Heroes The Greek heroes, such as Hercules, Atalanta, and Perseus, are brave and bold.
Magical Creatures The Greek myths are full of magical beasts from Medusa to the Minotaur to Pegasus and the Chimaera.
Life Lessons The Greek myths also teach valuable life lessons.
