Oh, Dearest Mother, Sweetest Virgin of Altagracia, our Patroness. You are our Advocate and to you we recommend our needs. You are our Teacher and like disciples we come to learn from the example of your holy life. You are our Mother, and like children, we come to offer you all of the love of our hearts. Receive, dearest Mother, our offerings and listen attentively to our supplications. Amen.

The Gods and Goddesses of Olympus

I thought this is one of the best books on the topic I've seen in ages. It starts at the beginning of the world (as per Greek myth) and goes on to explain who is who and how they all got there. Lots of info but not overwhelming.... you can easily read it in one sitting with older kids.

I have always liked mythology, but in my avid junior high reading, I somehow missed a lot of the background that is presented here.

The pictures are colorful and interesting- very well done, imo.

Aliki, myths, ancient Greece, gods and goddesses
