No one could have predicted the marvels of art, literature, science, and philosophy that Greece would produce from 550 to 300 BC. But many of those accomplishments are represented in this well-researched, educational coloring book. The collection includes more than 40 expertly rendered illustrations depicting many aspects of Greek life and culture: the building of the Parthenon, a performance of Oedipus Rex, the Olympian games, the trial of Socrates, a torchlight wedding procession, Aristotle tutoring the young Alexander of Macedonia, and many more. With an introduction and detailed captions for each illustration, this book offers a fun way to learn about how life was lived 2,500 years ago in the cradle of Western civilization.
