The classical heritage continues to impact modern culture in many ways. This bibliography lists and describes those books on Greek and Roman mythology from the mid-19th century to the present which are useful for introducing children to the classical world. The volume begins with a brief history of children's books on classical mythology in the United States. A chapter then discusses the various techniques through which classical myths were adapted for children. The annotated bibliography follows, with each entry including a critical annotation on how closely the work adheres to the original myth. Each entry also includes an indication of the grade level of each book. Indexes allow the user to locate sources according to title, illustrator, time period, myth, and subject.
