Gearing Up For Greece...at the Library
In just four weeks from today, my family and I will be headed to Greece for 9 days! It's been three years since my last international travel experience, and I'm itching to do it again. I've been interested in visiting Greece ever since the 5th Grade. That year, my teacher Ms. Zazlov would read to our class from the beautifully illustrated Greek Gods and Heroes after lunch every day. I was fascinated by Greek Mythology, and oh, did I want that book! My sweet mother drove us all over Southern California to find a bookstore that carried it. (Thanks Mom! Now, if only I could find it!) Well, it looks as if my little Ella, at only age 5, has developed a similar interest in Greek Mythology as well. We've got a copy of D'aulaire's Book of Greek Myths that she loves to have read to her. It gives me hope that she'll really be interested in the sights we will be seeing -- Athens and some of the Greek Islands! It should be a fun and exhausting trip...but we're very much looking forward to it.
