Let's go to the Acropolis

45 pages

This short guide for children, written by Aliki Ammerman, is a must for families or teachers who want to visit the Acropolis. It's packed with historical information and includes more than 18 activities to hold any child's interest during his visit. A time line, Who's Who, and bibliography complete the book.

We used this guide as a textbook for our fieldtrip to the Acropolis for many years. Our students learned the basic facts, and enjoyed the activities. We became scholars and not just 'tourists.' This revised edition continues to be child-friendly, comfortable, and accessible.

Cheryl Makris, former fifth grade teacher, American Community Schools of Athens, Greece.

Let's go to the Acropolis is an eye-catching guide for young students and their teachers alike. Many who visit the Acropolis have no real idea what they are looking at. This user-friendly guide sheds light on ancient Athens and brings the columns, carvings, and temples to life.

Matthew Plain, sixth and seventh grade teacher, International College, Beirut, Lebanon.

Thanks for letting me know about your book I just bought one! It looks perfect for my upcoming trip.

Brian Karas, book illustrator, New York

What a wonderful book! We'll be going to Athens in a week or so, and really want to engage our 11 year old-- ancient Greece is part of her 6th grade curriculum for the coming year. I've enjoyed reading the book, thanks for making history more accessible for kids.

Peggy Aoki, California

Your book is wonderful and very helpful in putting everything into perspective for an 11 year old.

Mary Donaldson, Scottsdale, AZ

I really liked your book a lot. It was a lot of help for me understanding my project.'

'...your book made sense of all the information that I have been reading from the encyclopedia and internet sites.'' 'I really meant what I said, your book was a big help in learning about the Acropolis.

It looks great!!! I will use this to teach my kids in advance about Athens, I believe this will make the experience more interesting and valuable to them. It is great to see kids' books written about historical places.

Lydia Stevenson, Poland

We had a fabulous time in Greece and really loved taking our "Let's Go" book to the Acropolis with us. Our group of friends hired a guide, but it was hard to hear her among the crowds, and since we had already read thru the book with our daughter, she was excited to look for the things she remembered (Athena's olive tree, especially). Your book made our day trip to the Acropolis especially memorable! I hope you do one for Ancient Olympia sometime, too!

Peggy Aoki, California

This is great! My children and I are very excited to be visiting Greece for the first time, and your book will be a very helpful and entertaining resource.

Kathleen Kartsonis, NJ, USA
