Greek Myths

It's been days that i want to write about an amazing theater performance
and i've realised that next week it's coming to an end (unless it gets an extention).
So if you are in Athens these days, here is what you can do with your child and have a great time together!
Theseus and Ariadne on the island of bulls is a very impressive theater performance.
Greek mythology is so reach and full of imagination with countless myths but one of the most famous is Theseus and the Minotaur.
We went last March with friends and my son still talks about it, i was very impressed too. I have nothing but good words to say about the actors. Costumes and sets were amazing and  the whole production was very attentive

Nevertheless if you don't manage to go i have also another suggestion in order to get your kid familiar with the ancient Greek myths.
Papadopoulos publications have created this series for little kids regarding Greek myths, with simple lyrics and funny illustration. At the end of the book there are also activities for children of preschool and first elementary age.

Either way, i hope you enjoy your weekend!


An old book and some new ones

This is, as far as i remember, my first book in english, my godmother gave it to me as a present when i was in elementary school. It was my favourite because of the beautiful illustration. The years went by but i kept it and a few months ago i was still browsing it with my son which he also likes it a lot. 

We say a few words in English but we mainly do conversations about the several themes that has in it, for example the seaside, the kitchen, the garden, the farm, the country, clothes, professions etc. and it's that he likes the most.

After all these years the book is damaged and i thought i could search for a new one. Although the Greek publishing company which had brought it doesn't exist anymore i've searched directly for the British one. 
The Usborne books are my favourites and there is a vast range of wonderful books for every age (baby to Young Adult).

I was very happy to find my favourite book again updated.
Since my son loves stickers i bought the one with the stickers and i couldn't resist and bought some others too 



A few days ago i was in a book shop and it was a pleasant surpise to find out that Patakis Publications brought some Usborne Books in Greece. You can find some in english here and some fun books in this section.
Enjoy the moments you read books with your little ones!
