Alpha Is For Anthropos
This book is a unique introduction to Ancient Greek and Greek vase painting for all ages. The text consists of twenty-four original nursery rhymes in Ancient Greek to be sung to familiar tunes. Each poem or song aims to teach a basic Greek vocabulary word while placing it in a broader cultural and linguistic context. The illustrations amplify the meanings of the words and songs with evocative allusions to Greek mythology and the world of Greek vase painting. This book is a treasure trove for anyone, child or adult. By Therese Sellers and Lucy Bell Jarka-Sellers. Ascanius Books. 56 pages.
