Book Review - Mini Myths: Be Patient, Pandora!
About the Book
When Pandora is warned by her mother not to open a box, her spirited curiosity trumps her obedience. Pandora harmlessly touches the box, innocently leans on the box, and eventually, albeit accidentally, bursts the box open! The cupcakes that were hidden inside are ruined, except for one last vestige, which Pandora presents in the hope that her mother still loves her. Leslie Patricelli’s depictions of this physical comedy bring a lively narrative to Joan Holub’s carefully crafted text. Includes a summary of the original Pandora’s Box myth at the end.
My Take on the Book
This was a cute story that brought the myth of Pandora into the present. What was great was that it allowed a child to not only learn some about greek mythology, but it also shared a moral for a child. The book was a quick and easy read, with great colors and images. The board book was heavy duty and is perfect for small hands!
