Book Review - Mini Myths: Play Nice, Hercules!
About the Book
Hercules is not as interested in “playing nice” as he is in playing strong! But when one feat of strength destroys his little sister’s 12-piece tower, he must use his powers for good to restore the tower and seek her forgiveness. She forgives him indeed, and then shows her own strength by gleefully knocking down the stacked blocks herself! Joan Holub’s expertly focused text pairs perfectly with Leslie Patricelli’s famously humorous illustrations. Includes a summary of the original Hercules’s Twelve Labors myth at the end.
My Take on the Book
This was a cute story that brought the myth of Hercules 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 one things that was fun about this, was that I can honestly say I never knew how much of a mess Hercules could make! :-)
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!
