Explore 10 classic Greek myths in this richly illustrated app
Publisher: Paul Hudson

Why we love this app

Paul Hudson (who has curated many of our recommended Latin language apps) presents this app on Greek mythology, containing thorough re-tellings of ten classic legends: Pandora's Box, Hades and Persephone, Perseus, King Midas, Heracles, Theseus, Daedalus and Icarus, Orpheus, the Trojan War, and Odysseus.

What it teaches and how it works

First, the users read through the well-written summary narratives of the stories. After this, a word search, letter match quiz, and a "retell it" game. The word search and retell games aid in rote memorization of key characters and narrative, while the letter match elaborates with term definitions. The game center keeps record of achievements, such as reading through all myths and correctly completing all quizzes.

Why your kid won't be able to put it down

Though Classical purists may be critical of the comic book-style artwork that is very much a departure from the traditional representations of the gods and goddesses, there's no denying that the illustrations are well done and vivid. A dramatic soundtrack also sets the tone for these epic tales, further providing an engrossing study of mythology.
