The new copy listed here has beautiful, full-color pictures, but used copies will usually be different—the 1st edition Memoria (older copyright but same ISBN) has only black & white pictures.
The history of Greece is taught chronologically as students read short biographical sketches from Famous Men of Greece. The thirty chapters outline the lives of important figures from Greek history from Achilles to Alexander.
Your fourth or fifth graders should be able to read and enjoy the biographies independently, while older students can read them as well and not feel like they have been given something that is "babyish."
