I HATED Greek Myths as a kid (thought they were boring Greek soap operas), but my children (ages 4 and 7) and I really love these stories. These stories appeal on multiple levels -- fantasy and action for the kids and the illumination of "life lessons" for the adults. The author helpfully puts some of the "life lessons" in plain English, which is of benefit to us sleepy parents who don't want to have to read between the lines of ancient metaphor. It's amazing how these Greek myths really do illustrate the timeless patterns in human nature and our interactions that we see all around us today. The narrator is very enjoyable to listen to, and the stories are told simply without becoming simplistic.

If you could sum up The Beautiful Stories of Life in three words, what would they be?
The tales are slightly more neutral than the originals, less blame, less bad guy, more like life. A great version for today's children!
