Hide-and-Seek History: Ancient Greeks.
By Jonny Marx. Illus. by Chaaya Prabhat
Apr. 2024. 12p. Tiger Tales/360 Degrees, $19.99 (9781944530426). Gr. 3–6. 938
This attractive and information-packed treat has something for readers interested in ancient
cultures, mythology, math, and more. After an introduction to ancient Greece generally, some of
the treasures that have been found there, and notable archaeologists from diverse backgrounds,
spreads cover such topics as “Gods and Goddesses,” “Heroes and Heroines,” and early thinkers
and their works. Older readers are by now used to picture-book presentations of nonfiction, but
here they’ll find something extra: the spreads feature large and small flaps, and flaps within flaps,
so that each double-page spread has as much as several pages would in a typical picture book.
While for report purposes the tidbits of information are best used as springboards to deeper
research in other titles, browsers will delight in finding all the flaps and the compelling facts they
hide. A book with moving parts likely won’t last as long as a regular title when it comes to
circulation, and there are no notes or bibliography (there is a time line), but otherwise this is
worth the purchase for school and public libraries.
