Book Review: Goddess Power

Goddess Power by Yung In Chae  PhD
Goddess Power: A Kids’ Book of Greek and Roman Mythology: 10 Empowering Tales of Legendary Women
by Yung In Chae PhD

4 out of 5 stars


These tales of Greek gods are rewritten and simplified for children, giving a broad overview of the legends that made Greek and Roman myths famous throughout the world. The stories of both Greeks and Romans are combined, instead of being told twice with different names.

The stories include the legends of Gaia, Rhea, Hera, Artemis, the Fates, Demeter, Athena, the Muses, Aphrodite, and Circe. Of course, the male gods and heroes are included as part of the stories too, but the main focus is on the ladies.
I loved the beautiful illustrations of each goddess, and the lovely colors and details in the artwork.
The writing is excellent, weaving a tapestry of olden times of magic and mayhem.
There is a pronunciation guide at the back of the book and a glossary of mythic creatures.

If you are interested in old myths, this book is an excellent introduction to these classic stories.
