And in the Percy Jackson spirit, here are some pictures from our Heroes Bold From Days of Lore program that I did today about the 12 Labors of Hercules:
Hercules grieves over an awful deed and finds out that he must serve his nasty, low-down, weakling cousin Eurystheus to make things right.
Hercules finds out about the Augean stables. P-YEWWW!!!!
Hercules dodges the three heads of Cereberus and puts his mighty arm around that massive dog's neck.
Do you know these stories? They're really exciting! You can find them in a good book of mythology, especially :
D'Aulaire's Book of Greek Myths by Ingri and Edgar Parin D'Aulaire--one of the best collections of Greek myths ever printed, with an especially section of the Labors of Hercules
Hercules--retold by Geraldine McCaughrean -a really good chapter book version of the story.
