How did we name our planets? What about the days of our week? Months of the year? This is a collection of mythologies from the Greek, Egyptian, and Norse traditions. It has been written with the average middle-school student in mind. (So the gory, disgusting, and socially objectionable parts of these stories have been edited to make them more appropriate for kids.) It has been used in the public school setting as the text for a semester-length elective class for 5th through 8th grade students.
