      A fun way to get your essential bits of history As a history teacher, I think just about all of history is fascinating - the cultural tidbits, the technology, the religious beliefs, the wars, the governments. It's all fascinating! Butnvincing my students is another matter entirely. This series does an excellent job of looking at history from an interesting point of view and showing why it was tough. The art is accessible and just cartoonish enough to not be one of those boring illustrations that [...]

      "You Wouldn't Want to Be a Slave in Ancient Greece" reveals the darker side of both life in particular in the ancient world and of the famous Greek democracy we all here so much about. This book uses a member of the Scythian tribe as an example of the slavery experience in ancient Greece. It helps to illustrate the lives of slaves using this one example, thus making it easier for students to relate to the slave existence. Also, the illustrations really help sell the story. Though using a school [...]

      This book was very interesting when I read it. It teaches children that slavery in Ancient Greece was brutal. This says a lot about Greeks in the Ancient times.

    4. Sandy on said:

      I sure have missed reading these books. So much information in 32 pages. It has wonderful illustrations by David Antram. These should be read by any kid doing reports for school and even for fun.

    5. Sarah on said:

      One of the best in the series. The extra information added at the end of the book is a bit unrelated to the actual book.

    6. Dolly on said:

      This is the fourth book we've read in the You Wouldn't Want To series. I like that they tackle serious historical events and show the not-so-nice side of human behavior, but in a somewhat humorous and tongue-in-cheek way. The book puts you as the reader into the center of the story, so you can imagine what life in those times was like.Life for a slave in ancient Greece was a difficult and often dangerous existence. Torn from family and treated as less than human, a household slave in Greece was [...]

      As an eighth grader who dislikes reading giant, boring, history books, I just adore how short and to the point this series is. This book is about a greek female who you play as. You were in a respected tribe until you and your family were captured. Throughout the book you learn how terrible a Greek slaves lived. It informs you on specific jobs slave did, ways you could be freed and what would lead to you being punished.If you are studying a history topic, I would recommend this book series to yo [...]

      This book is a really interesting way to find out about slaves in Greece. This story makes you the character and shows you all the hardships a slave went through in Greece. As the character, your family is split up and you are captured as a prisoner. You must go through the tedious tasks of pleasing your owner. It truly is a sad life to live in because you won't ever see your family ever again. I would recommend to people who are studying Greece and the people who lived in it's lifestyle.

    11. Duane on said:

      This is a wonderful series of books that let beginner readers understand important people and times in our past. Wonderful illustrations and basic writing makes this book easy to follow. You follow a mother as she becomes a slave in Ancient Greece. You get to see her daily routine and life of misery. Nothing glamorous for her! A nice read.

      I enjoyed how this book offers a glimpse of slavery in other countries and times. This is a chance to learn from history and to avoid repeating the horrible conditions of slavery.

      This book is good because not only does it educate children about Ancient Greece but it also shows then that slavery is bad.

      This is a great children's series, I just love them. This is a new edition with extra content.

      It's too bad that I died sadly in the book, but it is terrible how bad the Greeks treated the slaves. I liked the book.

    19. Teri on said:

      SO LONG!!! This has been my experience with most of the books in this series. Good idea but it should be half the length.
