Myths of Ancient Greece by Helen Slater--Review and Giveaway!

You may know Helen Slater by her career. It has encompassed motion pictures, television, music, and stage. Her debut film performance in Supergirl, opposite Faye Dunaway and Peter O'Toole, then she went on to star in such films as The Legend of Billie Jean, Ruthless People, The Secret of My Success, City Slickers, Sticky Fingers, Lassie, No Way Back, The Steal, and Seeing Other People, among others.

She has now recorded this wonderful CD entitled Myths of Ancient Greece.
It mixes stories with songs.  We learn about  Demeter & Persephone, Perseus & Medusa, Orpheus & Eurydice, Echo & Narcissus, and Cupid & Psyche.

It's a great mix of the stories and the music.  The songs are catchy.   I would say this is good for all ages.
My daughter is a senior this year, and as many of you know, she is homeschooled.
It just happened that we studied Greece through books.  The books didn't touch too much on mythology and she expressed an interest in also learning the myths as well.  I had bought her a workbook that we have just started in.
I was excited to have a chance to review Myths of Ancient Greece and use it as part of her schooling.
We both really enjoyed it and will listen to it a few more times of learning.

It's a proven fact that music helps you learn better, this CD is great!
