Personal Response- I have always enjoyed this class mythology story so I included this book with my unit for a project earlier in this class. I liked that it was easy to follow and understand. Homer is difficult to read sometimes so it's refreshing to read something and understand it. I like that they included some basic background and has a pronunciation guide.

Curricular Connections- I actually used these stories at my school. I read a loud all 6 stores, students took notes to create a summary and finally they produced a google slide show on one designated story out of the six. Student enjoyed the book and even commented it's more interesting than some things on TV. I liked that they enjoyed listening to the story since that is why the accumulation of stories was gathered together. ( )

The story of Damon and Pythias is a classic good vs. evil where good triumphs over evil. Damon and Pythias are the best of friends, with such a close bond they would die for one another. Dionysius is a tyrannical leader who wishes to put Pythias to death because of a dream he had, but when he witnesses the trust and love Damon and Pythias have for one another he has a change of heart and lets both friends free and asks if he too could be friends with them as they are to one another. The story is a moral lesson of how true friendships should be.

This book is a great resource for teachers. This book is a collection of myths presented to be read out loud to children. Each myth has a kind of study guid to go with it,great questions to ask students. It also names the main characters in the story and who they are. Very cool book.
Echo and Narcissus
Greek Mythology
Classic Myths to Read Aloud
William F. Russell, Ed. D.
Crown Trade Paperback
Copyright 1989 by William F. Russell

1. The gods and goddesses in this story are: the god Jupiter who enjoys philandering with the mortals and nymphs on earth, his very jealous wife Juno, Echo a very talkative nymph, and Narcissus an extremely good looking god who has a very cold heart. The goddess Nemesis who seeks to punish and reward to keep a balance in the universe also plays a part in this Myth.

2. Plot
Jupiter heads down to earth to party with the mortals and nymphs. His wife Juno goes looking for him. A very cheerful extremely talkative nymph named Echo who is also a nymph who services Jupiter during his time on earth tries to head off Juno with her chatter. When Juno realizes she has been tricked she is very angry and uses her divine powers to take away Echo’s voice. Echo is left with the ability to only repeat the last word of any sentence spoken to her. In the Forest Echo comes across Narcissus the very handsome cold hearted god and instantly falls in love with him. He does not return her affections and she is left to wander with a broken heart and eventually fades away leaving only traces of her faint voice behind. Narcissus also reaches his demise when a scorned maiden prays to the gods to punish Narcissus for tormenting people with his good looks and cold heart. The goddess Nemesis hears her prayer and punishes Narcissus by making him fall in love with his own reflection in a pool. Narcissus being unable to tear himself away from his own image eventually fades away as did Echo. In his place a flower with white petals and a striking golden center is left.
