  1. Hi- Do you know of any children’s picture books on the Trojan War suitable for a Kindergartener? The only one I’ve found on the web is an out-of-print golden book taht sell for around $100… Thanks for your thoughts!

    • Hi, Andrew! Unfortunately I’m not too knowledgeable about Trojan War picture books, and most of the ones I’ve looked through have too much text or violence for me to easily recommend them for a kindergartener. The only one that comes to mind might be the one you’re thinking of, but just in case it isn’t, it’s this: Crayola Kids Adventures: The Trojan Horse. (There’s also this one and this one that come up under the same title. I’m not sure what the differences are, although those latter two seem to be marked for older kids.) I’ve never read this book beyond flipping through it in the bookstore so I don’t know how closely the story follows the mythology, but if you’re okay with purchasing a used copy from Amazon Marketplace it seems you can get it pretty cheap. There was also Crayola Kids Trojan Horse VHS release that you can watch in low quality parts on YouTube. Best of luck, and sorry I can’t be more helpful than that!

  2. That was helpful (you confirmed what I thought, anyway), but it’s unfortunate there’s not something truer to the story and more engaging, given how rich the source material is!
