Review: What did the Ancient Greeks do for me? That might be your question; well they did a lot for us today. After reading What Did the Ancient Greeks Do For Me? by Patrick Catel, I learned that they had a significant impact on the world today. Did you know that the Greeks created theater, philosophy, and democracy? This book shares facts about the Ancient Greeks and what they did to develop the world we live in today. What Did the Ancient Greeks Do For Me? is great for a research book because it gives strong details about Roman life and how it has influenced today's society. When it demonstrates the "then" and "now", it helps people understand that the ancient Greeks were very similar to people today. Our society has learned so much from the Greeks.
What Did the Ancient Greeks Do For Me? is an excellent addition to school libraries as well. Ancient Greece is a common unit for middle school social studies classes, and this high-interest book is a great supplement to the regular textbook (which is often boring). It also is a good book for research on the ancient Greeks. Finally, schools would also be wise to purchase this book because it has interesting facts and it helps students learn about how much we have advanced from then.
