Podcast #4: Book Spotlight – D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths by Ingri and Edgar Parin d’Aulaire

This Dream Gardens podcast is another book spotlight, this time of D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths, the classic collection of stories for children of the ancient Greek gods and goddess, heroes and monsters, written and illustrated by the husband and wife team of Ingri and Edgar Parin d’Aulaire. It also happens to be one of my favorite books from my childhood.

The next podcast will be on New Years Day, 2017, and will be a return to the interview format.
