Logic Stage Book List for Ancients

Below is the list of books I’ll be using for Logic Stage (Gr. 5 – 8).  I chose a mix of classics (retellings of The Epic of Gilgamesh, The Iliad, etc.) and modern works set in ancient times (Middleworld, Seven Daughters and Seven Sons, etc.).  My 10-year-old was excited when the books arrived in the mail, so I think I’ve chosen well.

  1. Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos by R. L. LaFevers
  2. Tales of Ancient Egypt by Roger Lancelyn Green
  3. Children’s Illustrated Bible (DK) by Selina Hastings
  4. Aesop’s Fables by Ann McGovern
  5. Gilgamesh the Hero by Geraldine McCaughrean
  6. The Broken Tusk by Uma Krishnaswami
  7. Tales from Africa by Kathleen Arnott
  8. The Aeneid for Boys and Girls by Alfred Church
  9. Tales of Greek Heroes by Roger Lancelyn Green
  10. Seven Daughters and Seven Sons by Barbara Cohen
  11. The Odyssey by Geraldine McCaughrean
  12. Middleworld (The Jaguar Stones, Book One) by J&P Voelkel
