Good, CALLIOPE can't wait to take you on the "ride through history," a ride that travels the world, not just any one area.

Actually, what's been most difficult for Calliope is choosing which tales to include because there are so many! A few of her choices: the fateful wedding of Thetis and Peleus (what joy, but oh what misery this union caused), almost-impossible love of Cupid for Psyche (with a future mother-in-law who takes the prize for being conniving), and the almost-ones (those not chosen to be among the celebrated 12 mighty Olympians but who were pretty great on their own). As a special treat, Calliope will retell the Batrachomyocmachia-now that's a mouthful - and actually the characters in the play are mostly frogs and mice! Learn More

  9. Crisis of Faith: The Reformation

    Crisis of Faith: The Reformation

    $6.95
    OK - the title of this issue is "The Reformation"-but what's the Reformation? Actually, it is a movement, which some have called a revolt, that not only affected the religious practices of millions of people, but also changed the course of history in many ways. It was a time when those who sought to translate the Bible in to the language of the people could have drastic results. It was also a time of great controversy and debate. Some names may be familiar to you, such as John Calvin and Martin Luther, but others, equally important, may not-Huldreich Zwingli and Jan Hus, for example. And, did you know that the movement changed church music and even religious art. So, while dictionaries can condense their overview of the Reformation into a couple of sentences, you'll find CALLIOPE's thought-provoking account one that engages you and has you eager to learn more about this tumultuous historical period.

  10. Two Sides of History

    Two Sides of History

Are they fearful of the consequences of using their own names? Why? Were the Europeans correct when they said ancient Zimbabweans could never have built the ancient structures in their lands?
