Overview

Athletes Needed—apply at your local gymnasium. Do you have what it takes to represent Athens at the great games at Olympia? Find out in this fun book that tells you how young people in ancient Greece trained to be athletes.


History is exciting and memorable in the "How To Be" series, which ''preps'' children for some of the most fascinating occupations of all time. Each book features detailed illustrations and engaging text, challenging students to learn as much as they can as they prepare for a ''job interview'' at the end of the book.


Topics selected complement social studies curriculum in grades 3 to 6. This series is sure to motivate even the most reluctant of readers—especially boys.
