Read full description of the books:
Riordan, James. The Twelve Labors of Hercules (1997). This book discusses the birth and death of Hercules as well as the twelve labors he endured. Hera is upset that Zeus has decided to name Hercules after her since he is not her son. She vows to make Hercules’ life as difficult and miserable as possible in retaliation. One day, Hera envelopes Hercules in a fit of madness and he throws his wife and children into a fire. Overcome with grief, he visits an Oracle to decide his fate. The Oracle tells Hercules he must serve his half-brother King Eurystheus for twelve years, completing twelve tasks. Once they are successfully completed, he will find peace. The story continues on to discuss each of the twelve labors Hercules endures and the book eventually ends by revealing his final fate. The book does not go into a lot of detail, which makes it more suitable for younger readers. The illustrations are simple, but help show the setting and fill in the details the story lacks. The images are vibrant and colorful and give a very cheerful “heavenly” glow, lending to the mythical setting of the story. The motif of the story is strength and skill, perseverance, and jealousy. Target Audience: Upper elementary (4-6).
