Review of Alpha is for Anthropos

"My experience in using [the songs] with my students has been thoroughly successful - and, moreover, adds to their pleasure in learning what is often a daunting language. ... The illustrations completely enhance the verses for children, and offer chances to tell versions of the myths to curious little ones. ... In short, this is a beautifully produced, charming, engaging, and fun introduction to Ancient Greek. Alpha is for Anthropos should be a welcome addition to one's teaching repertoire, nursery, and list of shower gifts for classicist friends."

-- Elizabeth A. Manwell, The Classical Outlook Vol. 90, No. 2 (2014)
