How the Week Was MadeBook - 1998
Most of us take the days of the week for granted, but each has a unique history. This compelling collection of tales about how the week was made takes young readers back to the first age of the Vikings, then further back to the Romans & even further to the ancient Greeks, Egyptians & Babylonians. All these people gave something to our calendar. They used the sun, the moon & the planets to measure time & the seasons, & the stories that they invented about their gods & goddesses make each day of the week different. Each story begins with an introduction to the day & endnotes at the back of the book offer even more interesting facts & insights.
