For kids, if you want a shorter version, D'Aulaire's Book of Greek Myths is the pick. If you do not mind a slightly longer version, The Usborne Book of Greek Myths is a lot better.

A good counterpart to the D'Aulaire book on Greek mythology, this one leans towards children's level storytelling as well, and concentrates more on heroes than on the gods. The inclusion of the Eros and Psyche story is a welcome one in particular.
