Poppins Book Nook: King Midas and the Golden Touch with Giveaway

     This month's theme for Poppins Book Nook is Greek Myths.  We chose the book King Midas and the Golden Touch by Demi.

In the book, King Midas judged a musical contest between Apollo and Pan.  Pan played a pipe of reeds and Apollo played a lyre.  King Midas awarded Pan, even though he played horribly.  So, for our craft, we made a lyre out of cardboard and yarn.

  1. Oooh, I never even thought of King Midas! Awesome choice!

  2. That is a fun story! I am sure you had some lovely music to go with your craft!

  3. That is a really cool looking harp. I really like the detail on your sons drawing too. What a fun way to learn about Greek Mythology.

  4. Just chanced upon this book in the library. As both a morality tale, and a lead in to ancient Greece, it is a great story.
