Review:
Calliope - meaning the Greek goddess of music, song and dance - is a unique magazine that blends past and present world history in a completely understandable and relevant way. Dramatic tales and high-action plays bring past events vividly to life. Articles illustrated with art from the world's leading museums and other primary sources make the stories seem real. Word origins and activities are designed to intrigue budding historians. Each creative issue focuses on a single theme, utilizing thought-provoking articles with coinciding puzzles and games to explore the subject from different angles. The thoughtful layout enables the readers to see that there are many points of view on any topic.
