World Mythology Series

I have long admired the excellent World Mythology Series and just now realized that I do not have a post with all of the titles in it! So here goes:

Angels, Prophets, Rabbis & Kings
from the Stories of the Jewish People

Demons, Gods & Holy Men
from Indian Myths & Legends

Dragons, Gods & Spirits
from Chinese Mythology

Druids, Gods & Heroes
from Celtic Mythology

Fabled Cities, Princes & Jinn
from Arab Myths and Legends

Gods and Heroes
from Viking Mythology

Gods and Pharaohs
from Egyptian Mythology

Gods, Men and Monsters
from the Greek Myths

Heroes, Gods & Emperors
from Roman Mythology

Heroes, Monsters and Other Worlds
from Russian Mythology

Kings, Gods & Spirits
from African Mythology

Spirits, Heroes & Hunters
from North American Indian Mythology

Warriors, Gods & Spirits
from Central & South American Mythology

Waldorf embeds its language arts instruction in Fairy Tales, Folktales, Aesop's Fables, and Jataka Tales in grades 1 & 2, and then does a long series of World Mythology blocks as its cultural study throughout grades 3, 4, and 5. However, you could certainly extend it into grades 6 and 7, especially if you are wanting to be as multi-cultural as possible.

There are lots of compilations besides these books, of course, but they are a solid place to start and each book has enough stories that it could be your sole teaching resource for a main lesson, making them very economical.
