I'm getting ready to do a lesson on mosaics for art class and was wanting a book about ancient Greece that had a picture or pictures of mosaics in them.  Really wanted the book to be more like a historical fiction geared for 1st grade.  Found all kind of children's books on Greek mythology or etc. - just couldn't find out if they happened to have a picture of a mosaic in the background.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Jeannette

I would look more for photos of mosaics from Turkey/Persia.

I know there are great books that are like you're describing.  I'll give it some thought and get back to you if I remember them.  Have you asked a children's librarian?

There are several photos on this page about Tunisia. One of the captions says that they have the largest collection of Roman Mosaics in the world.
