 I highly recommend the adaptation of Homer's work The Adventures of Odysseus by Hugh Lupton, Daniel Morden, and Christina Balit by Barefoot Books. While I am not generally a fan of adaptations or abridged versions, the trio do a wonderful job of illustrating and telling the tale and it has been is fun and educational for my five year old daughter. A reread of this on my part has many fitting lessons for the markets and life as well. The sacrifices, the battles, the subterfuge, and the perseverance amongst others are all involved. How to escape the son of Poseidon the Cyclops Polyphemus. How to accept the fact that one must sail close to the walls of Scylla, knowingly sacrificing six men so as to avoid the doom of the entire ship and men. How to avoid the temptations of the beautiful Sirens and the seemingly delectable cows grazing in the fields of forbidden of the god Hyperion. The lessons are countless, both overt and covert.
