What do an olive tree, an owl, and a plumed helmet all have in common? Each one is a symbol of Athena, the goddess of wisdom. In this book young readers learn about Athena, the daughter of the Greek god of mythology Zeus. Of course, like the other Greek gods and goddesses, Athena was not without faults. Her fierce independence often led her to rebel against her father and to fight with her many brothers and sisters. But she also came to their aid over and over again, proving herself to be worthy of her title-and all the respect with which it came.
