Library     Apollo and Hyacinthus     Parent Guide

by Thomas Bulfinch


Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "Apollo and Hyacinthus" by Thomas Bulfinch.

In the classic myth “Apollo and Hyacinthus,” Thomas Bulfinch retells the tragic story of the relationship between the god Apollo and a young man, Hyacinthus.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Death, Growing Up, and Love as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"How are we changed by love?", "How do people face death?", and "Why should we value our youth?"
