  • Demeter and Persephone Retold by Audrey Aldridge
  • She will be mine!!
  • I love flowers!!
  • I need to give her some pomegranate seeds!!
  • Long ago there was a goddess named Demeter the goddess of the earth. She had a beautiful daughter named Persephone and she lived in Ancient Greece.
  • One day Persephone was in the garden picking flowers. Then out of nowhere she heard a loud CRACK in the ground, and saw Hades ride out on a dark horse. Hades is the god of the Underworld. He grabbed Persephone and took her to the Underworld to be his wife.
  • You will get her back for a time!!
  • I want my daughter!!
  • I want my daughter!
  • Hades remembered how to keep Persephone in the Underworld. He had to get her to eat pomegranate seeds. He had a handful of seeds and convinced her to eat a few. When Persephone was in the Underworld her mother got so sad the she forgot to grow the plants.
  • She is my wife!
  • You can both have her!
  • I want both!!
  • The day that Hades took Persephone she dropped her sash. One day a man was walking in the dead garden and found the sash by the huge crack in the ground. The man took the sash to Demeter and showed her the crack in the garden.
  • Demeter got so mad that she called down Zeus the king of gods. They went down to the Underworld to confront Hades, but Persephone and Hades where already man and wife. Demeter got so mad that she said that she was never going to grow the plants aagain.
  • Zeus made a deal with them. The deal was for every pomegranate seed that Persephone ate she had to stay in the underworld for a month, and the rest of they year with Demeter. This is why we have all the seasons.
