The reader of The Labyrinth is invited to ‘remake’ each of the 20 open-ended stories based on Greek mythology, without pressure to guess how the story was originally told. The point is to let the child's imagination lead to a solution she/he finds the most appropriate, the most desirable, the most interesting... This stimulates both problem-solving and creative thinking, as well as the child's involvement in reading the story. Even when the child is not willing to figure out the solution by her/himself, the moment of pausing and thinking of the possible reasons/motives/circumstances of an act or event intellectually activates the child, who will look for the solution (given in the second part of the book) with greater interest and will be motivated to think about its meaning and implications. Such intellectual and emotional involvement enhances the child's interest in mythology, as well as in reading in general. An additional benefit is that motivating the child to write up his/her own solutions makes writing exercises great fun, thus facilitating the development of writing skills. The author is a psychologist specializing in child development, a professor of developmental and educational psychology and a Gestalt psychotherapist
