Happy Monday, everyone! This week I decided to keep my goals a little more realistic, and just finish the second half of the book I started last week.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief
Wow! I was very impressed with this book. Percy, son of Poseidon must recover Zeus’s lightning bolt to restore order among the gods, as well as save his mother. The only problem I had with this book was the middle…the journey across the country seemed to go on for a really long time. Other than that, a fantastic read!
Now a question for you guys…a girl at the school I work at noticed I was reading this book and got excited because she loves the books. It was great to make this connection, but I wonder how appropriate the books are for her (she’s in 2nd grade). When I read this book, I saw it as a read for a 4th/5th grader, or a mature 3rd grader. Am I being overly cautious? What do you guys think?
