The Lightning Thief by Rick RiordanMy fourth grader has read over pages of this book during the last couple weeks. Although he prefers the 39 Clues serious for more action, I find this book a more valuable reading accomplishment. The exposure to mythology will help to pronounce the names. But, more importantly, if you are on the AR system for reading, this book is worth 13 points. Riordan's 39 Clue book was worth several points and is what helped to choose our current title. Having seen the recent flim also helped to make the title a good current choice. I have chose this book to let the youngster realize that even a thick book can be overcome.

This novel is followed by The Sea of Monsters and spawned two sequel series and the extended universe of the Camp Half-Blood chronicles. His son had been studying Greek mythology in second grade and asked that his father come up with bedtime stories based on Greek myths. Riordan had been a Greek mythology teacher in middle school for many years and was able to remember enough stories to please his son.
If heroes age the same way books do, Percy would now be 24? Did you run to the most convenient chat forum? Did you talk to people directly, like real face to real face? How was it done?? Tell us please.
Hi guys! I know I said that I was going to post them one at a time, but I failed at that, so I figured I would just post them all at once! So, here they are! Look, they make a mural when they are all lined up next to each other, and the spines make a cool wavy pattern! I put the old cover for each book, and then the new cover so you can compare them.
