I am so proud of my kids and how far they have come this year with their reading. It seems like every time I turn around they are breezing through another book or series.

I am really excited that my son just started the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series by Rick Riordan! The 5-book series has been on the New York Times bestseller list for over 500 weeks! It’s perfect timing as we head into the summer to get started on reading the complete series!
Percy Jackson’s Blue Chocolate Chip Cookies
The Percy Jackson & the Olympians series is a fresh and exciting way to learn about Greek Mythology, the Olympians, the Titans, the Minotaur and more through a fast-paced, entertaining adventure.
Synopsis of Book 1: The Lightning Thief
Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school… again. And that’s the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy’s Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he’s angered a few of them. Zeus’s master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus’s stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.
