Percy led to D’Aulaires and Edith Hamilton

B’s buddies at Lego Club loved the Percy Jackson books, DH read them along with him, discussing the very troubling death of his stepfather.  DH and B were waiting so long for the 5th book to come in from the library, that DH bought it on Amazon, and then they took turns devouring it.

B has since read D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths, and is half way through Edith Hamilton’s Mythology.  Sometimes a popular book will lead to ones you would have assigned anyway, only now it’s the kid’s idea and he does it on his own. 

Convenient.
