Our summer reading challenge is coming to an end and while we didn’t finish the entire Percy Jackson and the Olympians series before school started, we are currently reading book 4: The Battle of the Labyrinth. We went back to school on August 1st and JaMonkey is now in middle school, so we are adjusting to new schedules. I was excited to learn that she was placed into accelerated classes for reading and language arts though! That love of reading really carries over.
I asked my daughter who her favorite character was in the series and I tend to agree with her pick.
“Annabeth Chase is my favorite,” JaMonkey said. “She is funny, and I like that she is the daughter of Athena, so she is a warrior.”
Along with the books, she has been reading the graphic novel versions of the series as well. She loves the vivid imagery. The series is a wonderful mix of Greek mythology and fantasy, both are topics that she loves, so the stories hold her interest.
Whether you’re planning a summer reading challenge or a themed party, this round-up of Percy Jackson-inspired projects will help jump-start your planning. We have some awesome games and crafts you can make and play together, along with a collection of recipes inspired by the series.
