Today I am finishing up Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. I know it doesn't exactly count as deep reading but when I heard it was a children's book about mythology I couldn't resist. I want to read it with Katydid, but needed to make sure nothing was too scary for her very vivid imagination.

Rick Riordan's tale of Percy Jackson does a great job introducing myths and legends to readers, in the same way the Harry Potter and Artemis Fowl books do, mixing modern life and ancient stories.

I am sure there are plenty of songs out there about Classical Mythology, but this is the one that popped into my head.

SONG OF THE DAY: "Bird Dream of the Olympus Mons" - The Pixies
