message 1: by Sarah (last edited Aug 24, 2013 04:32AM) (new)

Sarah This was the year that Riordan took over. We read the Percy Jackson series as well as the Heros of Olympus series (we still do as we await a new book almost every year and currently awaiting House of Hades to be released). The Kane Chronicles is another series we read and continue reading with new releases. Non-fiction also increased because of his interest in Greek, Roman and Egyptian mythology inspired by Riordan's books.

Silky books like Horrid Henry crept in and comic books such as the Calvin and Hobbes series but kept at a minimum. Captain Underpants (sp) books are banned in my home as well as Barney the Purple Dinosaur and anything Teletubbies when he was much younger (and that's anyother story).

We read The Maze Runner series and he loved it and we started Flanagan's The Ranger's Apprentice and into book 5 out of 11 while he was still nine. I highly recommend this series if you enjoy Riordan's books, Rowling's Harry Potter series and Suzanne Collin's Gregor the Overlander series.

Also read and loved were John Stephen's books The Emerald Atlas and The Fire Chronicles. We continue to wait for the next book (and assuming it is a trilogy and about what we think will be called or in reference to, The Book of Death).

As I've said before, to each his own. It depends on the interests of the child, their level of reading and comprehension as well as the amount of risk they are willing to take to learn to read more challenging and complex chapter books.

Bottom line: as long as they are reading!
