Summer Reading with Percy Jackson & The Olympians
My children are natural readers. Their Christmas and birthday lists always have a few of their favorite book wants listed on there for us to purchase. This year, my ten-year-old got tons of Rick Riordan books for Christmas! I love that they enjoy the written word as much as I do! This summer, though, we’re going to be tackling another Rick Riordan series they haven’t read before, a series my older children have read, and every single one of my kids is invested in and excited about it. This summer, we’re reading the complete Percy Jackson & the Olympians series! Woohoo!

Maybe their designated reading time will be after swimming in the pool? Maybe it’ll be while they’re eating lunch? But in order to ensure we all get through this entire series this summer, my children will have a dedicated time to read every day! Let’s go, friends!
Reading this Summer with Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series
My oldest daughter is incredibly excited about this, as this has always been one of her favorite series of books to read! She’s going to be helping me with the kids in discussing these books with the kids as they read them! She’s also going to be reading it to my seven-year-old, who can’t quite read these books herself yet, but she wants to join in on the fun with us! It’ll prep her for being able to read them herself as she becomes a stronger reader! She was instantly excited about these books seeing her siblings read them, I love that she’s going to partake too!

Percy Jackson and the Olympians – The Lightning Thief
Synopsis for the first book in the series, The Lightning Thief: Twelve-year-old 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.
