Michael loves to read, as do his siblings.
Michael read The Lightning Thief in the fall, and he absolutely loved it, so I got him the entire series of Percy Jackson and the Olympians for Christmas. In the 3 weeks since Christmas, he has devoured the series, and he is about half way through with the 5th and final book. He was excited to find supplemental books at the library, so he's reading the comic version, as well as perusing the All-Things-Percy encyclopedia-ish guide. Some of the themes and ideas are a little over Michael's head (ie, he asked me today what a "boarding school" is, and why would someone ever send their kids there), but he loves the action and the mythology. A boy after my own heart.
