Enjoy the rest of your summer!
I finished reading Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard by Rick Riordan and loved every minute of it! While in the Human World, the story is set in Boston, my favorite city. The adventure takes you to many of the 9 Worlds to meet many memorable characters. Magnus Chase is your typical teenager (except that he is a demigod) with a sarcastic sense of humor that makes it funny. I especially liked Rick Riordan's descriptions of his characters, adding another element to the Norse Gods. Thor is a bit different than how he is portrayed in the movie franchise! Check it out: you don't want to miss this exciting adventure this summer!
Are you in grades 3-5 and looking for a good summer read? Try Time for Andrew by Mary Downing Hahn! I just read this cool time travel / ghost story about an 11 year old boy who trades places with his ancestor from 1910 who looks exactly like him! I recommend this entertaining book (don't worry, it's suspenseful, not scary!) This is also on the 3/4th grade Battle of the Books list for 2016/17!

Happy Summer! While you are out enjoying the beautiful sunshine, be sure to bring with you a good book!
