As I mentioned in my latest 7QT, Kieran requested a book about Odysseus on our library trip. We found The Adventures of Odysseus by Hugh Lupton and Daniel Morden, and illustrated by Christina Balit. Each short chapter (roughly 2-4 pages each) is another of Odysseus’ adventures on his 10-year journey back to Ithaca. The kids’ favourite of his journeys is when he encounters Scylla. In fact, Kieran has declared that he needs 5 more sisters so they can better play Scylla. I guess then Leo could be Charybdis ad Kieran could play Odysseus. I love listening to them play the Odyssey.
I know I’ve talked about other books about Odysseus. I think this one is my favourite thus far. The way it is written is engaging for them and the illustrations are wonderful. I want to pick up The Adventures of Achilles by the same author now.
