My ten-year-old son is Rick Riordan’s biggest fan. Usually I have to pre-order the books for him and as soon as he’s done reading, he’s asking for the next one. Thankfully for summer reading, there are two new books that my son will be very excited about and Magnus Chase in October!
The Demigods of Olympus: An Interactive Adventure
The first is a new eBook coming out on July 14th: The Demigods of Olympus: An Interactive Adventure!

5 Wonderful Picture Books on Africa
I know very little about the continent of Africa so today I wanted to explore it through picture books. These five books show different perspectives from the story of young Masaii girl who wants to touch the moon to visiting family in Tanzania and The Gambia. I was surprised to learn that the people in Mauritania, West Africa are Muslim and that Jackie Robinson’s daughter wrote a book about her mother. Finally, there’s the true story of Isatou Ceesay and the Recycling Women of the Gambia who turn trash into treasure with an ecological bent.
I hope you enjoy this five book trip to Africa too! What are your favorite books on Africa? Please share! Thank you!
