Date with my Daughter- The Lightning Thief
Saturday the 13th I guess it was, I took Beans and her friend, to see The Lightning Thief.
Way Cool Movie!
I love that our hero is dyslexic!
I love that it is about the classical myths. My daughter, in 6th grade now, has not spent much time in school on the classic myths, something I learned in 3rd grade via the Calvert School. She is taking "Latin for Word Power" right now and they will dabble a bit with the myths and the Roman names of the gods and goddesses. I think this wet her appetite. She really liked the movie a lot. She is also a fan of things with dragons, magic, and the Chronicles of Narnia so this was right up her ally. I am now interested in getting my hands on these books to see what they are all about.
