7 Books for the Kid Who Loves Mythology

Article Type: 

I know a lot of you have kids out there that have devoured PERCY JACKSON and other great books about mythology. You may be wondering, is there anything else similar I can give them? The answer is, yes! The list below includes some of my favorite picks, some old, some new. Whether they’re explicitly continuing on with Greek mythology or branching out into other great mythologies, such as Irish or Norse, there’s a book here for everyone.

What’s my favorite? I love AMERICAN TALL TALES by Mary Pope Osborne. It’s illustrations bring to life some of our very own folk heroes from Paul Bunyan and his mighty ox to John Henry and his hammer that rivals Thor’s.

So, if your kid likes mythology:
