Sadly, I have not been reading much this summer. BUT... it's because I am working hard in the library making some BIG changes!!! Have you ever heard of GENRE-FYING? Well... it's coming soon to the AES Library! Just let the picture be a clue for you...
Since I haven't had much time for MY reading, maybe you'll share what YOU have been reading during your summer break. C'mon students AND teachers... let me hear from you! I'd love to post your responses. Just give me title/author name of a book (or BOOKS) that you have been enjoying. You can even tell us a bit about it (but don't give away the ending)! Prizes for all who respond when we return to school in August... now GO!
Basically, mythology is ancient man's way of trying to make sense of this enormous world and the universe beyond. Before the Bible was written and before scientists uncovered facts about the world we live in, people wondered about where humans came from, why they were different from other creatures, about why things happened in nature, and about the strange objects in the far away sky. So, they gazed at the sun, moon, and stars and came up with some VERY cool (and crazy) stories to try and make sense of how this world and people came to be... that's mythology!
We have many mythological selections in the AES Library... from the actual myths themselves to fun fictional selections like the Percy Jackson series, come on in and check out one that's just right for YOU! Remember... you don't have to believe in these crazy tales if you read them... just enjoy them and feed your brain with a snack from the mythological world!
