Percy Jackson's Greek Gods - Rick Riordan,John Rocco

Just a heads-up: this book is big. I thought it would be the size of a novel, but no, it was closer to the size of a textbook.

 

So, I already knew most of these stories, but damn Percy's commentary sure made it entertaining. Percy Jackson, I officially love you. I also learned a few new stories.

 

Also, there's so much feminism and I love it. Percy points out the inequities between men and women in Greek mythology, and doesn't just gloss over the terrible things women were subjected to.

 

The illustrations are gorgeous too.

 

Now, I am so ready to read Percy Jackson's Greek Heroes.

 

Also, I said I would include some quotes but I returned this book to the library so I can't do that now. Sorry. If I ever reread it, I will definitely include some of my favorite quotes.

And Tango Makes Three - Justin Richardson,Henry Cole,Peter Parnell

This was a very cute and heartwarming story about a family of penguins, a family that happened to have two fathers instead of a mother and father. It is based on a true story.
Some may think this book is inappropriate for children, but I firmly disagree. I believe it is important for children to learn early on that families of all different kinds exist and all are beautiful and special. Besides, there's absolutely no sexual content so I don't understand why parents would think this isn't safe for kids to read.
If I ever have kids, I will definitely read this to them. And if you have kids, I suggest you read it to them.
Because love and families in all their forms are beautiful <3
