Following the learning opportunities
My daughter, and to a lesser extent my son, have been enjoying The Avengers a great deal recently. The Avengers features Thor as a superhero character, and a great deal of Norse mythology gets thrown about. Since she had that introduction, I thought it would be good to see if she was interested in learning more, and it's proven true. Both kids are very much enjoying D'aulaires Book of Norse Myths. A few years ago we read D'aulaires Book of Greek Myths out loud, and this one is done just as well.
As a homeschooler, heck as a parent and a human being, I find it very important to just pay attention and to look for the ways to go deeper into whatever is currently of interest or of use. Pay Attention.
