|Tommy Meets Dr. Zeus: A Tommy Tussle Adventure #2 by Author Larry Dean Jackson|
Tommy and his friends would rather do anything than study Greek Mythology in their 5th grade class. And while their minds don't exactly change, they suddenly find an interest in the subject. But the interest is not what you would expect. It was certainly not what they expected. As a result they find themselves in a situation where the only thing that can save them is Greek mythology. The fun in learning is to have fun with it and Author Larry Dean Jackson has done just that with his Tommy Tussle Adventure series.
This is a world where kids live anyway in their imaginations and a teacher who can reach out to them and stir those mental pictures is the teacher who will be remembered. Each of the books so far in this series have been great chapter books for all levels of reading.
The story can hold the interest of the more advanced readers. Intermediate and beginning chapter book readers, will be able to improve their ability while not losing comprehension of the story line.
