Rick Riordon Books: What Should Kids Read?

June 12, 2016

Rick Riordan’s popular gods of Olympus books have revived the conversation about what kids should read. While Riordan’s books are universally acclaimed, others from the Twilight series to Manga are criticized as stunting a young reader’s growth.

Some say not. For more pros and cons, check out Neil Gaiman and other’s comments in Rebecca Mead’s New Yorker post.
