This miraculously illustrated version of Stolen Thunder: A Norse Myth, tells the classic Nordic tale of how Thor, god of thunder, devises a cunning plan to get his stolen all-powerful hammer back from the frost giants with the help of the trickster god Loki, making it just one of many renditions of this piece of Traditional Literature.
This book would comprehensibly be an idyllic read aloud for students in approximately first or second grades, as they frequently cover a unit on myths and folklore in English Language Arts. Together, teachers and students can explore the themes typical of myths found in this book. In higher elementary grade levels, students can explore the way myths served the purpose of explaining the natural world in ancient times in a Social Studies type context. Moreover, the sophisticated, illustration style in this particular version of Stolen Thunder would appeal more to older children and thus make it a good guided reading selection for older elementary students. Additionally, the complex nature of the story provides ample opportunities for application of comprehension techniques during guided reading. Students in many elementary grade levels will be excited to read this tale because they can relate it to the Marvel comic version of Thor that they are familiar with. Classes could even engage in discussions comparing the two iterations.
Furthermore, this novel could be used as a mentor text to demonstrate the writing traits of sentence fluency, word choice, voice, ideas, and organization during writing workshop mini lessons. The ideas and organization of this story would also make it a fun one to use in a lesson on sequencing! In addition, this book contains massive amounts of dialogue, thus it could also serve as an example for students on creating dialogue and the conventions that accompany it as a writing lesson.
