The Keepers of the Lost Cities is a series of books that are fun and interesting books to read! Because I am passionate about reading comprehension, I ask several reading comprehension questions to make sure the student is understanding the material they are reading. When the student understands the story, he or she can theorize how the story ends. Or they can theorize about why things happened the way they did in the book. I want reading to be fun, and The Keepers of the Lost Cities is a great series to have the student read and find enjoyable. I hope this will help foster the love of reading. In my previous teaching experiences, I have focused on reading comprehension with great success.

This book is suggested for children ages 9 +. My class minimum age is 11. Information from https://www.commonsensemedia.org/book-reviews/unlocked-keeper-of-the-lost-cities-book-85 states: “Parents need to know that Unlocked is, for the most part, an archive of reference materials for the Keeper of the Lost Cities series, with a brief but intense narrative section that sets up Book 9, and lot of commentary by author Shannon Messenger, who's clearly having a lot of fun with her readers (and messing with them). It will make no sense whatever to readers unfamiliar with the series, but will be a valuable navigational aid to readers who find the complexity getting out of hand over the course of eight volumes so far. True devotees will revel in the gorgeous art, fannish quizzes and coloring pages, and an inside look at bad-boy Keefe's detention records. The story has involved a lot of violence (physical, mental, and emotional), death, loss, toxic family relationships, dark magic, assorted other mayhem, and endless references to the pee, poop, and other bodily fluids of magical animals -- and it all gets revisited. As does Sophie's conflicted romantic history, her even more conflicted family history (she was genetically engineered from DNA donated by elves, raised by humans, and is now adopted by an elvin family), and her still largely undefined world-saving responsibilities. Pee and poop, usually of magical beings, are an essential ingredient in most of elvin medicine and are recurring story elements. Also, pus and other disgusting bodily fluids -- there's an ongoing grossout theme throughout the series. Promotion of the previous books, the upcoming book, and related online content is a bit relentless.” Parents should consider their child to determine if they think they are ready to read this book and join this class discussion.
The student should have The Keeper of the Lost Cities, Unlocked, 8.5 read before class. The student should bring this book to class.
