    RATING 4 STARS Review Not on Blog Please Note that the following review is the general review on the Cam Jansen Mysteries I loved this series as a kid I believe I was about 6 to 8 when I read these books and it would be the beginning of my love of mysteries Cam Jansen, about 10 years old, uses her photographic memory to solve mysteries They remind me of Agatha Christie novels but for children beginning to read chapter books I would call these one step above the easy readers.

    A book my 6 yr old loved, a little old for my preschoolers A solid reading level 2 book, this reader has a good amount of advanced vocabulary words, but not so long that it discourages a new reader Used it for his read out loud book, which was perfect It took about 15 mins for him to read and had just enough new vocabulary words to make it challenging Also, it was a fun and interesting story he could get into He liked it so much, he asked forby this author Great reading book

    Nine times out of ten, my boys will ask me to pick something for them to read I m not quite sure why they prefer me to choose, but hey, I ll take it And let me tell you, I take the job seriously I don t want to give them something they don t like, making reading feel like a chore to them So I m on a mission to read as many of the children s chapter books I have at home and there are seriously hundreds in the hopes of giving them good, personalize recommendations It s almost baseball seaso Nine times out of ten, my boys will ask me to pick something for them to read I m not quite sure why they prefer me to choose, but hey, I ll take it And let me tell you, I take the job seriously I don t want to give them something they don t like, making reading feel like a chore to them So I m on a mission to read as many of the children s chapter books I have at home and there are seriously hundreds in the hopes of giving them good, personalize recommendations It s almost baseball season and my 1st grader s reading skills are growing like crazy and I think he will be ready to graduate to chapter books soon So I thought I would start my quest with this book I m going with 4 stars because each chapter ends with a nice hook that will keep the reader coming back forThe vocab is a little challenging, but not so challenging as to deter a young reader The chapters are short and succinct The mystery is clearly explained and the logic is easy for a young reader to follow I will be putting this on the recommendation list for my 7 year old

    Alder s Cam Jansen series are great chapter book starter reads for children ages 7 to 10 who enjoy mysteries The series provides great situations that promote problem solving skills to readers and attention to details in situations where problem solving is necessary A female protagonist leads each of the books, but does not stop the individual books in providing interest to readers across genres and themes.

    I like to collect books like this for those rare nights my kids want me to read them to sleep They are long enough that it s fun for me, but short enough we can get it done in less than 20 minutes This was my first cam Jansen book in 20 years They are fun for kids who like encyclopedia brown or Nate the great.
