A New Series Discovery...

July 13, 2010

In doing a kids book blog I have been able to discover, and read, books that I normally wouldn't have. I say it's in the name of starting my girls' library for when they're old enough- and it partly is. Partly. But, it's also because kids books can be fun as heck books to read.

Case in point: The Mystery of Biltmore House. This is the first book of almost 30 in a series written by Carole Marsh. Geared to readers at the 3-5 reading level, they are perfect for elementary aged children. This book was fun, informative, and easy to follow. Carole puts educational facts within the story and does it well. I love that she uses real children as her characters. I'm not ashamed to say that I'll be reading more from this series- though I can't quite decide which one to read next.

If you know any children (or even yourself) who likes mysteries without the blood and scary stuff, pass this series along. (The reference to blood made in the summary turns out to be grape juice from the vines, in case that strikes a chord with any children.)

Thanks for the recommendation! I'll tell about this series to my cousin's kiddo. He just turned 5.
