It will be about what books I am reading, and hopefully others will share what they are reading too, as well as a place to talk about some of our favorite authors and keep up with their new books and series. It is a place to explore new authors that others enjoy and find new books to love. It is a place for all to come and share their love of books especially mysteries.

TBT and Get Kids Reading choice
I thought I would combine my Throwback Thursday choice with a Get Kids Reading choice and so I choose. Changing Tides (National Treasure A Gates Family Mystery book 1) by Catherine Hapka
This first book in a series based on the National Treasure books is an excellent mystery to start with for kids to read. I must say as an adult I like them too and will read the others in the series. This book starts with how the Gates family got to America. Samuel Gates and his brother in 1612 sail for America and on the way learn of a treasure and decided to try and find it. They land in Jamestown hoping to find the treasure, gain wealth and repair their families reputation. This book and the others in the series is a great way to read about history while following along trying to solve the mystery and locate a treasure. Young kids will be learning history and not even realize it. This is a great book and each chapter builds excitement and leaves you wanting more. I think it is worth a look and read for young chapter book readers.
I hope you will try these mysteries but start with the first one here and follow the Gates family through American history.
Until Next Time: GRAB A CUP OF COFFEE OR TEA, SOME CHOCOLATE, A GOOD BOOK AND KEEP ON READING AND GET THE KIDS READING!
