Childrens Book Week May 12-18 Suggested Reads for Kids

This week is Children's Book Week and I thought I would give you just a few suggestions of mystery adventure books your kids might like. I will start with the young ones with and a good series for younger children one that they can change the adventure as they read it is a Choose Your Own Path book Quest For The Lost Treasure by Gerry Gaston. Another series of books for just a little older child is the Choose Your Own Adventure books like this set which is Mystery of the Maya/House of Danger/Race Forever/Escape (Choose Your Own Adventure 5-8) by R A Montgomery.  Another mystery series for 1- 3rd grade is the Jeffery Bones Mystery series by David A Adler.  A great series for 3rd grade to 6th is the Encyclopedia Brown mystery series by Donald J Sobol. There is always the good old stand by mysteries of Nancy Drew and  The Hardy Boys for older children as well as a fairly new series the Kingdom Keepers by Ridley Pearson. My grandkids always liked The Magic Tree House Series and this is another great series for grade school to beginning middle school children.  A new to me mystery series for kids  is a series for 6-9 year olds called Ball Park Mysteries by David A Kelly this is unique because each mystery is set in a different ball park something that a baseball fan would love to read and others too. Last is the mystery books for kids by well known adult mystery writer John Grisham and it is the Theodore Boone Series which sounds like a great series for  8-12 year old kids.
I hope this gives you some ideas for the children in your life. It is so important to read to and get kids reading. There is an adventure waiting for them in books.
