“Your kids will grow without realizing it!”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Bradley Cobb
Intelligent. Fun. Interesting. Engaging. These are words that easily apply to this, the first Whiz Tanner book. Your kids deserve interesting books that are fun and well-written. Not since the Brains Benton series of the late 1950s has a kids’ detective series been so realistically portrayed. The two heroes of the book are just like real kids. And they have real problems to deal with (like school schedules, parents, and the like). This series (like Brains Benton before them) makes kids realize just what they’re capable of. It gives them an enjoyable, fun read, while at the same time helps them to grow in observing things around them (detective abilities), as well as in putting together information to come to a conclusion (aka reasoning abilities).
Get this book (and the rest in this series) for your kids. They’ll thank you for the fun reading material, never realizing that you are using it to help them learn necessary skills. Pure genius.
