Don't let your children grow up without hearing a few Encyclopedia Brown stories!
This book contains cute, fairly simple puzzles for kids to read and solve. The main character is 10 years old. I remember loving this series of books when I was in 3rd or 4th grade, and just recently found it again. I have re-read it since finidng it and the puzzles are just as cute, but much easier to solve now that I'm not 10 years old. Each puzzle is 3-6 pages long. The solutions and explanations to the puzzles are included in the back of the book.
This book is good for trying to get non-reading kids to read. Each puzzle is short enough to hold interest, but also allows them to put the book down and come back later.
both boys loved this series.
