Reading Detective: Young Cam Jansen and the Library Mystery


Alexis's first mystery was Young Cam Jansen and the Library Mystery. This is the first Young Cam Jansen book we have read. Cam, her father and her friend Eric visit the library to check out books. Afterwards, they stop at the grocery store but Dad's grocery list is missing. Cam now has a new mystery to solve and gathers all the clues to find the missing list.

Alexis was able to solve the mystery right away even before Cam. The interesting thing we learned from this book and after studying the ingredients to a mystery, is that not all mysteries will have suspects or will be based on a crime.

Alexis enjoyed the book and and it was fun to introduce her to a new genre. We are continuing with another Can Jansen and the Mystery at the Haunted House.

  1. Cam Jensen series is a nice introduction to the genre. Someone recommended Encyclopedia Brown to me, but we haven't tried it yet.

  2. I haven't read Encyclopedia Brown to Alexis yet but I loved those books when I was a kid. Those and the Box Car Kids were some of my faves.
