Detective Books for Kids

Sometimes the key to building a love for reading in children is simply to find the types of books that they love to read. I love detective stories (and so does my 2nd grader!), so I was thrilled to find this list of detective books at the PBS Kids' history Detectives site. It has current favorites (A-Z and Cam Jansen) as well as classics (Nate the Great and Encyclopedia Brown) and everything in between.

Did you know that "Reading for Pleasure" is one of the 40 assets? That's how critical reading is to healthy child development!
