Mystery within a mystery June 9 2010
By Kerri Busteed - Published on
Format: Paperback
April's Calendar Mystery is a wonderful book. The initial mystery is who left the four friends plastic eggs with notes in them while they were having a sleep over. The notes lead the children on an easter egg hunt through the park. The children easily identify who left the eggs, but the second mystery is about to be unveiled. The children have to use a lot of thinking as to where to look, how to be safe around the animals at the park and how to safely fix a problem they stumble upon. I know I'm not being all to specific, but the fun of the book is watching the multiple mysteries unfold.

I personally was underwhelmed at first thinking I know this is a children's book, but at least make the mystery a little harder to figure out. That is, until I read on and realized the twists and turns the book would take. It was a wonderful adventure for the children and it teaches lessons along the way! I would recommend the series to any young reader who likes a good mystery. Read it with them and see who can figure it out first!

"April Adventure" by Ron Roy Oct. 4 2013
By Andrea - Published on
Format: Paperback
"April Adventure" by Ron Roy. Calendar Mystery Series.

Main Characters: Bradley, Brian, Nate, and Lucy. They are the younger siblings/cousin of the A-Z mysteries. These main characters are best friends with each other, as are their older sibllings/cousin.

In this book, the 4 main characters go on an April adventure. Someone leaves them notes, telling them to go and find Easter eggs. They go where the notes tell them. Easter egg finding is fun, especially if you are a kid, and they are filled with goodies! But before the egg hunt adventure, this mystery person leaves 4 jelly donuts with a note saying "eat me".

This egg hunt turns out to be quite an adventure.

I love the atmosphere of this book. Easter is fun.

The kids love animals, and they do something really nice and special in this book for an animal. (I can't tell you anything about it, as to not ruin the book.)

I love this series, and also the A-Z series. They have awesome examples of friendship, and good citizenship, such as honesty and voluteer work and taking care of animals. These books have an awesome example for young (and old) people to have and to follow. The examples are sometimes subtle, but that is usually the best way to get messages across. And in this horrible world, it is good to have books that have awesome examples, good citizenship, honesty, caring about each other and animals, etc. You won't be able to find a better example than in these books. I appreciate the encouragement in these books.

I used this book as a read aloud for my first graders during the month of April. I do have a few students who would have been able to read it but the rest of them are not there yet so I read it aloud and we discussed each chapter. I would say the reading level is end of first grade- beginning of third grade (obviously depends on your child's reading ability). We have read all of the calendar mysteries stories this year and love them.
