Oh my! While I was telling you that, the big smelly cheese suddenly went MISSING!!! What to do? I haven't a clue, do you? Of course you do: We must call in the great SHERLOCK BONES. But it seems Sherlock needs our help. And how are we to go about that? By going inside this great big beautiful book, of course.
And will everybody live happily ever after? I think so. But all I really know for sure is that we all get to sing "The Farmer in the Dell" at the end.
Now for the writing, plotting, and other stuff. There is lots to like. First of all, there is the silliness and the word play which makes SHERLOCK BONES a good read-aloud. There's bits that rhyme, and just as good, there are word choices like 'cantankerous' and 'scrumptious' that are not only descriptive, but educational. (Sorry, I love books for younger kids that use bigger words.)
The character of Sherlock Bones is very appealing, as is the fact that there is a mystery to resolve. The children I have read to like simple mysteries and the one of the missing cheese is at the right level for the preschool to early elementary ages.
As a mom who is totally into Edu-tainment, I particular like how Ms. Crummel reinforces how 'clues' work at the end of the book. During the story children see Sherlock Bones listening to witnesses and writing in his notebook. In the last pages, we get to see the notes that are based on THE 5 SENSES. What was 'seen' and what Sherlock concluded from that. What was 'smelled' and what Sherlock concluded from that. Adults can easily take this fun book and build quite a few lessons from it.
Great artwork and fun, spirited lyrics should make this a popular book with kids.
Adults (parents/teachers) should find this a good read-aloud that could be tied into mini-lessions about the 5 Senses, and logic/reasoning. The book is large enough that a small circle of children should be able to see and enjoy the artwork.
My problem when I first started reading hte book was the first page. I thought the written portion was rather blah as were the next few pages. The book picked up for me from there, but the kids enjoyed it from the beginning.
I like to read them books that causes them to ask questions, to question and most of all enjoy a good story--this book was great for all of those. They loved the story of Sherlock Bones, the brainy bloodhound, who goes on a search for the missing smelly cheese. They asked questions like "Nana what does cantankerous mean?" or "Why does the cheese smell?" Obviously as they asked a lot of questions about words used in the story and certain situations, the book became a nice "educating" tool.
The two older kids also enjoyed the clues that Sherlock picked up along his sleuthing ways. Both of them love to write. I had read the book in advance and knew at the end there were lists of clues organized by the senses (see, smell, taste, feel and hear) so I had them get out their paper and pencils and make their own lists. They thought this was a great game.
As a parent or grandparent you know when a child asks you to read a book over and over that it touches something in the child. Well the kids love this book and we have read it over and over. Good thing I like it too!
