5.0 out of 5 stars Great interactive format., December 8, 2006

This review is from: Mystery Histry:Viking Longboat (Mystery History) (Hardcover)
I have used the Mystery History series for several years to help my students with reading difficulties. I have never had a student who did not absolutely love these books. Even my advanced readers enjoy them. As both a reading instructor and secondary social studies teacher, I find most children will stay with these books for long periods. They do not seem to feel they are practicing sustained reading because the interactive aspects of the books break up the text, eliminating the monotony of reading that the students usually feel. I use these books with kids of all grade levels. I usually use them to augment regular instruction but sometimes as stand alone texts. The books have lots of information and discussion often is expanded beyond what is contained in the books. There are puzzles, games and other activities for kids of all ages. I like to combine the reading with a related craft. For example, with the Mystery History of a Viking Longboat, we make 3 dimensional longboats out of brown craft paper. For my non-readers, I read and they listen and do the activities. I have bought many of these books through Amazon.com and other suppliers. I wish they were still in print so I could buy them and give them to the kids to keep. The students always ask to be allowed to keep them. I highly recommend the series. Be aware, however, that The Mystery History of a Pharoah's Tomb and The Mystery History of the Trojan Horse are a little more difficult reading than the other books in the series.
