My five year old son loves these stories, and I enjoy listening to them as well. The cameraderie among the siblings is refreshing and it is nice how resourceful the kids are. Each of the stories has an element of mystery to them, which keeps you interested. (My three year old, however, starts to get antsy with these stories, because they are so lengthy - we have to take Dr. Seuss and Nate the Great breaks for him!)
My son started listening to the Nate the Great audiobooks a few months back and quickly became bored with them. He loves that these A to Z Mysteries have a more involved story line and a bit more suited for "big kids". The language is appropriate (don't have to worry about hearing "shut up" or "stupid") and I like that the kids in the story are resourceful. The only complaint I have is that most of the stories I have listened to so far are about finding a thief...would be more interesting if they switched up the mystery a bit, but that's just me.
I listen to the audible version of this book together with my 7 year old granddaughter and we both loved it. You couldn’t help getting involved in the mystery of the story line because it was so well presented. My granddaughter became quite excited and couldn’t wait for Rebekah to discover who the mysterious thief was. What a great way to share a children’s story with a young child. My granddaughter couldn’t help talking about how clever and courage’s Rebekah was. I can highly recommend this story.
