great, brief mysteries....great voice talent

My 10 & 12 year old girls still love these books. When we're crafting or working with our hands, we play audiobooks. They love thinking through the storyline to hypothesize on the solution. Great vocal talent, too. The chapters/mysteries are brief enough to keep their attention, while the collection serves as a fun mental exercise at a good pace. EB stands the test of time!

Great resources for ESL!

Any additional comments?

For the sake of the students who are studying English, I hope all the series would be published.

Great Jumpstart to Reading!

My son was having a hard time getting excited about reading chapter books. I got this audio book and had him read along in the printed copy. He read straight through and loved it! Encyclopedia Brown was always one of my favorites when I was young. It's great to see how timeless and inspiring these books are for young readers. Everyone loves a good mystery!
