Kids love great mysteries – whodunits, crimes, thrillers, detectives, and capers! Mystery books help children develop essential critical thinking and problem solving skills. The five critical elements of a mystery story are characters, setting, plot, problem, and solution. These elements keep the adventure rolling along as readers collect the necessary clues to solve the mystery. Mystery books are also a great way to introduce new genres to young readers. Happy clue hunting!
