Children and young adults love books with action, suspense and tension. The hero or heroine are independent and use logic to solve the puzzle. That is the reason mystery books are so popular.
Mystery books/novels/ebooks for children draw the reader’s attention. Children are unable to stop reading until the last page. Parents of children who usually avoid reading, now have to beg them to stop and go to sleep.
Mystery books are good for kids who do not like to read, reluctant readers. Find mystery books where the action is driven by conversation not text. Books with descriptive text bore young readers. Good authors describe place and inhabitants without slowing the story’s pace. Locate books that are two hundred pages or less. This is so the mystery book does not intimate child, tween and young adult reader.
Mystery books' subject matter vary over a wide range. This is excellent because children can find a chapter book or novel which matches their interests. There are books where the hero ride horses, hikes, cycle, swims or just hang out with friends.
The locale changes from one mystery book for children to another. This allows children to travel to different places. There are mystery books where the heroine is in Hong Kong, Brazil, England or Nigeria. In fact, one can travel to places anywhere on the planet. Don’t forget about space travel!
Parents and grandparents remember there are mystery books for kids who love gadgets, modern technology. Purchase and download ebooks. Also, graphic mystery novels abound for visually stimulated kids. Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys Undercover Brothers and Boxcar Children mystery stories are available as well as others. Cynthia Leitich Smith's vampire and werewolf mystery, Tantalize Kieren's Story, is available, too. Bookstores, online sellers and libraries have audiobooks and cassettes.
