Young Cam Jansen and the Zoo Note Mystery #9 is for the young reader making the transition from a picture book to a chapter book. The early reader chapter book has thirty-two pages just like a picture book. However, the story is divided into five chapters.
Young Cam is a student whose real name is Jennifer. No one calls her Jennifer, they call her Cam. Cam is short for “the camera.” Cam’s memory is like a camera. One click and the scenes are in storage forever. She remembers everything she sees. Young Cam uses the ability to help others.
In Young Cam Jansen and the Zoo Note Mystery, her best friend desperately needs her help. The class is taking a trip to the Zoo today. If the teacher does not have a signed permission slip, the student cannot go. Eric Shelton has lost his permission slip. He will have to remain at school. Help Cam!
Young readers relate to Eric’s plight. They know the rule about permission slips. No one wants to stay at school and miss a class trip. Readers will become quickly engrossed in Young Cam Jansen and the Zoo Note Mystery.
The Young Cam Jansen Mystery Books Series teach children to observe the world about them. The books teach children to think logically. At the book’s end, there is a Young Cam Jansen Memory Game. Allow children to play the game and test their memory.
Young Cam Jansen and the Dinosaur Game, Young Cam Jansen and the Missing Cookie and Young Cam Jansen and the Lost Tooth are the first Cam Jansen Mysteries. Join the young girl detective on her earlier adventures.
