"This guide to using mysteries in the classroom to teach reading strategies for grades one through six is filled with useful material. . . . The book is very attractively laid out, and the activities are age appropriate and fun as well as tools for learning. This would be a way of freshening up a unit on mysteries or just updating reading instruction overall. Librarians who teach elementary students for library time could probably use the lessons and ideas to their advantage as well. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
"This is a very complete guide for teachers who want to use mystery books in their reading programs. With the activities and evaluations given, I think other genres could be incorporated, although, obviously, teachers would have to find their own titles and authors for other genres. For those looking for suggestions for guided reading titles and activities, this book would be an excellent resource. Recommended for elementary and middle school teachers." - Catholic Library World
