The 39 Clues Series
I have so many reasons to be thankful for these books.
1. My kids and I listened to several on CD in the car. I was great family time. We laughed a lot and talked a lot about what was happening and what would happen.
2. All the kids at school that read them - it keeps them reading and reading.
3. Because they are in a series and there are so many, I know it's a great book to suggest to reluctant readers because if they get hooked there are many more books to keep them reading.
4. Because they are written by many authors it introduces kids to a variety of authors and the rest of the books they have written
