Product Description:

Reading comprehension just got a little help from Sherlock - Sam Sherlock, that is. For some children, paying attention to what they read or hear takes practice. High-interest material can help. This book leads students through many adventures with Sam, the famous detective, his dog, Watson, and a cast of other characters. Some "cases" are just foolish pranks; others are serious business. Regardless of the origin of the mystery, Sam is on the trail. Selections may be read by students or read by you. Students must read or listen closely to catch the clues needed to solve the "crime". Questions following each selection also give logic and thinking skills a workout as children work to put the clues together and draw a conclusion. The stories increase in difficulty as the book progresses, helping the reader to steadily increase his (or her) problem solving abilities. Other thinking skills get a workout, too, as questions ask children to predict outcomes, analyze motives, exercise judgment, apply information to other situations, etc. Answers are included. Is there a detective in the house?

My 7 year old loves mystery stories. I'm hoping these will be at a reading level suitable to him. He just finished 1st grade.
