The official hashtag is #ReadYourWorld for social media mentions. There are dozens and dozens of participating blogs and each has something of interest to share. This is the page with the linky of all the posts.

The Case of the Missing Museum Archives

This post is about the book The Case of the Missing Museum Archives by Steve Brezenoff. I made a free printable with a few student work pages for teachers and homeschools. This book is in the Museum Mysteries series, and is set in Capitol City. There are four friends who work together to solve the mystery and help someone who was unfairly blamed for a theft.  Amal is the Somali female protagonist and she is 11.  Her American Indian friend, Raining, is interested in Ojibwe culture. All the friends are associated with the museums in the city which provides many teachable moments throughout the stories. The other friends are Clementine who is 13 and love art, while Wilson Kipper is 10 and is interested in dinosaurs. Learning abounds in this series of books. This book is set in the Air and Space Museum, so facts about astronauts and historical space events are included.

    This sounds like such an interesting series with a diverse group of friends. I bet my kids would like it when they get a bit older. We will definitely keep it in mind.
