B is for bandit...

The Green Lawn Savings Bank has been robbed! When a private detective comes to Dink's door looking for the kid who videotaped the crime, Dink and his friends volunteer to find him. After all, there's a reward! But tracking down one red-headed kid isn't so easy, especially if he doesn't want to be found. Can the trio find that kid, and his tape, before the bandit does?

    " my mentor teacher in the class that I am interning at was reading this book aloud to the students a little bit each day and I got the opportunity to read it aloud to them a few days. AS I read it to them and as I watched as she did, the students were always so engaged. They were always excited to listen to it and sad when the chapter was over. Mysterious are great for read aloud in the classroom because they make the students want to keep reading to find out what happens. They love to predict who the "bad guy" is and argue for their reasoning. Many of the students in my class are now reading other books from the a to z mystery series. Once I saw how much the students in my classroom enjoyed the book I decided to read it myself because I had missed the entire beginning. I too enjoyed the book and would definitely use it in my own classroom for read aloud and also have the entire series in my class library. "

    " The Bald Bandit is the 2nd book in this A to Z Mysteries series by Ron Roy. I liked this one a lot more than the first one. I especially enjoyed the ending in which the kids - Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose - did something good with their reward money by giving it to the boy who had taken the video. That was the best part of the story for me! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alondra | 1/19/2014

    " I found this one very intriguing, and I almost missed the ending coming, it wasn't really until they got their hands on the evidence that I saw the twist coming. I love when an ending is a surprise like that. "

    " Fairly predictable, but a good book to read aloud with children. Our girls really enjoy the A to Z Mysteries and we are eager to read the next one. We aren't reading them all in order, but so far it's not a big deal. "
