June Jam by Ron Roy

Who's been munching on the strawberries???

Random House Books for Young Readers sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It was published at the end of March and can be found in your local bookstore now.  It's illustrated by John Steven Gurney.  This is number 6 in the Calendar Mystery series.

Father's Day is coming up and the Pinto boys want to make strawberry jam for their Dad as a surprise.  They have a couple of problems:  The jam must be cooked and they aren't allowed to use the stove; and, someone is taking bites out of the strawberries and destroying them.

Watching the group of children use a variety of ideas to catch the thief is great fun.  Your child might even have some ideas to offer you in addition to theirs.

These are simple easy readers for ages 6-9 and have enough action to keep their attention and make the read enjoyable.

Happy reading!
