A book my 6 yr old loved, a little old for my preschoolers. A solid reading level 2 book, this reader has a good amount of advanced vocabulary words, but not so long that it discourages a new reader. Used it for his read out loud book, which was perfect. It took about 15 mins for him to read and had just enough new vocabulary words to make it challenging. Also, it was a fun and interesting story he could get into. He liked it so much, he asked for more by this author. Great reading book!
Took me back

I used to read these all the time when I was younger... when at the library recently I saw one of these books and remembered them, and decided to read one again. This one was very good and is recommend it to any young person.

Nate the Great books aren't that great. I hated them when I was a kid, yet I would always read them.The endings of the books were always the same, they figured out what or who did it.

Nate the Great books always made me fall asleep and always wasted my time. I would not recommend this book to anyone, especially little kids. If kids want real mystery, they should r ...more

Our girls, especially our youngest, love the "Nate the Great" mysteries. I'm not as big of a fan, but they are cute. This one involves Nate searching for a weed. It's a silly story, but Nate goes to the library, and that's always a bonus in a story.

This was a very clever story, in the tradition of a locked room puzzle, where a weed mysteriously disappeared from an enclosed porch. I really liked this one.
Sally Kilpatrick
I have to love this book for many reasons, not the least of which is Oliver is a pest who's lost his weed.
Level 4. Kiddo likes the detective work in the Nate the Great series.
Good book for my 2nd grader to read on his own. Also a good bedtime story.
I learned how to turn sick leaves,back into healthy laeves!
