The collection of "The adventures of the Bailey School Kids" stories are among my all-time favorite children's books. Witty, mischievous and fun, these short and silly books continue to bring giggles to the young and old. Just as I have enjoyed them as a kid, my own children also love them today. I even catch myself re-reading them (alone) from time to time. What can I say? I guess I'll always be a BSK kid at heart.

The kids are back at Camp Lone Wolf, where they have yet to win a rowing competition. At the same time, Captain Read shows up to whip the team into shape. Of course, he looks, acts, and talks like a pirate, and frequently expresses his belief that a pirate treasure is buried in the Bailey City area.

Enjoyable and mysterious.

The Bailey School Kids is a best-selling children's book series by Marcia Thornton Jones and Debbie Dadey. Its main characters are a group of four children (Eddie, Howie, Liza, Melody) who suspect some persons in the stories are popular folk lore or fairy tale characters. They are appealing because they mix a familiar story in with this group of kids. Mid-grammar school
Kate Fluckiger
Oh my. Pre-reading this before reading with a reading group. We want something that is not challenging for them. Just a fun read. Also, everyone loves pirates right? It is a little painful because I have to read it and stop to take notes on characters, possible unknown (to the students) words, etc.
Kelsey Nauert
Good transitional book for students in about third grade. A pirate is looking for treasure, and the Bailey School Kids get involved. Students don't seem to read this series much anymore, so I don't think I would have it in my classroom.
Molly
A silly series that creates more questions than it answers. It's great for formulating theories as well as predictions. The class dynamics should be very familiar to those of the Magic School Bus generation.
Logan
Read these all in while I was in middle school and loved them, giving them a 3.5-4.0 for my past 12 year old self.

I learn that don't believe in what you hear but believe in what you see.
