Read with my kindergarten, 2nd, and 3rd grade daughters at bedtime. They loved it. The storyline, the characters, and the thought processes (their attempts to use and gain knowledge throughout critically thinking out the problem) were excellent. (Can you tell I'm taking a 'Foundations of Literature' course for my reading endorsement?).
Only issue with this book: we loved it so much we had a hard time settling down for bed/sleeping because they'd get so excited, trying to solve the mystery, and t

With A Spy in the White House, the Capital Mysteries series hasn't quite established itself yet, but it's getting there. In the story, KC Corcoran, the soon-to-be First Daughter, and her friend Marshall are getting ready for the president's wedding when they realize there's a spy releasing secret wedding details to the press.

With the plot keeping KC and Marshall around the White House, there isn't much in the way  of introducing the capital to children, but it's a solid, child-level mystery; Ron

This looks like it is a great series in size and content to follow The Magic Tree House Books. I love the illustrations and the map of Washington, D.C. in the front cover. We'll have to follow the reading of this group up with a trip in to see the actual places that we have read about! Peter likes the mysteries and problem solving...Ron Roy's A to Z mysteries are also fun ones for early chapter readers.

We are getting into the Capital Mysteries series. It's not a very believable group of stories, but each one is entertaining and they are fast reads. We prefer the A to Z Mysteries, but as we are moving to the DC area this summer, I hope these books get our girls more excited for the move.

This was a cute book about a girl named KC and her friend Marshal. KC's mom is scheduled to marry the President of the United States, but someone keeps telling a reporter all their secrets about the wedding. KC and Marshal do everything possible to keep her mother from calling off the wedding. It is a good book to read to children. It will definitely keep their attention.

I liked it. Casey's mom is getting married to the president of the United States so a spy is telling where they are going on their honeymoon. The spy had put a talk thing on the president's cat inside it's collar.

Davey: "One thing that I didn't like about this book is I didn't understand what was going on. I thought the book was interesting when Dad told me what was going on. I would not recommend this book because they wouldn't understand what was going on."

Some of the details in this book were quite silly. However, both of my children (ages 7 and 10), really enjoyed the story. Quick, fun, and funny too.
