The Bailey School Kids books are awesome! They are funny with a just hint of scary and always offer a good mystery for young readers. These books are good for children who are just beginning with chapter books as well as those who just enjoy a good mystery. This one in particular was a favorite of mine because it was about soccer (which I love), but the series covers a wide range of topics that could appeal to any young reader.
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
My daugter LOVES the Bailey School Kids series. This is the only book from the series that I, personally, have read. It was cute, and definitely humorous, although some of the humor was lost on my 7 year old. Definitely not the same quality literature as "The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane" or "Ella Enchanted". But, this is a fun series of books for elementary age kids, and worth letting them enjoy.
