This is a great book and an easy to read book for children as well. Cam and Eric want to play baseball in the park and need to find their ball. Cam is called Cam because she says "click" and usually remembers things. It is short for camera. When the ball gets lost, Cam must use her memory in order to find it.

Recommends it for: beginning readers and parents reading with them
We've read most of the stories in the Young Cam Jansen series by David A. Adler and Susanna Natti. They are perfect for beginning readers, with short, entertaining narratives and colorful illustrations. Our oldest really enjoys the memory quizzes at the end of the books, too.

This is a fun tale about a missing baseball, and Cam solves the mystery with her amazing photographic memory, as always. We enjoyed reading this book together.

As I read the ending of this book, I found myself wishing I'd had a chance to solve it myself. I know the books have to be kept short, but sometimes giving us all the clues so we can guess the end for ourselves would be a good idea, and a way to keep the books more exciting.

On the other hand, it's still a good book and was a lot of fun to read. I love Cam Jansen!

The Young Cam Jansen series is perfect for the transitional reader, not yet ready for longer chapter books. But with this one, I wish there were more clues for the reader to use to figure out the mystery.
this is the second young cam jansen book my 5 year old has gotten from the library. she wants to read them all.
I like mystery books. And if you like mystery books this would be a good one for you. Gage
