Rebekah has enjoyed the early readers so much, that we moved up to the chapter books. We are half-way through, and it's been fun to see her wonder how Cam is going to solve the mystery.
-we just finished lastnight. I actually got a little bored with Cam, but Rebekah really enjoys them. The way she figured out who stole with computers was very clever.
my 6yo and I liked that some of the other children in the class were helping puzzle through the clues - but then it shifted to just Cam, which was a bit disappointing. I did feel like this story provided the reader with a bit more to hang on to in terms of figuring out the mystery than some of the other books in the series.
Cam Jansen mysteries are classic early chapter books for kids in grades 1 and 2. In this installment, Cam heads to school on a snowy day. When her class discovers that several computers have been stolen from the school's computer lab, Cam and her photographic memory piece together the clues to discover who stole the equipment.

As an adult, it's easy to pick apart this mystery. Like all Cam Jansen books, Cam's nickname and abilities to solve mysteries are explained. While Cam remembers the clue t

Ages 6-9. Cam Jansen, famous for her photographic memory, investigates the case of the stolen school computers in this snowy mystery. Part of a large series of beginning chapter books, this Cam Jansen mystery brings fresh and witty dialogue as well as more complex human emotions to the table--including a class clown whose jokes nobody likes and a friend of Cam's who shows off her ability to solve mysteries when she isn't so sure. The black and white illustrations illicit a nostalgia for snowman ...more

I didn't care much for this book. Even if I was a kid, I would have been bored to death. There is too much slow, repeat of what is going on and unnecessary "storytelling" (such as "Cam and Eric walked down the hall to their class. They entered the class and sat at their desks. They looked up at the teacher" etc.) and you never even find out who was the culprit behind the "Snowy Day Mystery". My kids sat through it, but I didn't enjoy it. I probably will not be reading any more Cam Jansen books t ...more

Cam Jansen is a very observant girl with a photographic memory. When three computers are stolen from the computer lab at school on a snowy day, she uses her abilities to figure out what happened. She is aided by her best friend Eric, and Danny (the most annoying character you've ever read) tags along too.

Our girls just love the Cam Jansen series of stories and they kept asking me to read one more chapter over and over until we finished the book. It was an interesting story and although it was a simple mystery to solve, our girls loved it. Our oldest loves the memory challenges at the end, too. We are so glad that we discovered this series!
One day Cam Jansen and her friend play a memory game to test Cam's memory. One of the things Cam memorized is a blue car coming out of the teachers parking lot. She even memorized the license plate! When she finds out that three computers are missing she tries solving the mystery. Will she solve the mystery or will the thief win?

Don't steal anything. Even if it is as little as an eraser or as big as the Statue of Liberty, don't steal anything that is not yours. Stealing hurts yourself and other people, especially the person you stole from.
