Another great book of deductive reasoning for kids. I am using this in homeschool lessons on critical thinking. Encyclopedia Brown has a detective agency and for a quarter, any kid can get him to solve a crime, check out a story, or tell if a sale is really a good deal.

Oh man, you guys. I walked by this book in the New Section at the library and it caught my eye. I grabbed it and read the copyright date - 2010! An Encyclopedia Brown book published just last year? Of course I had to read it. My 8-year old self would have never forgiven me otherwise.

Still love Encyclopedia Brown!

Age range 5-8. Encyclopedia helps his friend Flash find out if he should get a picture of a UFO that is sold by the tigers. The tigers (a gang who bullies others)is selling them and claims they're real but with help from Encyclopedia YOU will find out if they are real. I loved the book because there are other mini stories in the book. I also like mystery's so its a good book for mystery lovers.
