Leela and Ben MysteriesAges: 8 - 12
By High Noon Books
Leela and Ben Mystery series was created for struggling readers between the ages of 8 and 12 who are reading at a first grade readability level. This hi-lo series features 12-year-old detectives Leela and Ben, who solve mysteries around town with the help of Ben's dog, Sir. There's no danger and no edgy themes, just a lot of light-hearted fun. Straightforward, simple stories and a 'clue review' at the end of each book help struggling readers solve the mysteries along with Leela and Ben.
We really enjoyed the soccer field Mystery and the Case of the Barking Clocks! What a great series for the students who need something extra engaging! The sentences are short, easy to comprehend, and the short chapters let children know they are making progress. This mystery helped my 3rd-grade boy think about clues, evaluate information, and make inferences based on the story - all great critical thinking skills! I'll be sure to recommend this series to my fellow teacher friends.
