Didn t quite work for me still like the diverse cast of kids and the reading level Useful as a jumping off point to talk about prejudice However, the final confrontation with the security guard just didn t read as realistic, and there were no real amends made for previous hurtful statements Also, as much as the end of the book makes it seem likely that the accused boy was the culprit, he was never caught in the act, admitted anything or had any evidence linking him to the vandalism aside f Didn t quite work for me still like the diverse cast of kids and the reading level Useful as a jumping off point to talk about prejudice However, the final confrontation with the security guard just didn t read as realistic, and there were no real amends made for previous hurtful statements Also, as much as the end of the book makes it seem likely that the accused boy was the culprit, he was never caught in the act, admitted anything or had any evidence linking him to the vandalism aside from proximity to damaged pieces So in many ways, he was accused just like the other kids were, with no opportunity to answer the accusation Troubling Four young friends, whose parents all happen to be museum directors in Capitol City, find vandalism in different museum displays Then their attempts to befriend the son of a new security guard are rebuffed It doesn t take a genius to guess who the vandal is Potential Problems Predictable, forced, and contrived I did not care for this book as its attempt at showing a diverse and politically correct and intelligent beyond their years group of kids, who also love history, was thinly veile Four young friends, whose parents all happen to be museum directors in Capitol City, find vandalism in different museum displays Then their attempts to befriend the son of a new security guard are rebuffed It doesn t take a genius to guess who the vandal is Potential Problems Predictable, forced, and contrived I did not care for this book as its attempt at showing a diverse and politically correct and intelligent beyond their years group of kids, who also love history, was thinly veiled behind a really lame story This book is an insult to a child s intelligence great story, easy fun read. AR levels in the 4 s diverse characters, just over 100 pages and has picturestelling a story by solving a mystery I tried so hard to love this series, but with this volume, I finally have to admit defeat The mysteries are painfully simple, and the kids seem to suspect anyone they see, whether or not it makes any sense There is no real depth to the characters This volume, too, had characters who were openly Islamophobic, and yet not only were there no consequences for their cruelty to Amal, the narrative also seemed to absolve the characters I was disappointed, ultimately. I liked the diverse characters who work together to solve a crime the adults do not solve Many historical facts are sprinkled throughout the text making this a multi genre book with non fiction and fiction working together to help bring history alive They also have to deal with prejudice and hateful statements which offer rich classroom discussion opportunities How would the reader have handled the situations Would he or she have been able to resolve it happily as the book characters were ab I liked the diverse characters who work together to solve a crime the adults do not solve Many historical facts are sprinkled throughout the text making this a multi genre book with non fiction and fiction working together to help bring history alive They also have to deal with prejudice and hateful statements which offer rich classroom discussion opportunities How would the reader have handled the situations Would he or she have been able to resolve it happily as the book characters were able to do Recommend for ages 8 and upvery good book for group discussion in schoolsThis book was given to me for review for Multicultural Children s Book Day 2016 and is being donated to a Minnesota school SM
