The 39 Clues

With each book written by a different author, this series gives us a unique opportunity to be exposed to a variety of writers, “select” our favorites and look into their other books too.

Parents and educators also are afforded a unique opportunity with this series. The website contest sponsored by Scholastic.com personalizes the adventure to the child, enhancing their involvement in the storyline. http://www.the39clues.com.  As fiction that looks back through history, each book can be used across the curriculum to tie social studies, literature and science together with fun projects and fascinating reading. Children can be encouraged to select amongst Franklin’s many inventions to experiment, research the history of those sites or people of most interest to them, or study the geography of the world. As a series, it allows tying these together from one book to the next. However, even more unique is the opportunity for English teachers and parents alike to talk with the child about the differences in the written story from one book to the next. No better opportunity awaits the child to develop their critical thinking skills and learn to make good decisions at choosing literature which matches their Do-Re-Mi value system.
