Fireworks at the FBI by Ron Roy
Summary: KC and her friend Marshall are watching the fourth of July fireworks with the president of the United States when they see smoke and sparks in the distance. It’s more fireworks, but they are not part of the holiday plan. They’re coming from the FBI Building! Is it just a prank? Or are these fireworks masking a bigger mystery . . . and a capital crime?
This was my “just for fun” read for February.
What I liked about the book: I really like all the books by Ron Roy. They are a great way to introduce young readers to mysteries. His original mystery series (A to Z Mysteries) is very popular with my younger students. This is a quick easy read – great for helping students to practice their critical thinking skills. It is a great read aloud for the classroom or bedtime. It would also work well with a social studies lesson on the nation’s capital.
What I didn’t like about the book: As with all the books I’ve read by this author, I liked it all!
Recommended for 2nd grade and up (though would as a 1st grade read aloud.)
