A mystery for all ages.

Reading is a very important aspect in our lives, my girls just love to have stories read to them and as they get older, I'm looking to longer almost chapter like stories to read them each night. It's nice to get into a story with them where they can use their thinking skills and have something to relate to other than talking animals for once.

A mystery story that intrigues them and lets their thinking skills work , Sunny's Adventures is a great book that allows them to help solve problems while learning valuable lessons at the same time.

In the book Sunny's Adventures we meet with a young girl named Sunny. Sunny is faced with many issues in both her neighborhood and school, while reading about her adventures and problems the book encourages it's readers to help Sunny and put on their detective hat while helping her to figure out some of the various mysteries. Each chapter of the book has a different adventure with questions and clues for the readers to interact with.

Leketha Marie Johnson is the author of Sunny's Adventures and believes that children's mystery books will not only excite children to read, but also promote their thinking skills and using their minds to help solve the problems. I think Leketha is right, my oldest Lyric just loved the story and was excited each night to read a different chapter and learn how to solve the next mystery in line.

This is a great chapter read for a children's mystery book, Sunny's Adventures should be at the top of your list for your child, they'll learn great lessons about helping others and use their thinking skills at the same time. Invite Sunny into your home.

Visit www.sunnysadventures.com to learn more about the book and author and where you can purchase your next copy of Sunny's Adventures. There's also some great coloring pages to print out and some more exciting things on the website you and your child can check out. I can't wait to see a series published for these books, I know my girls are looking forward to another adventure with Sunny again.
