My son is a 1st grader and a more advanced beginner reader. He is past the one sentence per page books and needing more challenging books that have simple words but more of a story to hold his interest. Young Cam Jensen and the Missing Cookie does just that. The fact that it's a mystery held his attention and helped him to problem solve by deciding what happened to the cookie. It also taught him that if you don't look at all the evidence and jump to conclusions you can hurt someone's feelings. I thought it was an excellent book for him and I'm planning on buying him more in that series.
I have a 2nd grader who is an average reader. We have a great time readying these together. It's fun but also gives her a bit of a challenge. She feels great as she can now read "Chapter" books! LOVE THE SERIES!
My son loves mysteries and we have been delighted with the Cam Jansen books. In this one she must not only use her great photographic memory but also a little deducing to figure out the culprit that took the cookie. Recommended for ages 5-8 years.
When our boys were middle school aged and preteens, they enjoyed reading the Cam Jansen mystery series by David Adler. Later, we found out that Adler also wrote some "Young Cam Jansen" mysteries for beginning readers. In this one, which I picked up at a used curriculum sale just to see what it is like, Jennifer Jansen, who has a photographic memory and was nicknamed "Camera" which got shortened to "Cam," has a friend at school named Jason Jones who finds that his big chocolate chip cookie, which he had put in his lunch box that morning, is missing. While Jason goes around checking the other kids' lunchboxes and accusing them of stealing his cookie, Cam closes her eyes, says "Click," and remembers something which helps her solve the mystery. Books like this are perfect for young children, especially those who are interested in mystery stories, because they not only help to develop critical thinking but also are fun to read.
This is a great book for beginning readers. The sentences are short, the words are mostly easy, sprinkled with some compound words and onomatopoeia, which are so much fun to read with children. The bright colors and details of Susanna Natti’s illustrations will delight. There is a simple story about a missing cookie and lovable characters first or second grade children will identify with. Parents can find other books in this series featuring the main character if their child likes this book.
My kindergartner has recently started reading chapter books, though she continues to read readers and these Cam Jansen readers are among her favorites. This book is a Level 2 book which is recommended for ages 5-8, Grades K-2. The story is divided into several chapters and is illustrated throughout which motivates young readers to develop an interest in the story.Cam Jansen is an interesting character (personally I find her to be a refreshing character compared to the annoying Junie B. Jones character which my daughter likes). The reason for her nickname Cam is because she has an excellent memory like a camera (hence the shortened nickname "Cam"), and uses this talent to solve mysteries. Cam is usually accompanied by her good friends in solving mysteries relating to everyday things. In this story, Cam helps her friend Jason find his missing chocolate chip cookie during lunch at school. The story is engaging and makes an excellent reader for young children.
My daughter is 5 (almost 6) and in kindergarten. She progressed very quickly this year from sounding out words, to reading simple picture books to needing something at the next level - easy enough that she could read it on her own but more challenging, with a real plot. I went to the library and read and looked at a lot of books with her - Magic Treehouse, Cam Jansen (the older version), Junie B. Jones - and found that Young Cam Jensen was just right (as they say!) - it captured her interest, she can read one in one or two sittings, and she has a great feeling of acocmplishment since it's a "big-kid" chapter book. Once she's read through this series I think she'll be ready for the others I mentioned, which are just a bit too hard for her to read on her own now. (Personally I find the writing flat and dull - I prefer the books we read together, like Roald Dahl - but she's happy!)
Cam is a woderful girl, helps people uncover mysteries and finding things.Cam's amazing memory clicks into action"Cam jansen can find mysteries everywhere even in the store, inside a classroom or in a house.In young Cam Jansen and the missing cookie Cam is finding out who stoled Jasons with what? if you know if you want to know who stoled Jason's cookie read this Cam Jansen book.Who do you think is going to be? I like this book so much that I didn't want to put it down because Cam Jansen are my favorite books.I love Cam Jansen books and I want to read them all beacause I only read 3 books so far.I recomend this book to everyone and anyone who likes to read Cam Jansen books and the people who likes mysteries.
