To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I got this book for my almost ten year old grandson. He saw it had a girl on it and gave me a look. He's supposed to be doing extra reading during the summer. I told him to read a chapter a day.
He sat down and read it. He has a man cave behind our couch and sets the Kindle up there. I heard him giggling. When he climbed out he was laughing and told me I should read the book since I write scary books. I asked him if he liked it and he said "Definitely" but made me promise not to tell any of his friends since it has a picture of a girl on the cover.
I asked him to rate it from 1 - 5 stars and he said he'd give it 5 stars. I read it when he went home and it was a good book. Both of us would recommend it for kids. I'll be getting the others in her series.
I read this book aloud with my 9-year-old (boy) and my 12-year-old (girl). Both of the kids enjoyed the book and asked if we can buy another book in the series. Yes, of course! Any time they ask for books (as opposed to toys or video system games) the answer is YES! The three of us took turns reading a chapter each, the story was engaging and it was suitable for both kids' reading level (not to mention that I, Mom, enjoyed it, as well). Also, they were able to relate to the characters and plot, which helped hold their attention. I asked each of them what they liked best about the story and the 9-year-old said it was fun and he liked the mystery. The 12-year-old said she liked the ending, sort of a life lesson/moral of the story wrap-up. Perfect! If you're looking for a good read -- I would recommend Nanny P's stories.
Rebekah - Girl Detective #4: Ghost Hunting is another fantastic read in the Rebekah Series with just the right amount of 'spooky' and plenty of mystery. It's also full of fun as well, if you appreciate the humor behind a child with a pet mouse that often ends up where it shouldn't.
Rebekah - Girl Detective #4: Ghost Hunting is a must read for youngsters and parents both and I have to say the author has a good imagination as well, because the story line of this story is one that will definitely resound with children and their parents.
Do yourself a favor and explore the 'Rebekah Series' with your children if you want to foster a love of reading with them.
This was a great read which I read in class with my 10 year old students at the end of a day. When I asked for their comments, they all agreed that it was funny and a bit spooky. I could see that the book had characters that they could relate to and the mystery plot certainly kept them engaged. A fun short story for kids.
Rather than me, my daughter should be writing the review. She loves these stories of Rebekah and Mouse, and this one was no exception. The best way to treat a sensitive subject like ghosts is with the light-heartedness in these wonderful children's books. Fully recommended to children aged 9-12 (and their parents).
This story had enough suspense, mystery and scariness (and humor too, especially in the library) to hold my kids' attention from start to finish. And neither of them could guess the ending. Great job, Nanny P! This is one of our favorites in the series.
We have loved every one of Nanny P's Rebekah books and this one was too cute to pass up! My daughter babysits a couple of girls that are in elementary school and they love this series...always excited to read another Rebekah book! Keep them coming!
