My Thoughts and Review:
I am a mom of 3 boys and we are Avid Readers. I find it difficult to find good, wholesome reading material for my boys to read. My boys and I used this as a Read Aloud for the past couple weeks and we throughly enjoyed it. Boys are adventurous and LOVE Adventure, and The League and the Lantern is FILLED with Adventure and fun. We loved the mystery, suspense, adventure woven throughout the book. The boys especially enjoyed that the book happens in Chicago, and they recognized some of the places mentioned. The book is not only "fun" reading, but it has wonderful Educational Value. 140 Vocabulary words are hidden throughout the book and many historic sites are also mentioned! We download the Vocabulary Guide in the Bonus Stuff area of the website. Many other "bonuses" there also!
If you are looking for Wholesome reading material for your Middle School boys and girls, we highly recommend The League and The Lantern. We are excited that this is only book one is this series, looking forward to future books!
