Sam's Top Secret Journal: Memorial Day

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00T8V3BJE/ref=series_rw_dp_sw/183-0927266-8668915

It's not Memorial Day, but this book is a beautiful story with a patriotic theme intertwined.  This excellent book in a series will have your tweenies wanting more of Sam's top secret mysteries.  Though this is book three in the series, I'm sure that each can be stand alone books because they each involve solving of a new and different mystery.  I was most interested in this book as is hits home with me in more ways than one:  Sam is a Down Syndrome little girl, and the main character in this series and I have a down's syndrome niece.    Also, I work with special needs in my profession as a educator.  Sam rises to her special needs challenge and come away flying high on the spectrum.  This is an excellent book with many many good leads to teach doing the right thing:  bullying, stealing and plan old having kid fun.  I so totally enjoyed this book from front to back it kept me turning the pages.  It will go in my classroom library for sure.  I look forward to reading many more books from this series.

  1. Thanks so much for the review. Nice that you have a personal connection too. The book series is great for a school to have in the library (as you know) before and while a child with a difference is in the classes. We would be happy to send your nieces family a set for her school :-)
