Are you looking for a good, early reader chapter book to get your new reader excited about books?
I feel like my kids grow so fast that by the time I have found something that works for them, whether it be a pair of shoes my four year old likes and is willing to wear or a book series that gets my ten year old excited about reading, by the time I find that thing that works, they have already started to grow out of it! Well, if this is the case for you and your child, I feel you! These darn kids just keep growing!
There comes a point when kids, usually ages 6-8, start to want more "big kid" books. They want more chapter books and less picture books. So, you go to the book store or library and check out a few chapter books, but when your child tries to read them, the books aren't targeted for their age group. Hero Dog! Hilde Cracks The Case is perfectly targeted for newly minted readers, ages 5-8.
In this book, Hilde is a ten-year-old journalist and adventurous sleuth who loves to investigate mysteries and report about them in her news articles.
What we love most about this first addition to the book series is that the main character, Hilde, is a real girl and a real journalist! Ten-year-old Hilde Lysiak began her own newspaper at the age of seven and has been dedicated to reporting news in her hometown. If you would like more information about Hilde and her new book series, check out her website here.
