With summer here, kids may find themselves interested in everything but reading books. However it is extremely beneficial to put aside a few minutes everyday for your child to read. From building comprehension and vocabulary to developing problem solving skills, reading is a fun way to keep children actively learning. Finding a book that gets kids enthusiastic about reading can be a challenge which is why I was excited to learn about the James Patterson’s latest book, Treasure Hunters: Peril at the Top of the World.
Treasure Hunters: Peril at the Top of the World is an action-packed book recommended for ages 8-12. The storyline draws children in right away with its unique characters, the Kidd family, and their hunt for missing treasure. At the start of the book, the Kidd family begins their adventure in Florence, Italy to search for an ancient mummy. From there, they head to Russia to find stolen paintings by several famous artists including Leonardo da Vinci and Rembrandt. As they follow clues, they eventually end up in the North Pole. While there, they can’t help but capture the effects of global warming on the arctic. The story is full of action and suspense but also stays lighthearted and fun by weaving in humorous comics.
My daughter loved this book and was hooked as soon as she picked it up. I was a little worried about the length of the book, 384 pages, but the pace of the story kept her engaged and wanting to see what was going to happen next. Her excitement with the plotline maintained her interest in reading regularly each day which was wonderful to see. I also loved that she was learning about different countries, languages, and artists as she enjoyed the book.
I highly recommend Treasure Hunters and hope you enjoy this book as much as my daughter and I have. Be sure to check out our mother/daughter review video below!
