Concord Cunningham, the Scripture Sleuth books are wonderful. They're the kind of book that get with the intention that my daughter will read them as part of her schooling. But, before we even get the opportunity to incorporate them into school, my daughter has devoured the book - reading it cover to cover. The only time she stops is to race across the room and grab her Bible from a shelf to look up the next clue!
Concord Cunningham is a wholesome, Christian schoolboy who helps his Dad solve mysteries. Think "Encyclopedia Brown" but Christian. The books teach Christian values and respect for Parents. Concord solves mysteries by finding one last clue in his concordance - the Bible reference for the clue is given at the end of the short story so that the reader can look up the clue in his or her Bible. This way the reader is learning logic (by solving the mystery) and Bible reference skills all at the same time. And it's all presented in a format that couldn't be more fun.
No - this isn't an "affiliate link" I didn't get a free copy or any money - I just LOVE how much my daughter loves this series, and wanted to share it!
