    1) I love this series, or any chapter book that is part of a series, because if you read one and get hooked, then you are going to have to read the others. This is a book that I feel my future students would love with all of the mystery and suspense to go along with it. This book is about Cam and her friends trying to figure out who the thieves that stole the three computers are, and when they did it.

This book is about Cam and her friends trying to figure out who the thieves that stole the three computers are, and when they did it. The book is full of context clues such as them finding footprints in the snow, and searching the computer lab for clues. I don't want to spoil the ending if they find the thieves or not, so you will just have to read it! 2) Age level: 7-10 years old, Grade Level: 2nd-5th grade 3) Appropriate classroom use of this book could be used in a reading lesson, or a format for understanding the content using the quiz in the back of the book making sure the students listened to the book and know what it was about. 4) Individual students who might benefit from this book would be students that love mystery books and solving cases as the reader 5) As far as small group use this book could be used to learn the meaning of context clues in a storyline. Each literature group could have a different Cam Jansen mystery book, and could find the context clues in each storyline that lead up to solving the mystery. Therefore, they would get to be the detectives solving the mystery just like Cam. 6) As far as whole class use this book could be used to be read throughout the course of a week since it is a chapter book, preferably in winter to set the tone of the "Snowy Day Mystery", and the students would have to predict after each day of reading what it going to happen next, allowing them to be creative and think, using what they know from learning about context clues. 7) Related Books: All of the Cam Jansen Mystery series books, there are 34 of them all together 8) There is a Kindle version of this book, and there are also audio books and audio CDs for each of the Cam Jansen books

    Rebekah has enjoyed the early readers so much, that we moved up to the chapter books. We are half-way through, and it's been fun to see her wonder how Cam is going to solve the mystery. -we just finished lastnight. I actually got a little bored with Cam, but Rebekah really enjoys them. The way she figured out who stole with computers was very clever.

    my 6yo and I liked that some of the other children in the class were helping puzzle through the clues - but then it shifted to just Cam, which was a bit disappointing. I did feel like this story provided the reader with a bit more to hang on to in terms of figuring out the mystery than some of the other books in the series.

    I am trying out books in a series and I do love a mystery. Cam, whose real name is Jennifer Jansen who has a photographic memory soon is called Cam, short for camera. It was a good mystery about who stole 3 computers. Danny, a classmate who helps to solve the mystery told a pretty good joke. What goes Ha, Ha, thud? Someone who's laughing their head off! I just had to laugh.

    This mystery would be a great read for 2nd-4th graders. The most unique thing about Cam Jansen Mysteries is Cam's photographic memory. The author uses something that is not common, but also not unheard of, and turns it into a sort of super power that makes Cam the only one able to solve the mysteries.

    As a teacher it's a little hard for me to believe a teacher would let her students wander the school in search of clues to solve the mystery of some missing computers. Kids would probably love the idea of kids being given so much freedom. It was pretty cool how Cam was able to solve the mystery with her photographic memory.

    This was a good book for young readers who are starting to get into mystery books. It was also a good example of being observant and critically thinking through a situation. The fact that it's part of a series is an advantage.

    Age: Upper Elementary (3-6th) Genre: Contemporary Realistic Cute, easy to read beginning chapter book. I like the mystery in it and how they made the mystery kid friendly. Cam is special and has a special talent that can help her and I think that is what makes it fun. You can make that a teachable moment on "finding what makes you special" or "what your special talent is" There is also more books in this series which is good for kids to keep reading.

    Cam Jansen mysteries are classic early chapter books for kids in grades 1 and 2. In this installment, Cam heads to school on a snowy day. When her class discovers that several computers have been stolen from the school's computer lab, Cam and her photographic memory piece together the clues to discover who stole the equipment. As an adult, it's easy to pick apart this mystery. Like all Cam Jansen books, Cam's nickname and abilities to solve mysteries are explained.

As an adult, it's easy to pick apart this mystery. Like all Cam Jansen books, Cam's nickname and abilities to solve mysteries are explained. While Cam remembers the clue that ultimately solves the mystery, we never get to know who actually took the computers. And though Cam's classmate's jokes are lame to me, for a lot of Cam fans, those jokes are perfect! Recommended for kids in grades 1 and 2, this series appeals to both boys and girls and it's the perfect introduction for mystery fans to be. ***This month, I'm tackling a bunch of early chapter series. I recommend them all the time to my first and second graders but I'm ashamed to admit that I myself haven't read many of them. So onward and upward in my quest to be a better read librarian!***

    Cam Jansen is an elementary school student with a photographic memory who likes to solve mysteries. A little too convenient? Perhaps, but second-graders aren't going to care. In this twenty-fourth installment of Cam's adventures (and the first one I've read), Cam figures out what happened to the missing computers from the lab at her school. This a good beginning chapter book, interesting enough but nothing super exciting. Nothing offensive and no talking down to young readers.

I had no problems jumping in on this episode and it doesn't seem necessary to read these books in order.

    I didn't care much for this book. Even if I was a kid, I would have been bored to death. There is too much slow, repeat of what is going on and unnecessary "storytelling" (such as "Cam and Eric walked down the hall to their class. They entered the class and sat at their desks. They looked up at the teacher" etc.) and you never even find out who was the culprit behind the "Snowy Day Mystery". My kids sat through it, but I didn't enjoy it.

    Our girls just love the Cam Jansen series of stories and they kept asking me to read one more chapter over and over until we finished the book. It was an interesting story and although it was a simple mystery to solve, our girls loved it. Our oldest loves the memory challenges at the end, too. We are so glad that we discovered this series!

    This book kept my attention the entire time because I love mystery stories. I really like how the author wrote very descriptive for example setting the scene in the classroom in the morning. This book would be a great predictable book to show students how paying attention to details they can make a good prediction.

    This was my second time reading this. While my son enjoyed it, mostly the jokes, I found the character distinction rather confusing. I also didn't see how these students went half the day without even being in their classroom. The adults allowed them to roam the school. The kids were also unrealistically involved in the investigation.

    One day Cam Jansen and her friend play a memory game to test Cam's memory. One of the things Cam memorized is a blue car coming out of the teachers parking lot. She even memorized the license plate! When she finds out that three computers are missing she tries solving the mystery. Will she solve the mystery or will the thief win?

    Don't steal anything. Even if it is as little as an eraser or as big as the Statue of Liberty, don't steal anything that is not yours. Stealing hurts yourself and other people, especially the person you stole from.

    If you are looking for a good mystery book for your kids this is it. We read this together in one sitting and my kids (4 and 5) loved it. I know it would appeal to older children too. We really liked it.
