Museum Mysteries- Missing Museum Archives, and The Missing Crates
This is a traditionally published book, by Stone Arch Books an imprint of Capstone
So in the hierarchy of my sons ratings for his chapter books, nothing can apparently top The Muslims (now known as planet omar) by Zanib Mian and the Zayd Saleem series by Hena Khan. But according to him, these are close!⠀ ⠀ These are mysteries, and the best part for me is seeing the hijabi on the cover. I want my kids to see themselves in the books they read, so that they can feel included, and feel proud of their diverse identity.⠀ ⠀ As per usual for chapter books, here is my little reviewer’s opinion:⠀ ⠀ In the case of missing museum archives: ⠀ ⠀ first Amal, the main character, was at her house and her dad works at the museum, and she wanted to go there and her friends too. The next morning, they went with all her friends, and then they stopped at a circle where someone had something she wasn’t supposed to have. They told security, and the boss had told the guard to walk because she was going to look at the camera. But she was bad and wanted to erase what happened. They figured out it was her that did the bad thing, stealing the archives, and she got fired at the end, not Amals dad.⠀ The only muslim thing was amal wearing a hijab but it was a good book!⠀ ⠀ In the case of the missing crates:⠀ This one was not as good as the other. I give this one a 7. We found out who stole the crates, it was the guy who wanted the wigs to sell, instead of them being at the museum, but I didn’t really get why he did it. ⠀ It also got kind of slow at the end...⠀ ⠀ But I like how these books have easy words to read and I learned a lot about the museum. the pictures were really nice too. It was nice to see all the friends all solve the mystery, and Amal was part of that group of friends!⠀ ⠀ Get yours from www.crescentmoonstore.com
