    When things go missing from the cabins of campers at Camp Dakota, the troublesome Braelin Walker is blamed, immediately. As Braelin contests his quilt, campers are forced to look elsewhere for the guilty person. Clues slowly lead the children to the culprit and all ends well. The messages are many in this book as scientific fact is interspersed throughout the fictional text and readers walk away with both a moral and scientific lesson. Great for those who enjoy mysteries and like reading about t When things go missing from the cabins of campers at Camp Dakota, the troublesome Braelin Walker is blamed, immediately.

    1/27/2019 ~ This graphic novel series set at a summer camp is packed with information about science topics (#2 focuses on light). There are 6 camper characters with 2 counselors. One pair of twins is Hispanic, two brothers are Black, and the other two campers and both counselors are White. I appreciate the visual diversity and the scientific information. However, I felt that the characterization was very thin and the plot somewhat contrived.

There are 6 camper characters with 2 counselors. One pair of twins is Hispanic, two brothers are Black, and the other two campers and both counselors are White. I appreciate the visual diversity and the scientific information. However, I felt that the characterization was very thin and the plot somewhat contrived. The fact that this is a graphic novel (loosely speaking, since it's only 46 pages long), though, trumps all. Students will EAT. IT. UP. This volume raised two issues for me that book #1 didn't. First, race: In this volume, items are disappearing from campers' cabins. One of the White characters (a girl) abruptly blamed one of the Black characters (a boy) of being the thief. She had no evidence, and several other characters took her word for the accusation. I feel that this plot device reifies the white privilege that we often see in U.S. culture, and as a purchaser of books for an elementary library, I have to be aware of the subtle and subconscious effect of these stereotypes. On a related matter, is the issue of the inclusion of an alleged Dakota Sioux legend. The use of this legend at the Dakota Camp in the story seems to be an appropriation. In the current climate of #ownvoices, I am skeptical of indigenous representation when I have not been able to verify the information. I was able to verify that the name of the hawk in the book is a variation of the Sioux work for hawk, chaytan, and that Chinook salmon can be found in Dakota. I became aware of this series, because a number of my students found an online version and started asking for them in our elementary school library. Fortunately, I was able to find print copies at my public library so I could preview them.

    I have grabbed this series to engage my son who loves science, graphic novels, his summer camp and a mystery. This is one I think he will relate to as he has dealt with being singled out for something he didn't do and the lesson of apologies as well as fact finding are great life lessons.

    Good book for elementary aged kids. Teaches science without feeling educational.

    1. I think this graphic novel is a great addition to any collection. It speaks primarily to science, but also offers insight to what can happen as a result of false accusations. The science portion of the novel is really neat, as it offers projects for the readers to experiment with themselves in order to learn more about how light works. 2. The layout of this novel would likely suit grades 3-6 best, as it is colorful and a pretty easy read. I think incorporating this novel into a science projec 1.

The layout of this novel would likely suit grades 3-6 best, as it is colorful and a pretty easy read. I think incorporating this novel into a science project would be a really cool thing for students to experience, particularly during a lesson on how light works since that is what the book’s experiments pertain to. 3.

    I was able to get a copy of the second book of the Summer Camp Science Mysteries just before printing. A total of four books should be out this coming month for readers and classrooms to enjoy. The second book was just as good as the first. This time the lesson is on light. The experiments include making a periscope out of mirrors and milk cartons. The plot was enjoyable – shiny objects are missing from the cabins, one boy is singled out by the other students.

It’s got more lessons than just light, this would be a good book to look at jumping to conclusions and accusing without evidence. I really hope classrooms all over the place are picking up this series and I still hold to my opinion that it would make a good PBS series.

    Number 2 in a series of short graphic novel mysteries about different scientific concepts (other books in the series tackle matter, rocks, and adaptations. I thought the story and the art were just okay, but these books could appeal to kids who are already interested in science; I could also see these being used in the classroom.

    An easy read. Are graphic books considered a comic book? It look and felt like I was reading one. The story takes place at Camp Dakota. Their is a thief among them and the blame goes to the trouble child Braelin Walker. While learning science topic of light reflection it helps them to solve the mystery of finding the Science thief.
