9780635102300: The Giggling Ghost Girl Scout Mystery (Girl Scout Mysteries)

Christina, who has a knack for stumbling upon (and solving) real-life mysteries, heads to Savannah, GA, where she and her Girl Scout friends are eager to join in the festivities for the National Camporee celebrating the Girl Scouts' 100th Anniversary. Although they are staying with Mimi, Christina's mystery-writing grandmother, Christina reassures the girls that on this trip, there will be no funny business and no mysteries.

But as they begin exploring the historic city, they discover that someone is leaving creepy clues that lead them to River Street, a spooky cemetery, on a ghost tour, and even to Juliette Gordon Low's home. Soon, they find themselves in the middle of a real mystery that is going to need all the Scouting skills they have, as well as their friendship, to work out! With just a few days until the Camporee begins, the girls put their skills into action to solve a mystery filled with giggles, goose bumps and “s'more!”

This book also includes lots of EXTRA (Girl Scout!) STUFF to do:
· Create a mystery-writing patch!
· Read about Juliette Gordon Low and other famous scouts in history!
· Learn the lingo with a glossary of Girl Scout terms!

Like all of Carole Marsh's Mysteries, this mystery incorporates history, geography, culture and cliffhanger chapters that will keep kids begging for more! This mystery includes SAT words, educational facts, fun and humor. The Giggling Girl Scout Mystery also includes a built-in book club that includes Talk About It, Bring It To Life, a Scavenger Hunt and a Girl Scout Glossary.

Review:

Friendship and practical skills are major components of the Girl Scouts, and these four young ladies have to use both. "The Giggling Ghost Girl Scout Mystery" is a read for young ladies themselves as they go to Savannah, Georgia for a big Camporee, but find a mystery within a nearby famous birthplace. Four daring girls armed with their scouting skills and friendship vow to get to the bottom of it before the Camporee is over. "The Giggling Ghost Girl Scout Mystery" is a very much recommended pick for those readers who are stepping away from picturebooks and are easing into novel-styled tales." (Children's Bookwatch August 2012 Midwest Book Review 2012-08-06)

The glamor and glitz of girl scouting will entice young readers into this mystery set in Savannah, Georgia...A story that shows the adventurous possibilities of scouting for girls in an utterly safe and entirely “girly” environment that will almost certainly lead moms who were scouts to reminisce aloud and locate―or start―troops for their own daughters. (ForeWord Review 2012-08-24)

The book club activities, scavenger hunt, and the famous Girl Scouts sections were added bonuses! (Learning Magazine's Teacher's Choice Award Review 2013-02-01)

My niece, who is 10, read the whole book in one day! (Learning Magazine's Teacher's Choice Award Review 2013-02-01)

[The Girl Scout Mystery] teaches children to read and infer and draw conclusions as they try to solve the mystery! (Learning Magazine's Teacher's Choice Award Review 2013-02-01)
