This book was purchased for my two sons ages 9 and 11. They both really enjoyed this book. They would not put it down unless they had to, I am just happy they are reading something. They are completing the series. My 11 yr old says, "It is a really good book with a lot of detail and action".

You really need to check these books out if you have a child between the ages of 9 and 14. My daughter just started to read them and loves them. Plus the online activities associated with these books are fantastic, we play them together and have a blast. A must read.

This is a great book BUT not for little ones. I did not realze that the recommended age range is 9-11 years - quite old. My son is four and he does like this book but it is just a bit over his head. He doesn't mind me reading it to him but he would rather hear a book more to his age range. he hasn't asked to hear the story since the first time I read it. This one will probably be better for him in a few years.

Sharon Creech has a good way with words. This book proved to be especially poignant to the boys I work with, most of whom have been adopted or are awaiting adoption. The story begins with brother and sister who are residents of yet another foster home, and in fact not a very nice one. They have dreams of somehow earning enough money to steal away some night and hop the train to anywhere. Instead they are paired on a temporary basis with a couple who is growing older and husband and wife each has an idea of the perfect big trip. But their ideas are different so they need travelling companions to travel separartely with them. The story has concepts of trust, mystery, adventure, and takes the reader on a journey that ends with more questions than answers but still an overall sense of caring and accomplishment. And it does have a sense of satisfying and caring completion. The chapters are very short so it will keep those who are not excited about reading moving ahead at a quicker pace than many other books. The boys I work with (ages 9-12) all loved the book as well as others by Ms. Creech. It works well as either a read aloud or read alone book and would make a nice gift for any preteen, especially if they are in a foster or adoptive home.

I've read the first 6 in the series. I love every one and I'm a mom of four. My two older boys, ages 9 and 11, really enjoyed the adventure and surprises throughout the books, especially since it's about kids. Great read for anyone ready for an action packed mystery adventure.

Mary Pope Osborne is a fascinating author. Her books are captivating and can keep kids attention. We enjoyed books 1 - 9 on a 4 day road trip and it was a pleasure to listen to them and discuss the story with our kids (ages 3.5 & 5.5) We've listened to these books over and over and we're all still enteratined!

MY 2 SONS (8 AND 12) REALLY ENJOY THIS BOOK THEY ALREADY READ THE SECOND ONE, AND THEY TALK ABOUT IT FOR WEEKS, THEY ALSO RECOMENDED TO SOME FRIENDS AND THEY START READING THEM AND AS THEM ENJOY THEM. IF YOUR KID IS AROUND THE AGE OF MINE AND THEY DONT LIKE TO READ SO MUCH THIS COULD BE A GOOD START, TO CREATE IN THEM THE INTEREST IN READING

It all depends on reading ability of course, but I bought this book for my 9-year-old and she really likes it. We are reading it together, which I didn't expect, because there are many "challenge" words in it. The main character, a mouse, explains (and eats) words from a dictionary. Many are well beyond the 4th grade level.I like that it is interesting to my daughter yet really challenges her to expand her vocabulary. I doubt many children around her age would read it eagerly if there isn't an adult nearby to help navigate the difficult words.

I purchased these Audio CD's to help keep my Grandaughter interest in books. She struggles with reading and is behind for her age. She started out with the CD's and followed along with the books that we had purchased seperately. She played them over and over again. She just loves the stories. Before long I heard her reading the book on her own. I thought it was just from memory, but was quickly surprised that she was reading the whole book . These are all great stories read by the Author of the Books and keep kids very engaged! Since receiving these Audio CD's her reading level has jumped to steps or levels in school. I have already purchased 9-16 of the Audio CD's. Anything that helps children to love reading is a great tool. We have listened to them on short trips and the stories are easy to understand and fun to listen to. They also help you feel like you are part of the story and helping out Jack and Annie to solve the Mystery Adventures!

The list of hot toys for tweens is different every year because kids ages 10 to 12 are quick to embrace new fads and the latest trends. Regardless of the year, however, the basic criteria will never change. Toys and hobbies for this age group must always be creative, cutting-edge, and fun. Toys that let pre-teens express themselves and show their interests are sure to be a hit.
Obviously, having the right soccer ball is pretty important if you want to play a competitive soccer game. Once you've gotten your soccer cleats, soccer jerseys, soccer socks and other soccer gear ready to go, you aren't going to get very far without a soccer ball. There are three basic sizes of soccer balls. Players who are 5 to 8 years old play with a size three soccer ball. Youth soccer, ages 4 to 12, play with a size four, and anyone 13 and over plays with a size five. After that, soccer balls come in a variety of different materials and panel designs. A soccer ball has three basic pieces: the cover, the lining and the bladder. Each affects the "feel" and "control" of the ball.
FAQs about Pre-Owned Rolex Watches | Overstock.comFAQs about Pre-Owned Rolex Watchesby Shawna Edwards I've never made a large purchase online. Why pick Overstock.com?Overstock.com is one of the largest retailers of high-end jewelry and watches. We have taken the time to create a Web environment that caters to our customers by allowing them to comfortably shop for wristwatches from the privacy of their homes. We offer our customers a wide variety of timepieces at the most competitive prices available. In addition to this, we want them to feel secure purchasing from us. Overstock.com is one of a handful of online high-end watch merchants that are capable of processing your credit card for your entire purchase. This allows "first-time buyers" to feel more secure in making a large purchase because they have an added layer of security via their credit card company. Do all your Rolex watches come with their serial numbers?Every Rolex watch sold by Overstock.com will have its unique Rolex serial and reference numbers in place and viewable by removing the watch band from the six o'clock and twelve o'clock ends. What is meant by "Perfect Like New Condition?""Perfect like new (day one) condition" watches are pre-owned Rolex timepieces that are purchased by Overstock.com in pristine, mint and immaculate condition. This obviously is the case cosmetically and mechanically. Every timepiece is thoroughly inspected to ensure that they are authentic and meet our quality standards. These luxury watches are so pristine that, in most cases, they are indistinguishable from new watches. Our men's watches and women's watches may have miniscule markings, and the watch bracelets will have miniscule amounts of stretch. Will my watch come with documentation?Every watch will come with detailed documentation stating a full watch description, serial number and model number. Being that the manufacturer's warranty has expired, you will receive a limited one-year warranty from our vendor. Will my watch be covered by a warranty, and what about post warranty service?Being that the manufacturer's warranties on these timepieces have expired, our vendor issues a one-year limited warranty on every watch. The warranty work is done by expert watchmakers who use only original manufacturers' parts and have decades of experience working with Rolex watches. After the one-year limited warranty has expired, you may continue to request service through our vendor who will service the watch when needed at industry cost prices. How can I be sure that the watch will fit my wrist?All our watches will fit up to a 6-and-a-half-inch wrist for a woman and for a man will fit up to a 7-and-a-half-inch wrist (extra links are available for additional charges). Rolex watches can be easily resized to fit any wrist by your local jeweler. How do I measure for my wrist size?You can get an approximate measurement of your wrist by using a soft measuring tape or measuring the inside of your best fitting watch. If you don't have a soft measuring tape, you can wrap a ribbon or a piece of string around your wrist at the wrist bone, mark the spot where it meets, and measure it against a ruler to determine your approximate wrist size. To get the best fit, measure fairly snug at the wrist bone. This is approximate sizing not a 100 percent guarantee of prefect sizing.If the watch is a gift and you do not know the recipient's wrist size, you can use the following as a guide (as with all products, the standard sizes depend on the manufacturer):Men's Standard Bracelet SizesInside, including watch face while bracelet is closedAdult Small5-1/2" to 6-1/2"Adult Average6-1/2" to 7-1/2"Adult Large7-1/2" to 8-1/2"Adult X-Large8-1/2" to 9-1/2" Women's Standard Bracelet SizesInside, including watch face while bracelet is closedAdult Small4-1/2" to 5-1/2"Adult Average5-1/2" to 6-1/2"Adult Large6-1/2" to 7-1/2"Adult X-Large7-1/2" to 8-1/2" Will the watch be fully water-resistant? And can I go swimming or shower with my watch?Every Rolex watch is fully tested for water resistance; the total depth rating is listed with every model. Drawing on years of experience, it is our recommendation that, though Rolex watches are water resistant, because of the fine nature of the timepiece, we discourage our customers from making a practice of taking them in the shower or pool. If for some reason the stem, which is the round mechanism found on the side of the case, which is unscrewed to set the time, is not completely screwed down, water could leak into the movement and damage the watch. (Please refer to your warranty card regarding water damage.) The chances are incredibly slim that this will happen, but nonetheless it is our recommendation that our customers refrain from taking their Rolex watches into the water to avoid any unnecessary problems. How does Overstock.com offer such great prices when my local jeweler has a similar piece for considerably more?Overstock.com has built the best connections in the business, affording us the ability to buy from dealers at the highest level of the industry. Through these connections we can buy in the largest quantities while getting the best pricing. Being that we are not an authorized dealer of Rolex or affiliated with Rolex, USA we are able to offer our customers rock bottom pricing without being subject to any manufacturer's price controls or policies. Do I need to be present to sign for the package?For your safety, you will need to sign for the package that contains your watch. If you are not present when it arrives, the package will not be left at your door. A door tag will be left to inform you when the courier will come to redeliver your package. Alternatively, you can call the courier to arrange a better delivery time or pick-up (with photo identification) at the local hub. What is the benefit of buying a pre-owned Rolex over a new one?Unlike new Rolex watches, pre-owned Rolex watches do not depreciate in value immediately after purchase. Therefore, buying a new Rolex watch is like buying a brand new car: The moment you drive it off the lot it has lost 20 to 30 percent of its value. With buying a pre-owned watch, you have effectively cut out any value depreciation and retail markup. Rolex watches hold their value over time; in most cases, a pre-owned Rolex can be resold at a price very close to your purchase price.Rolex designs don't change too often; therefore, owning a perfect condition pre-owned timepiece is as good as a new one, with no one knowing that the watch was purchased pre-owned. No one can spot a used Rolex on your wrist. With the proper care and maintenance, a Rolex lasts forever. How do I determine the age of my watch?You are guaranteed to receive a desirable modern watch with a fully automatic self-winding (or quartz movement depending on your purchase), with quickset date feature. Due to the fact that Rolex models are manufactured for a number of years, the year of your watch will be circa 1980s or 1990s. Every Rolex watch sold by Overstock.com will have its unique Rolex serial number, which determines the year of manufacture. Overstock.com and our Rolex Vendors are not affiliated with Rolex or Rolex, USA Inc., and are not an authorized Rolex dealer. Third party One-Year Warranty.
