The Mystery at Jamestown: First Permanent English Colony in America! by Carole Marsh is part of America's National Mystery Book Series. It uses the names of real kids and real places. There are internet connections that allow children to do some activities.
History is taught in a manner that is suitable for young children. They learn about the places the children visit and follow them while they solve a mystery. In this came the children follow clues and are looking for the person who stole some bones in order to clear their friends father of the theft.
I liked the way the mystery is presented and enjoyed learning more about American History in the process.
