In This Program, Kids Build Vital

Common-Core Mandated Skills...

While Having a Grand Adventure!



Schools and Libraries love this program because every child builds research skills   -  without even knowing it!   



  • No Preparation is Required of our hosts:  All materials and preparation are provided by and set up by our program facilitator, Mom’s Choice Award Winner Jason Edwards – the Monster Detective!


  • The KIDS are the stars of the Show:  It is the participants, not the adults, whose observation, decoding, and deduction skills uncover the clues that lead to the monster’s lair.


  • Everyone is Constantly engaged:  Every clue tells which book must be located in order to obtain the next clue.  Participants work in teams of 3 or 4 and all group members perform every task – including Reading Clues, Decoding Secret Messages, Searching the Catalog, and Locating Books on the shelves. 


  • Everyone always succeeds:  Every team has its own set of clues to find – there is never any competing over clues and all participants proceed at their own pace.  And every team succeeds in finding books in the fiction, non-fiction, and biography sections of the library all by themselves! 


  • KIDS learn by doing:   The kids do it all on their own!  When needed, the ‘detective’ helps facilitate decoding, use of the library catalog, etc. in the search for the books that contain the hidden clues.


  • Everyone works together:  In the end, the teams are called together to share the information on their clues so that they can track down and capture the monster.  Then they all are  sworn in as newly appointed deputy detectives and rewarded with their own Monster Detective badges!
