My children love to read. I am always looking for great books that they might enjoy. I also love books that teach great morals. I was recently introduced to Robin Caroll's book Samantha Sanderson Off the Record. This is the third book in this series. This is an early novel geared towards children. My 8 year old was excited to dig in to this book. She did need a little assistance reading it, but I enjoyed reading it with her. This is a book about a girl, so my daughter instantly connected. This book is a great way to teach your child how to make good choices, but it does it in a fun way. The message in this book is a good one. I think that children need good role models, and need examples of how to deal with handling difficult situations where hard decisions need to be made.
The main character in this book is Samantha Sanderson. She is a strong girl. She is also a cheerleader. She wants to be a journalist when she grows up. Her mother is a journalist. She enjoys writing papers for her school paper. Her dad is a police officer. She is always writing. She encounters a problem that is difficult to deal with. This is something so many children can relate to. School grades have been messed with. The issue is that the person behind the grades being messed with is her friend. Samantha needs to decide what she is going to do about the situation.
