In VeggieTales I Can Read, Sheerluck Holmes and The Case of the Missing Friend children will learn the importance of always being kind to others. The Bible verse this book is based on is Proverbs 17:17 which states a friend loves at all times even when trouble comes. This is a great lesson to take to heart because sometimes that can be really hard to do even for adults. Often we may not intend on hurting someones feelings and in turn drive them away in a moment of disappointment but sometimes that happens. Stories such as this can help a child become more aware in not getting upset or to try to right that moment of wrong sooner before something upsetting or dangerous could happen. In this book a case is solved when something just as that did happen!
Bob and Larry are playing the roles of none other than Sherlock Holmes but in this case Larry is known as Sheerluck Holmes and Bob is Bobby Watson. They are residing in no other than London and have pipes in which they blow bubbles out of. A case is to be solved of a missing friend after a note was found that said feelings were hurt. It was dark and foggy out and the safety of this friend was questioned. I won’t give anything else away but the story was done well for the recommend ages of 4-8.
There are 32 pages in this paperback title. The illustrations fully cover the story on each page. My kids really liked the mystery and detective theme of the story. My 6 year old daughter was able to read this book on her own quite well. The book is on the beginning reading level which features short sentences, familiar words, and simple concepts that are easy for kids to comprehend on their own. She had no trouble at all with this book . We are are big Veggie Tale fans and were not at all disappointed! It’s good title to pick up if you are fans of the series or looking for you child to grasp that what we say or do can sometimes hurt the feelings of another and that we should always react in a loving way to whomever we meet. I would recommend this reader for both boys and girls!
