I used Reading Detective for the first time last year for my 3rd & 5th graders. It has been the BEST comprehension material we've used to date. I love how it makes them support their answer so they can't just guess to get the assignment done.

This is an excellent book for students to learn how to find and support their answers. It is written is a very "independent style". It could be used for station work as well as class example. I believe it will my students in all subjects to understand how to support their answers as well as how to write supporting details in their creative writing. It also identifies characterization, cause and effect, and motivation. I am excited to use this book.

My son & I love this. He is a great reader, but now he's learning how to back up his statements. It also helps me to understand his line of thinking. Reading Detective makes the student really think about and understand what he or she is reading. I use this as a fill-in between novels.
