March Mystery Challenge!
All Northwood students are invited to read a mystery in the month of March, fill out a case file, and win a mystery prize! Interested students should pick up a case file in Room 135 or at the library front desk.
Below are some recommendations for mysteries at different grade levels. All children are different, so these are just general guidelines and should be followed with parent discretion. Also, these books are just a few of the many wonderful mysteries out there--ask a librarian for some more ideas!
