Christian Mystery Books for Kids

Are you looking to help your children get some more reading in this winter?

You might want to pull them away from from the TV and video games and give them a good book to cozy up with instead.

I remember growing up and how I just loved reading a good mystery book!  Back then I had read all the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boy books I could find--and when I read the entire collection, I would start all over again. Such great memories of my childhood. You better believe that when my children learned to read those were some of the first mystery books I introduced them to!

And today I wanted to share some special mystery books with you. These have a Christian worldview so are safe for you children and they will even learn to grow in faith and some of the books even teach some Bible history along the way.

Pinned. My kids are 'too old' for these (at least my 'boys' - 22 and 20). But my daughter may enjoy the Nancy Drew series and several of the others. And then there's always grandchildren ... YEARS from now, when I'm old enough! LOL

We loved all five scripture sleuth books and the sugar creeck gang! The DVD of 5 sugar Creek gang shows is great for kids 10+ and follows the book fairly well, too.

WE read the Nancy Drew series and loved them. Read a few of the newer ones they were good but not as good as the original ones. The whole Mandie collection is in our library. Nice read. The Bobbsey twins and Honey Bunch series are great reads too. Judy Bolton and Beverly Gray series are nice too. The Christy and Sierra series by Robin Gunn are christian reads for older children. Thank You for the list. Some of the titles are unfamiliar but worth looking into.
