What to Read Link Up: Detective Books for Kids

Fun for Kid Detectives

My youngest son LOVES to play detective. He’s a Sherlock Holmes fan, and he enjoys trying to solve mysteries on his own. We searched high and low for a trench coat and detective hat, and lucked out with a nice coat from the thrift store and a Sherlock Holmes style hat from the dime store. With the addition of a mustache and Spy glasses (with secret rearview mirrors), he is ready to take on any case that presents itself. Check out our Activities for Kid Detectives to find some fun things for kid detectives to do.

We’re sharing our list of favorite kids’ books about detectives below, but if you have any to add to our selections, please let us know in the comments. We are always on the lookout for new books to read. While you’re here, be sure to add your links to our family-friendly linkup so we can see what you’re up to as well.

Happy sleuthing!

    We’re just starting the 39 clues together. For some reason my boys do not find detective/ mystery books nearly as exciting and intriguing as I do but I’m hoping to change their minds.

      Oh, I forgot about the 39 Clues. My oldest son read them several years ago, and I’ll bet my youngest would like them. Our library even held a series of 39 Clues scavenger hunts. Thanks so much!
