The Roberts family is off to Norris Lake for some summer fun. Every year, Mom creates a challenging scavenger hunt for the three children. It encourages young people to have fun at the lake while still working on different skills, like math and map reading. Zoe’s the youngest; she’s never won the scavenger hunt. Now that’s she’s in grade 3, she’s determined to win. But her older siblings are so much better at so many things. Can she really beat them at the annual Roberts’ Family Scavenger Hunt Fun?
Rinda Beach’s early chapter book, Zoe’s Scavenger Hunt Fun: A Lake Vacation Activity Book, takes the young reader on a journey to a summer cottage on Norris Lake. They follow young Zoe’s adventures as she improves her map-reading skills, becomes more observant of the natural life around her, tries different dives into the lake, and manages to swim deeper than her older siblings. As Zoe plows her way through her mother’s scavenger hunt questions, recording each answer as she completes the challenge, the plot thickens and the young reader will be cheering her on. At the end of the vacation, Dad tallies the points earned by each child. It’s a tense moment. Who wins? And will there be another challenge next year? At the end of the book, the author provides the young reader with the opportunity to record their own scavenger hunt, complete with challenging questions and activities. A great interactive learning tool – summer fun can be learning fun as well.
