    When Cam Jansen and her best friend Eric visit the local museum on a class field trip, the fifth-grade sleuth with a photographic memory realizes that there are three bones missing from the Coelophysis skeleton. Although she attempts to notify the museum guide, her concern is brushed aside. Cam and Eric return to the museum after school, but their attempt to hide in the display room, to see what is going on, is foiled. Will they manage to discover where the missing dinosaur bones have gone? The t When Cam Jansen and her best friend Eric visit the local museum on a class field trip, the fifth-grade sleuth with a photographic memory realizes that there are three bones missing from the Coelophysis skeleton. Although she attempts to notify the museum guide, her concern is brushed aside. Cam and Eric return to the museum after school, but their attempt to hide in the display room, to see what is going on, is foiled. Will they manage to discover where the missing dinosaur bones have gone? The third entry in David A. Adler's beginning chapter-book series about Cam and her mysterious adventures, Cam Jansen and the Mystery of the Dinosaur Bones was first published in 1980, and is a book that I recall reading as a girl, along with its companions. Some of the information is dated, particularly the description of the Brachiosaurus as the biggest dinosaur. This may have been true at that time of publication, but more current research and discovery would indicate that the Titanosaur or Agentinosaur can claim that honor. There is also a dated feeling when it comes to the freedom Cam and Eric have, to bicycle all around town on their own, without notifying their parents. Leaving these issues aside, this is an engaging, fairly non-threatening mystery for beginning chapter-book readers, particularly those who love dinosaurs.

    The original Cam Jansen series follows the exploits of 10-year-old 5th grader Jennifer "the Camera" (aka "Cam") Jansen and her best friend, classmate, and neighbor Eric Shelton.

Cam got her nickname because of her photographic memory. All she has to do is say "Click," and Cam can remember everything she's seen, which comes in pretty handy when trying to solve mysteries. David Adler has written several beginning chapter book series, but Cam Jansen is one of the earliest and most successful. He's been writing the series since 1980 and now writes roughly one volume per year. He has also started a Young Cam Jansen series of even simpler chapter books. Reading level wise, I'd say children they'd interest children from kindergarden through fifth grade who are just starting to read chapter books. I didn't read any of the the young Cam Jansen books, but it looks like they're more limited in scope and probably would be considered "baby books" to anyone beyond 2nd grade. Because the books are so short, I read essentially the first half of the series and the 25th anniversary special "The Valentine Day Baby Mystery" where Cam's mom has twins, ending Cam's only child status, and Eric's mom has her car stolen, only to be returned when Cam's quick thinking discovers the thief. Overall I was surprised at how engaging these stories were. I would totally recommend them to children just starting to read chapter books. The print is big and there are still several black and white drawings scattered throughout the text, making them an easy transition from picture books. Plus, they're well-written enough that I think they can nudge children to move on to better quality titles as they move on to longer chapter books. Of course they're not perfect, though. It seems that adults Cam and Eric interact with choose to not accept Cam's photographic memory only when it's necessary to create tension in the story. Otherwise most adults take for granted that this 10-year-old can solve diamond thefts and bank robberies. Still, it has to be empowering for kids to read about someone close to their age solving mysteries like that. I was also kind of bothered by the way Cam always ends up being right. Sometimes she comes off as a little too cocky and unwilling to listen to others. In nearly every story Eric plays the wet blanket suggesting that they tell an adult what they've discovered rather than trying to catch the bad guy on their own. However Cam always forges ahead and ends up getting her suspect. Again, I'm sure kids love the feeling of accomplishment, but sometimes it feels like Cam's walking the fine line between extreme confidence and recklessness, as in the Chocolate Fudge Mystery where she trespasses into someone's back yard just because she thinks it's weird that no one's home. Her dad and Eric both tell her she shouldn't be doing this, but Cam doesn't care because she's certain there's a mystery to be solved. She turns out be right (there's a bank robber hiding in the house) and her disregard for strangers' privacy is forgotten. And honestly, that's the problem I had with these books when I was little. While it was cool to read about a kid doing cool stuff like solving robberies, I could always tell that the stories weren't quite true to real life. I guess that's why I always preferred stories of kids doing amazing things that were based off real stories like Island of the Blue Dolphins or at least seemed more realistic. My husband, however, loved these books as a kid and said he read every one he could get his hands on when he was younger, so I guess that's at least some proof of their appeal to both sexes. Both libraries I checked these books out from had multiple copies of the titles in this series and even then I had trouble finding all the titles actually on the shelf, so they continue to be popular titles. I think they would be great additions to a school or public library collection.

Ages 8-12 Cam Jansen's real first name is Jennifer, but her friends call her Cam because of her photographic memory. When she takes a mental picture, she says "click". In this story, part of a large series of mysteries, Cam and her friend Eric are touring a natural history museum. Cam remembers that one of the dinosaurs had more bones in its tail the last time she visited. The tour guide denies this, and seems hostile to her inquiries. Just as they leave the museum, Cam and Eric notice a mysterious milk truck picking up a carton outside the museum. Cam remembers that the brand of milk in the museum cafeteria is different. She and Eric set out on a dangerous mission to solve the mystery on their bicycles. It doesn't really matter that the situation is unlikely. This book would be an entertaining read for new chapter book readers. With a similar feel to easy readers, but slightly denser text and smaller font, the book contains black and white pictures every 2-5 pages or so. Nothing violent happens, so the story would be suitable for readers 6 and up. Because this book was originally published in 1981 and it is part of a large series, it was difficult to find online reviews of this book in electronic databases. Amazon.com quotes reviews from Booklist and School Library Journal, but it is unclear whether they refer to this specific book. The quote from School Library Journal praised the clever plot and heroine, and said the book was a "zestful mystery". The Booklist quote was less helpful, and merely praised the heroine. Amazon's publisher review helpfully mentions that this book is suitable for readers who are transitioning to chapter books.

I read this book with my third grade class during a Lucy Calkin's mystery unit of study and they loved it. This book makes a great mentor text as students learn what makes a great mystery plot. It would also work well as a mentor text to demonstrate character development and dialogue during writer workshop student conferences.

Still, mystery novels for kids were not a huge commodity back in the eighties (before the term “chapter books” had come about to describe this category of kidlit), and as with any vertical-market application, authors could get away with more, which is why when someone came out with a really good novel-length kidlit mystery, my whole school went nuts. (If you're old enough, remember how popular The Westing Game was when it appeared, for example?) Still, the plot is fun and the characters are as well, and if you don't mind your mystery elements predictable and simplistic, it's not bad. Just don't expect something as complex and engrossing as the average modern kidlit mystery. ***

    RATING: 4 STARS (Review Not on Blog) *Please Note that the following review is the general review on the Cam Jansen Mysteries * I loved this series as a kid. I believe I was about 6 to 8 when I read these books and it would be the beginning of my love of mysteries. Cam Jansen, about 10 years old, uses her photographic memory to solve mysteries. They remind me of Agatha Christie novels but for children beginning to read chapter books. I would call these one step above the easy readers.

    How to write a children's mystery series, lesson 3. 1) Don't be lazy and simply write, almost word for word, what you've already written. 2) Don't write about things a ten-year-old wouldn't do, like hide in a museum after the museum closes as most children would find that idea terrifying.. 3) And finally, do NOT have children ride bikes in the streets to follow a truck. So, rather, today's lesson is what NOT to do.

The tour guide stole the bones because she wanted to bury them and dig them up and pretend she found them. The tour guide wanted to be famous for finding the bones. I learned about dinosaurs. Maddie

    A very quick read, this book is meant for children transitioning to chapter books. I’d never read Cam Jansen before, but picked it up because we have a bit of a dinosaur obsession in our house right now. Cam has a photographic memory, and while on a class field trip to the museum, she realizes that three dinosaur bones are missing from the exhibit. Can she figure out where they went? Her best buddy Eric is at her side through the whole adventure!

    Because of her photographic memory, Cam realizes that a dinosaur exhibit is missing some bones. When no one at the museum believes her, she and Eric investigate on their own, putting the clues together and solving the crime. A bit of action and adventure, but also enough clues for a first or second grader to put together and solve it on their own. A lot of these need some technology descriptions for today's kids. They often have camcorders or film. This one has a phone booth.

    I think you should read this Cam Jansen book because Cam and Eric were in a mystery. If you like mysteries it is going to be cool👌. They are wondering who stole the bones🙀 .But first they are missing 1 bone missing and then the other day 3. You should read the book to find out what happened to the bones!

    Cam Jansen has a photographic memory. On a field trip to the museum she notices some dinosaur bones are missing. Cam and her friends solve the mystery. This is a great early-reader mystery book. The chapters are short enough to give beginning chapter book readers a sense of accomplishment. The book itself is short enough to not overwhelm students.

    I think you should read this book if you like mysteries. Cam and Eric tried to solve the mystery of who stole the three bones. Cam called the milk man's name and he did't answer. Cam thought it was strange. Read the book to find out who stole the bones.

    Part of the Cam Jansen series, this time some dinosaur bones go missing and Cam uses her photographic memory to help her solve the case. Very fun and interesting book that early readers would enjoy as a part of their first series. The language is fairly simple.

    Genre: Mystery Grade level 2nd-3rd Something unique about this book is how Cam has a photographic memory. I can see children trying this at home, or pretending they are Cam. It is a cute way to bring the story to life.

    My ten-year-old son read this book in one afternoon, but I was glad to see him find something to read that he finds interesting. He liked it well enough to ask for more. This is great, Cam Jansen is one of my favorite memories from my childhood.

    I really enjoyed reading this book! The main characters, Cam and Eric, are friends who seem to get involved with a lot of mysteries together. Cam's name is actually Jennifer but they call her Cam, short for 'The Camera". She got this nickname because she takes pictures of everything with her mental camera and says "click" as she is taking these mental pictures.

In this book, Cam and Eric go on a class field trip to the Kurt Daub Museum with their fifth grade class. They travel around the museum with a tour guide and look at dinosaur bones and lots of other cool things. Cam had been to this museum before and had looked at these dinosaur bones and taken mental pictures of them. As she was examining them on the field trip, she noticed that there were a few bones missing from one of the dinosaurs. She raised her hand and tried to tell the tour guide, but she didn't seem receptive to Cam's observation. Cam knew they were missing and she had to get to the bottom of this mystery. Cam and Eric knew that the bones had to have been taken when the museum was closed, otherwise someone would have seen it happen. She told Eric that they should stay after the museum closed to see if they could find out who was taking the bones. In the end, they finally figured out who was taking the dinosaur bones and they turned them in to the director of the museum. Cam and Eric saved the day! I would love to have the Cam Jansen series in my classroom library. I would use this book as an introduction to mysteries. We could also talk about science topics and dinosaur bones along with this book. If my class had the opportunity to go to a science museum on a field trip, it would be cool to read this book before going. It would be a great way to show the students the importance of being observant and looking at things closely in order to gain more knowledge. These are just a few examples, but there are a lot of great applications to use this book in the classroom.

    Woohoo! It's only January 1st and I've already read a book! Ok, I have to admit it's a chapter book and I've read it before (but not since 2nd grade). So, should it still count? Sure, why not?

I had long forgotten the title, but after a quick Google search, I found out it was the Fourth Floor Twins series. Anyone else remember this? - While I noticed some moments of lack of interest from my niece (perhaps due to age and/or short attention span), she wanted to continue reading to find out what happened next. - The illustrations from my old edition made Cam look more tomboyish. My niece saw the cover and thought Cam was the girl on the far left. Now, I want to compare the drawings between the older and most recent editions. - Growing up, I loved mysteries and looking back, children's mysteries (books and tv shows), for me, were a great way to learn critical thinking skills by making connections between the clues presented in the story. Re-reading this book brought back so many early memories I have associated with reading. I want to check out more from this series as well as other chapter books I can read with my niece. Any recommendations?

    I remember reading one of the Cam Jansen books when I was younger but I cannot put my finger on it. More than likely it was this one but again my memory won't place it. Anyway it is a basic and short read that will be great as a step-up book. There are a few words that may end up causing problems but with the dinosaur names at least there is a pronunciation guide for those who don't know them. Otherwise word-wise there shouldn't be much other problems.

Otherwise word-wise there shouldn't be much other problems. There isn't much of a plot or background to the story. Basically point A, point B and point C then The End. Since of the hurried plot you don't get much mystery to work with or even truly much of a motive. What really irritated me with this book was the characters. Cam is the annoying know-it-all that seems to bounce around. She has this amazing photographic memory and gets in trouble but not enough trouble that it really stops her from getting down what she needs to. Her best friend is the typical follow-along type who complains and doesn't want to but then still gets dragged in since he chooses to be loyal. Definitely a quick read for many....
