The Mess Dectives and The Case of the Lost Temper by Karen Poth

A Lesson in Self-Control
In this Level One VeggieTales I Can Read, The Mess Detectives and the Case of the Lost Temper, Bob and Larry have another important case … track down the Masked Door Slammer. But when the investigation doesn’t go the way Bob wants, and things go wrong, he begins to lose his temper.
Will a gentle reminder from Larry help Bob get his temper under control?


 The Mess Detectives and the Case of the Lost Temper is an I Can Read book by Karen Poth. This Level One book is around 32 pages and each page has around three to five lines on each page.  The story is the adventure of Bob and Larry as detectives who investigate the case of a door slammer.  The book follows Bob and Larry as they solve the problem of being annoyed with each other.

As a homeschool mom of seven and a former reading teacher I can say I have sat through hundreds of beginning reader books.  The story did not seem as contrived to me as other beginning reader books I have read over the years.  The story successfully solved a problem in a natural way with limited vocabulary and sentence length.  The pictures are delightful and engaging.  I can recommend this book for beginning readers.
