Read full description of the books:
This book is one of the many stories about Cam Jansen. She is a young girl known for her amazing photographic memory. In many cases, Cam uses her skill to help solve mysteries for her friends. At Eric's father's graduation, Cam uses her photographic memory to track down a missing gift.
The gift was from Eric's grandfather and was suppose to be a surprise. It was a watch that his father had once passed down to him on his graduation day and he extended to keep the tradition alive.
The mystery begun when the ceremony came to an end. Unlike many families around them, Eric's family decided to wait for the new graduate until the crowd faded. This however became a problem when they realized somebody had switched Eric's grandfather's bag. When they went to leave they found a bag similar to the one with the watch, but instead it contained toy trains.
Using Cam's photographic memory she began to review what she had seen that day. Luckily, she had remembered that there was a little boy sitting behind the family at the graduation. She knew this was a clue and soon also remembered they had stood up to cheer for a girl named Margery.
Providing enough clues to track down the family with the missing bag, Cam had solved another mystery! Not only was the little boy excited to see his trains, but she aided in keeping the watch tradition alive.
I would recommend this book to grades 1st-3rd. A mystery is always a safe bet for children in elementary. They can imagine putting themselves in the place of Cam and saving the day. This book builds confidence in readers, because it helps them take note on what they could do in a similar situation. They learn two things: always keep an eye on their things and be observant of the world around them.
An activity I would plan to go along with this book is a character list. There are many different characters in this book and it would be a great opportunity to learn about organization. As students become higher level readers it is important to keep each role separate. Offering an activity where they can list out on a piece paper what each character does and how it relates to the story builds a foundation for better reading comprehension.

Read information about the authorAdler was born in New York City, New York. He graduated from Queens College in 1968 with a bachelor's degree in economics and education. For the next nine years, he worked as a mathematics teacher for the New York City Board of Education, while taking classes towards a master's degree in marketing, a degree he was awarded by New York University in 1971. In that same year, a question from his then-three-year-old nephew inspired Adler to write his first story, A Little at a Time, subsequently published by Random House in 1976. Adler's next project, a series of math books, drew on his experience as a math teacher. In 1977, he created his most famous character, Cam Jansen, originally featured in Cam Jansen and the Mystery of the Stolen Diamonds, which was published that year.
Adler married psychologist Renee Hamada in 1973, and their first child, Michael, was born in 1977. By that time Adler had taken a break from teaching and, while his wife continued her work, he stayed home, took care of Michael, and began a full-time writing career.
Adler's son, Michael S. Adler, is now the co-author of several books with his father, including A Picture Book of Sam Adams, A Picture Book of John Hancock, and A Picture Book of James and Dolly Madison. Another son, Edward, was the inspiration for Adler's Andy Russell series, with the events described in the series loosely based on adventures the Adler family had with Edward's enthusiasm and his pets.
As of November 2008, Adler has three sons and two grandsons. He lives in Woodmere, New York.
