Case Closed?: Nine Mysteries Unlocked by Modern ScienceCase Closed?: Nine Mysteries Unlocked by Modern Science by Susan Hughes

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! I got this book from the Author to review. With the holiday's it was put on the shelf, and I frequently caught my 7 and 8 year olds looking at it and reading it. Finally, I sat down and opened it up. Even though this is meant to be a children’s book, I was immediately fascinated! I love mysteries, and history. This book combines the both with a list of unsolved mysteries from the past. Susan Hughes takes the reader on an exciting adventure detailing historical mysteries in a way that is intriguing, but easy for children to understand. With colorful pictures, a glossary and explanations on the side for things which may be difficult for children to understand such as DNA, and certain technological equipment, we are told how Researchers, Archeologists, and Historians investigate these past mysteries with modern science. Some of which are Hatshepsut, The City of Ubar, Anastasia, and the Anasazi Indians. Are they all solved? Some are, but still leave questions behind.
