Hilde Cracks the Case: Hero Dog! Giveaway


I have been compensated for this post, all opinions are my own. 

School is finally in full swing here in Minnesota. It seems to me that Minnesota starts school much later than many others across the nation, with sessions not beginning until after Labor Day. Regardless, my boys and I have nightly conversations that circle around math, history, and reading requirements. Each of my fellas has his own level of required reading. Keeping them engaged and excited about reading can occasionally be an issue, but based upon my experience it’s all about finding the right fit. 

Scholastic has just released a new chapter book series to potentially intrigue your little reader. Check out all the details below on this new fun line of books for kids in stores now! 


Scholastic’s early chapter book line Branches is aimed at newly independent readers. With easy-to-read text, high-interest content, fast-paced plots, and illustrations on every page, these books will boost reading confidence and stamina. Branches books help readers grow!


“Hilde Cracks the Case” Series

Real-life super-sleuth and media sensation Hilde Lysiak’s reporting skills are put to the test in this fun early chapter book mystery series! Ten-year old crime reporter Hilde Lysiak is starring in her very own early chapter book series — inspired by news stories Hilde wrote in real life! Joanne Lew-Vriethoff’s personality-filled illustrations appear on every page, bringing Hilde’s adventures to life for young readers!

Book #1: Hero Dog
