Jennifer, who is also known as Cam because of her photographic memory witnesses a robbery at a jewelry store in the mall. She keeps the image in her head of the people who left the jewelry store after the robbery. It was her photographic memory that helps the police find the people that were the thieves in the robbery.

Personal Reaction:
Growing up, I always thought that I had somewhat of a photographic memory because I learn things the way that I saw them on paper, so if I have to take a test and cannot remember the answer, I picture the study guide in my head and look for the answers. However having the ability to always have a photographic memory and using it help someone would be great.

Classroom Ideas:
1. Play a memory game with the children.
2. Have the children test to see how much of a photographic memory that they have.
3. Talk with children about the safe ways to behave if they were Cam.

This is cute but it's confusing for some younger children to read at times. ( )
