Engaging chapter book about Precious, little girl from Botswana, who wants to be a detective and helps clear a classmate when he is accused of stealing food. I would recommend this book to students interested in a realistic story with a kind, smart main character who lives in a different cultural environment. ( )

I do not often read YA or children's books, but made an exception for this glance at a young Precious Ramotswe. I was not disappointed. ( )

I would peg this at 7-9 yr olds, and if reading aloud, 5-8 yr olds.

Very sweet mystery for Precious Ramotswe. Her first as a young child. Something that kids can relate to as well as something that all of McCall Smith books do: teach a simple lesson. Only an hour as an audio book. I would like to see the actual book, as I hear there are some lovely drawings to go with it. I might pick this up for the middle niece for xmas. Or the nephs when they hit about 6. ( )
