Great book for kids

The Girl's Ghost Hunting Guide by Stacey Graham isn't what I thought it would be. I thought it would be cute stories and tricks that would be shared during a slumber party, or the like. I didn't realize until I started reading it that it is an actual ghost hunting guide. If you're familiar with the television show, Ghost Hunters, you know exactly what I'm talking about. I was pleasantly surprised by this book.
The first thing I want to do is give Stacy Graham a high-five for pointing out and emphasizing safety. As a parent, I really appreciated it. Graham makes several points such as, don't investigate alone, ask advice from an adult, and use common sense. This book is a great guide to children who want to investigate the paranormal. This book includes interviews from actual paranormal investigators, ghost stories, quizzes, and more information. The Girl's Ghost Hunting Guide gives you step by step instructions and tips for ghost hunting.
If you know a kid who's interested in this field, I would suggest this book. It's definitely a 'To Read'

This would have been one of the books I bought at the book fairs
This would have been one of the books I bought at the book fairs. When I was little, I used to love reading R.L . Stine Goosebumps as well the Kathrine Applegate Animorphs, those were my favorite. Come to think of it, even now I still read those types of stories. LOL!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
This book has great insider information. There's information on what to do on a haunting. Like what to bring, (camera, flashlight, etc), what to look for, where you should go. It fun's and easy to read. There is also information of what to do after your investigation. Like what to look for in your photos, what to listen for in your voice recorder, etc. It address safety issues as well. No trespassing, get parents permission, etc.
My fave part of the book is after every chapter there are some short urban legends. Those I devoured cause I love that stuff. It reminds me of Are you Afraid of the Dark? Does anyone remember that show? Love it!
At the end of the book, there are some blank pages to log in your own investigations to get started with. Super cool!
The Girls Ghost Hunting Guide is a splendid, well put together guide for that ghost lover. Easy information broken down into parts so that no one gets confused. Be sure to include your friends and become your own team of ghost hunters!
