Last year, I reviewed the excellent Word Detective, 130 Games and Puzzles
to Improve Spelling for 2nd graders.
Today, I present the same book concept, by the same author and illustrators, but for Grade 3.

To help enhance the young students’ vocabulary, the author has put together a list of 200 spelling words, through 130 engaging games and puzzles, all organized around a mystery to solve. The mystery is set in the city: there’s a soccer game, but the mascot has disappeared!
