Skeleton Creek Activities
The Skeleton Creek series of children's mystery novels by
Patrick Carman. Intended for ages 12+ this novel is an
interesting combination of journal style writing and an online
video diary working together to tell the story.
Kaitlyn read the stories and loved the spooky on-line videos
combined with the journal-type story telling. I think this
is a wonderfully unique new type of storytelling for today's
"plugged in" kids!
Just as an fyi, there was about half an hour of reading for
every one minute of video for her (she reads fairly quickly) --
I was a little worried when she started the series that the
"video portion" of it would overwhelm the good old fashioned
book reading... Thankfully, that wasn't the case at all!
And here are some related activities from our sites that you may enjoy doing while reading the Skeleton Creek novels!
