Most writers have children. If you are a crime/mystery writer, you might want to share what you do with your appropriately-aged kids. It never hurts to have more understanding between parents and children. And all parents should encourage their children to read.
Following is a list from my local library of CSI books for kids.
Crime Scene by Vivien Bowers
Forensic Science by Ron Fridell
Bones Never Lie: How Forensics Helps Solve History’s Mysteries by Elizabeth MacLeod
Crime Scene Science Projects by Elizabeth Harris
Dusted and Busted!: The Science of Fingerprinting by D. B. Beres
Fingerprints: Crime Solving Science Experiments by Kenneth G. Rainis
Hair, Clothing and Tire Track Evidence by Kenneth G. Rainis
Blood and DNA Evidence by Kenneth G. Rainis
Forgery: Crime Solving Experiments by Brian Lane
Crime and Detection by Brian Lane
Gut-eating Bugs: Maggots Reveal the Time of Death by Danielle Denega
The Human Body: Investigating an Unexplained Death by Andrew Solway
Forensics: Uncover the Science and Technology of Crime Scene Investigation by Carla Mooney
These books sound exciting. The ones on science experiments should appeal to both you and your children. What parent isn’t looking to guide their child for the annual Science Project at school?
