If your children are looking for a book of fun, adventure, and with colorful illustrations, get a copy of Sunken Treasure Hunt - Singapore: Keiko and Kenzo Travel Adventure Series by Sumita Mukherjee. Join siblings Keiko and Kenzo, and their dad, Mr. Kimura, their pet squirrel, Eji, and their cousin, Kiara, as they embark on a treasure hunt. Much fun will be had by all as your child goes on an adventure with them by hunting and looking for clues to discover the hidden treasure in the South China Sea. The family secret was that Kiara’s Grandfather Chan told of hidden treasures that were never discovered and were possibly at the bottom of the sea. In this book discover the clues, maps and the invisible note that hold the secrets to the treasures that everyone is after.

I enjoyed reading this educational children's book because it offered so much for the young reader. I was fascinated that it was distributed by the Young Scientists Reader which explained the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) elements of the story. There is a vast wealth of knowledge and information that children will experience as they learn about China, the Singapore Flyer (the world’s tallest Ferris wheel), the Flybot (similar to a drone), transmitter, live feed, the Esplanade Theatre and much more. The book gave a timeline of the steps that the team took to accomplish their goals. All of these factors will help your child to learn the importance of STEM, learning about new things, and an effective way to map out their plan of action. What a great book to add to your child's library.
