Detective work. (new products).
The new Web site, Enlighten Me: Read, Learn and Explore, was created to stimulate intellectual exploration among children and provide educators and parents with educational resources that promote reading and creative learning.
The heart of Enlighten Me is the SuperThinkers page. Here students have access to the Peetnik Mysteries, which are stories set in a fictional community where a 12-year-old amateur detective runs the Problem Solvers Agency.
Children use real-life information gathering tools, such as the Yellow and White Pages, to familiarize themselves with the community's geography, businesses and residents and to solve the mysteries. Additional mysteries and content will be frequently added.
