The Lost Key at Peck’s Cove

by Amanda Parris

Great book for primary grade children!

March 4, 2022

This was a wonderful book for children. Amanda Parris did a great job of combining a mystery with facts about some unusual animals. As a former teacher, I think students in 1st and 2nd grades would love reading this book. As a grandmother of young children, I know my grandchildren would love it!

Cute mystery

Both of my kids love this story. It is a great little mystery to for them to think about what might for happened to the key. It has some good challenges words and topics that were new to my kids since we don’t live near a coast. Plus it has an otter and any book that has otters is gold in our house!


Fun for all your ages

This book had my boys (5&7) asking deep questions. I loved it so much for that reason! They enjoyed the colorful pictures and message as well as my first grader was able to read it to us. A wonderful pick!


Nice Book

I liked it because they solved a problem and splashed in the creek at Peck’s Cove. It was a little hard and a little easy to read.

Family working together throughout.

I didn’t expect to like this one as much as I did. I thought it had a good storyline for an entry level book, it included my favorite animal (otter), and had the family working together throughout. I liked what the dad decided in the end. Nice illustrations.
