Fun But Stupid

The39clues.com is a fun website because you get to be a part of the story and can play fun games. The downside to this site is that it's so sad how in today's world, we feel like we have to attach the internet to a book. I feel like books should just be for reading and the internet should just be for the internet. This webstite tells you that you can win prizes but it's virtually impossible unless you spend your whole life playing a stupid game on the internet, trying to get a high score.

Meh...

It's a pretty fun website. Completely clean, but the games are a bore.

Great for the people who LOVE the books!

A great website that is fun to do, along with reading the books. I think this is good for kids 7 and up, IF they can do a good amount of reading. For fair readers of 7 or younger have a older sibling or parent to help; or better yet wait a while for them to have better reading skills, so that they can read. Also, there are a lot of stuff that involves the cards and books you have to buy, and some of the later missions get more difficult and stressful.

Only if you read the 39 clues.

Not really for learning and this site is only really good if you read the 39 clues. The 39 clues is a series of chapter books so really only really good for kids who read long chapter books. And there is a bit of violence in the 39 clues like people dying and explosions and stuff like that.
