This is the story of three Grade 5 school kids who decide to form a club to solve mysteries after hearing a career day presentation by a city detective. The story is based in Brockville, Ontario, Canada so includes a little local geography and some Canadian history. An older boy in Grade 6 tries to bully them at every turn but is rehabilitated when accepted as a member of the club. Mary, the first President of the club, calls a meeting to get everything organized. The boys quickly learn how to submit motions (mostly by agreeing to Mary's leadership) and understand the reasons for following Robert's Rules for meetings. The story includes a fishing adventure, an introduction to the game of golf and discussions with a retired sea captain about mysteries of the sea. Finally, the young detectives get an assignment requiring investigation and an undercover lemonade stand.
When he first started playing golf, Ricardo Sosapavon found little, if any, information in books that would actually help a beginning golfer-most books were too technical for the beginner or assumed the reader already has some familiarity with the game. This became the inspiration for I Love Golf! A Survival Guide for Beginners, a well-crafted, fun, and easy-to-understand golf instructional for anyone who is new to the game. I Love Golf! is written in a fun and informative way-golf lingo and concept are translated into every-day language so the reader can easily understand, and starts at the very beginning, giving detailed explanations of basic concepts such as: A thorough explanation of the game Easy-to-understand instructions and diagrams Suggestions on how to avoid embarrassment as a beginner Great anecdotes from the author's experiences as a golfer Tips for mastering the mental game I Love Golf! is the perfect book for anyone who wants to learn the game."
