Series: Nancy Drew

Here are several fun Nancy Drew websites.

Nancy Drew: Girl Sleuth, Girl Wonder

I owe my love of reading to this girl detective. I was also lucky enough to live overseas where television programming was only available for a few hours at night. If I had been overwhelmed with computers and video games and cable television at that formative age, I may never have acquired the reading bug.

I believe series readers become lifelong readers. You need to practice reading to become good at it.

So, thank you Stratemeyer Syndicate and Dav Pilkey and Walter Farley and Lemony Snicket and Brian Jacques and R.L. Stine and Mary Pope Osborne and ... You are drawing children to reading through your use of humor, adventure and thrills.
