I’m excited about my daughter asking me to start reading her Nancy Drew books last night, so I thought I would make this a Children’s Book edition of the Thursday Thumbs Up. I loved, loved, loved Nancy Drew books as a child. I remember seeking them out at the library, trying to read every single one of them. If one that I had not read was not available, I would re-read one or I would read a Hardy Boys book, but those paled in comparison to Nancy Drew. I wanted to BE Nancy Drew. Smart, well-dressed, pretty, popular, well-traveled, AND she drove a convertible. So, I started collecting the series for my daughter. I only have about a third of them currently as I wanted older ones (the new ones kind of ruin the vintage feel of Nancy Drew), so I get them at thrift stores, used book stores and the like. And suddenly, out of the blue, she asked me to start reading her one! I am hoping that she will love them as much as I do and as I read them, I see why I loved them so as a child. So, my first Thumbs Up today goes to Nancy Drew books!
These are some of my other Children’s Books favorites that I will recognize with a thumbs up!
Those are just a few of my favorites. I’m sure there will be many, many more as time goes on and I read with my daughter. But, I am happy that she is asking me to read Nancy Drew to her!
What are some of your favorite children’s books?
